China Daily is the largest English-language daily in China. Although it is state-owned, it is not officially a mouthpiece of the ruling Communist Party and is considered more liberal than the other Chinese state newspapers. It is, however, subject to state censorship. It is aimed primarily at foreigners living in China. One third of its circulation is distributed abroad. There is also a US edition, an Africa edition, and a European edition, and it is available in Chinese and French as well as English.
