《南洋商报》是于1923年9月6日创刊于新加坡,创刊人是被中国推崇为“华侨英雄”的陈嘉庚。

陈嘉庚认为教育可以兴邦,没有近代的商业经营和管理的学识,教育就无法办得好,没有良好的教育设施,国家就谈不上兴旺,而他办报正是为了提倡教育、传承中华文化。

他可以不惜用尽最后一分钱来推动文教公益事业,“倾资兴学”的精神,享誉至今。

《南洋商报》草创初期,两度停刊。首先是创刊23天后,英殖民地政府以“涉及党派政治”为理由,下令停刊;翌年2月1日获准重新出版。接着1941年12月8日太平洋战争爆发,被逼停刊3年7个月;1945年9月8日复刊。

在新加坡创刊的《南洋商报》,在1962年开始在吉隆坡编印制作马来亚版,1965年马新分家,《南洋商报》一分为二。1983年新加坡《南洋商报》与《星洲日报》合并为《联合早报》,从此《南洋商报》成了道道地地的马来西亚报章。

1989年,《南洋商报》成为第一家在吉隆坡股票交易所挂牌的中文报。1993年,南洋报社收购《中国报》和生活出版社全部股权,成为我国最大的华文出版集团。

1996年,配合互联网时代的来临,率先在网络上发布电子新闻。

2006年,实业家丹斯里张晓卿爵士买下南洋报业股权,崛起成为最大股东。

2008年4月23日,南洋报业集团、星洲媒体集团及明报企业合并为“世界华文媒体集团”,成为首家在马来西亚和香港双边上市的企业,也是领先全球的华文媒体集团。

《南洋商报》定位鲜明,内容以提供和满足专业人士、管理人、执行人员及商人的阅读需求为取向,两大卖点是财经资讯最齐全、国际新闻最快捷。

在瞬息万变的科技时代,《南洋商报》于2013年趁着热烈庆祝创刊90周年之际,顺势推出了电子报;2015年,也推介在移动配备拥有更大效能的电子网站,取名“e南洋”。

About Us

Nanyang Siang Pau (NSP), a Chinese daily newspaper, was founded on 6 September 1923 in Singapore by the late Mr. Tan Kah Kee, highly regarded in China as a “hero to the overseas Chinese”.

It was Tan’s belief that a nation’s prosperity depends upon education, which in turn cannot be run successfully without the knowledge of modern business administration. No country can advance if there is no proper education infrastructure.

Tan turned to journalism precisely to encourage teaching and learning, as well as to preserve Chinese culture. He would not hesitate to spend his last cent for the promotion of public welfare. Resolving to devote all his fortune for education, he earned a reputation that lives on to this day.

In its early days, NSP had its publication suspended twice. The first instance took place just 23 days after its appearance, when the British colonial government ordered its suspension on grounds of “involvement in party politics”. Printing was resumed in the following year on 1 February. Subsequent to the outbreak of the Pacific War on 8 December 1941, it ceased publication again for 3 years and 7 months and did not reopen until 8 September 1945.

The Malayan edition of the then Singapore-based NSP made its debut in Kuala Lumpur in 1962. At the separation of Singapore from Malaysia in 1965, NSP split into two corresponding local editions. The Singapore editions of NSP and Sin Chew Jit Poh merged into Lianhe Zaobao in 1983, ever since then NSP has been a genuine Malaysian newspaper.

In 1989, NSP became the first Chinese daily to be listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE).

1993 saw the acquisition by Nanyang Press, the parent company of NSP, of a full stake in China Press and Life Publishing to form the largest Chinese-language press group in Malaysia.

With the advent of the information age, NSP took the lead in 1996 to launch its website, publishing electronic news on the Internet.

A decade later, Tan Sri Datuk Sir Tiong Hiew King, a businessman, purchased the entire stock of Nanyang Press and rose to become its largest shareholder.

23 April 2008 marked the merger of Nanyang Press, Sin Chew Media and Ming Pao Enterprise to create Media Chinese International, the first entity dually listed in Malaysia and Hong Kong, as well as a world-leading Chinese-language press group.

Having established a clear positioning, NSP supplies and fulfills the reading needs of professionals, managers, executives and businessmen. It boasts two major selling points, i.e. the most comprehensive business information and the fastest international news.

In the fast-changing era of technology, NSP commenced the publication of its electronic newspaper in honour of its 90th anniversary in 2013, and introduced eNanyang.my, a news portal that is more functional on mobile devices, in 2015.
