China’s first Myanmar-language newspaper was launched on December 4, targeting Myanmar nationals working in Yunnan province, the state-owned Xinhua reported Monday.
Paukphaw, a weekly, means “the friend” but specifically defines a “Chinese friend” in the Myanmar language.
The newspaper targets Myanmar people who are working in China’s southwest region Yunnan Province.
Paukphaw, owned by Tuanjie Newspaper of Dehong Dai and Jinpo Autonomous Prefecture, will be handed out free of charge.
There are more than 50,000 Myanmar people living in Dehong, Xinhua said.
