RepublicAsia Team

These young people want a news platform that is interactive. Because they want to have a say, they read, they listen, but they too have a story to tell. And they want to tell it. Their way.

Allowing these people to tell their story. That is what we have in mind. And so, Republic Asia was born. Republic Asia is at the center of that challenge: the future of journalism.

It is going to redefine traditional news by harnessing the power of Digital Platforms and the potentials of Civic Journalism. Republic Asia is all about that.
