About The Asian Tribune

As a paper, The Asian Tribune stands for news. Ever since its inception, it has set new standards in unbiased and fearless reporting. The thrust of the paper is as much regional as national and international. The Asian Tribune was one of the first papers in Bangladesh to publish a daily city/regional supplement extensively covering local news. This practice continues. The Asian Tribune has found a perfect blend of national and international news, and the first comment pages in the country, catering to all reader groups.
