“Sin Chew Daily was incorporated in 1929, and has continued publications in various circumstances; under British colonialism, Japanese Occupation, Independence Movement, as well as the early years of nationhood until today.

Sin Chew Daily was suspended on two occasions; first during the Japanese Occupation of Malaya and Singapore between 1942 and 1945, and the second time was when the Malaysian government suspended Sin Chew Daily’s licence under the Printing Presses and Publications Act in 1987. With the effort of the current chairman Tan Sri Sir Tiong Hiew King, Sin Chew Daily resumed publication on 8th April 1988.

The circulation of Sin Chew Daily has improved steadily ever since the resumption of its publication. Today, some 400,000 copies of the newspaper are sold each day, with more than 1.18 million people reading it in Malaysia, making Sin Chew Daily not only the best selling Chinese language newspaper in Southeast Asia, but also the largest Chinese language newspaper outside mainland China.

In October 2004, Sin Chew Daily, along with its sister publications Guang Ming Daily, Eye Asia, and three educational publications Cahaya Sin Chew, Sinaran Sin Chew and Bintang Sin Chew, were formally restructured as Sin Chew Media Corporation Berhad, and was listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia.

On 29 January 2007, Sin Chew Media Corporation and the Ming Pao Group of Hong Kong announced a merger program, and invited the participation of Nanyang Press Holdings. Under the merger program, the three media groups merged to form Media Chinese International Limited. Subsequently, Media Chinese International Limited took over Sin Chew Media Corporation’s listing status on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia, to become the first company seeking a dual listing in both Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Among the renowned Chinese language publications under its banner are Ming Pao, Sin Chew Daily, Guang Ming Daily, Nanyang Siang Pau, China Press, as well as Yazhou Zoukan, and more than 30 other periodicals. Ming Pao is published in three different editions in North America, namely Toronto, Vancouver and New York. Sin Chew also runs Cambodia Sin Chew Daily in Cambodia and Harian Indonesia in Indonesia.


《星洲日报》曾二度停刊,第一次是在1942至1945年,因日军南侵,马、新两地相继沦陷而被迫停刊;第二次是1987年遭马来西亚政府援引出版和印刷法令吊销出版准证。 1988年4月8日,在现任社长丹斯里张晓卿爵士及高层的努力争取之下,《星洲日报》得以复刊。
