As the saying goes, “Change is the only constant in life“.
We at The Online Citizen, who have always sought to put the pulse of the nation at the forefront of everything we do, will be undergoing a rebranding exercise.
We understand that Singaporeans are an increasingly globalised bunch who want access not just to Singapore-centric news, but to responsibly-sourced and investigated news and opinions from the wider Asian region.
As of 5 May 2020, we will be renamed The Online Citizen Asia, with a brand new domain “OnlineCitizenAsia.com” and logo, to reflect our increasingly diverse readership and contributors.
It will still be primarily driven by online citizens — but instead of just Singapore, it will be online citizens of Asia as well.
We see ourselves as global citizens providing citizen-driven Asian news. Some day, we may even be international. But, one step at a time.
While this was a move that has been in the works for some time, the COVID-19 pandemic has really brought home the fact that we live in an intertwined world.
Reflecting our growth, this rebranding exercise is also a natural progression on our part to provide not just cutting edge independent local news, but also well-researched and professional news content in the region as well.
We aim to be a liberal, human and civil rights-focused publication for the region. With our growing regional readership and contributors, we are well-placed to provide such a rights-based news platform.
We hope that our supporters will join us on this exciting new journey to soar to greater heights.
