The Taipei Times is the only printed daily English-language newspaper in Taiwan and the third to be established in the nation.[1] Online competitors include The China Post, Focus Taiwan and Taiwan News. Established on 15 June 1999,[2][3] the Taipei Times is published by the Liberty Times Group, which publishes the Chinese-language newspaper the Liberty Times, Taiwan’s biggest newspaper by circulation with a pro-Taiwan independence editorial line.[4]

On 15 May 2017, the China Post was the Times' last English-language competitor to go out of print and the Taipei Times is consequently offered at most points of sale, hotels and libraries as the English-language option.

Along with such newspapers as The Guardian, it is a participant of Project Syndicate, established by George Soros.[5]
