The Barents Observer launches Chinese version

The growing engagement of China in the Arctic is accompanied by independent Chinese-language news from and about the region.

«We want people in China to know more about our Arctic region,» says Atle Staalesen, publisher at the Barents Observer.

His online newspaper has over the last 16 years delivered daily news reports from the North in English and Russia. Now, the media organization starts publications also in Chinese.

It is the first newspaper in Norway that opens a Chinese-language section.

«The Chinese are here and they deserve news information in their own language,» says Staalesen.
