dpa distributes exclusively news and features originating from the all-Asian newspaper alliance, the Asia News Network.

The ANN was founded in Manila in 1999 and is supported by the German Konrad Adenauer Foundation with the aim of uniting Asian newspapers. Today, the network is an alliance of 23 influential leading daily newspapers from 20 Asian countries.


The ANN service is an ideal information source for media outside of Asia.

  • A selection of up to 90 articles per day from influential leading daily newspapers in Asia
  • News, in-depth analysis, opinions, comments and background items on politics,economics, health and science, culture and entertainment
  • Multi-facetted feature stories with pictures, graphics and videos
  • Unique “Asian point of view” on Asian and global issues
  • Available seven days per week
  • Content from many sources in one package

With the goal of improving coverage of Asian affairs by Asian media.

The networking of newspapers in Asia was first discussed informally by Asian editors who participated in the first Asian-German Editors' Forum organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Manila. Encouraged by the forum’s success and the warm fellowship among them, the editors decided to pursue a more permanent professional and business relationship.
