Who are we?
Trans Asia News Service is an alternative source of critical information to media outlets, business houses, governments and researchers worldwide from the Asian region. It is the first news service from India that provides news and analysis from the perspective of the most happening region of the world. Its coverage focus spans the Pacific to the Mediterranean.
However, special focus remains on South, East and Central Asia and the Middle East and the linkages between these regions.
The centrality of these regions is owed to profound structural transformations in domains as varied (but interrelated) as politics, finance, economics, political economy, state sovereignty and globalization over the past few decades. The locus of activity is shifting to Asia (as a broad category) and regions like the Middle East and Central Asia are becoming salient for geopolitical and security reasons.
What is our motto?
Trans Asia motto is to keep stakeholders abreast with latest news, information, and critical analyses from the region. The aim, besides providing latest news and incisive critical analyses is to accord a contrapuntal to the deluge of loosely crafted and slanted news by majority of media driven by varied interests.
In a world where information has been democratized and where an overabundance of information leads to ‘infoxication’ –a condition wherein a glut of information makes it difficult for people to sieve or differentiate truth from illusion-Trans Asia News differentiates itself by offering news and analyses defined by substance and sobriety.
How are we different from others?
Our USP and key differentiator is our approach towards analyses and teasing out unnoticed patterns in events, incidents and news. A clichéd observation which amounts to a truism is that we live in an interconnected world. Deep, dense and voluminous interactions between states, people and non state actors characterize the contemporary policy, political, economic and cultural worlds. By their very nature, these dense interactions do not occur in a vacuum. We, at the Trans Asia, recognise this trend and pattern and among other things aim to put these into.
The thrust of our approach and its novelty is that, at times, seemingly unimportant events, ignored or not held as important tend to be important both historically and in terms of the future. It is the patterns accruing from both regular events and ‘unnoticed ones’ missed out by most analyses that we discern and elaborate upon. In this, the Asian Review of International Affair (ARIA) is our special service.
Who is our audience?
Trans Asia’s foundational premise is the globalization of various spheres which determines its audience- policy makers, public intellectuals, governmental and non- governmental organizations, netizens and citizens of various countries. Trans Asia aims to generate debate and discussion on a range of issues and themes and offer inputs to movers and shakers across the world.
With news generating points in all major capitals of South, East, West and Central Asia, Trans Asia audience consists of countless of decision-makers who depend on its insightful and analytical stories to make better business, policy or even personal decisions.
