About us

Global Sources News Magazine is an independent publication financially supported by the business intelligence company GlobalSource Ltd.

The aim of the magazine is to produce original and credible international news reports and analysis.

This is not a PR exercise in support of a company; it instead uses a company’s international databases and contacts to support a news medium. Routine company PR news is entirely separate and confined to the company website news link.
