The Central News Agency (CNA) is the state-owned news agency in the Republic of China (Taiwan).

In addition to its Chinese (Mandarin) edition, it also has English, Japanese, and Spanish editions. It has a 300-strong employee base, and has overseas branches in some 30 countries. It works with a number of well-known news agencies around the world; such as the US-based Associated Press, Reuters of London, England, the German Deutsche Welle, and France-based Agence France-Presse.


Mainland China

The agency was founded 1 April 1924; 96 years ago (1924-04-01), by the Kuomintang (KMT). Its headquarters was originally located in Guangzhou of mainland China, but had to be relocated to Taipei in 1949, following the Republic of China (ROC) government after the Chinese Civil War, due to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s victory, while the CCP established its new official news agency, Xinhua News Agency.[1]


Despite the corporatisation of the agency in 1973, it continued to receive heavy government subsidies, and remained the nation's official state agency. At the time, journalists from CNA received preferential treatment on various occasions, mostly government-related press conferences. On 1 July 1996, the agency took the form of a non-profit organisation under a bill passed by the Legislative Yuan.[1] Today, the agency is still the official news agency of Taiwan, and receives part of its funding from the Executive Yuan. However, its media influence is said to have diminished a great deal due to a rise in competition after the government decided to lift restrictions on mass media.
