The Independent European Perspective on News

dpa’s international news service in English provides clear and unbiased coverage of events worldwide with a focus on Germany and Europe. The dpa desks in Berlin and Sydney produce the service around-the-clock relying on dpa’s correspondent network in 55 cities in Germany and more than 90 countries around the globe.
As the biggest German news agency and one of the most important independent news agencies worldwide, dpa stands for reliable, up-to-date and comprehensive news coverage, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 
The editorial team is led out of Berlin by Helen Maguire. Since 1957, dpa has reported in English with its own network of correspondents from around the world.
