News - Daily newspapers produced by the Government of Burma/Myanmar

  • "The [Global] New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" and "Myanmar Alin"
    We try to reduce the size of the original files, but this is difficult and very time-consuming with the Burmese language versions. Some of the reduced files are illegible on Mozilla Firefox so best to use other browsers such as Google Chrome. Try downloading large files with a (free) download manager such as Flashget.

    • Sources of the pdf versions of "The [Global] New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" ("The Mirror") and "Myanmar Alin"
      The online locations of these publications have varied over the past year or so with some sites closing down for a while, then re-opening - frequently with truncated archives. The Online Burma/Myanmar Library (OBL) attempts to keep a complete archive. Check these sources for the latest issues if they are not in the OBL sections below.

      Title: Myanmar Ministry of Information newspaper page
      Description/subject: 7 days' issues of the pdf versions of "The Global New Light of Myanmar", "Myanmar Alin" and "The Mirror" ("Kyemon"), but no archive beyond the 7 days...They normally appear here on the day of publication...Go to the right hand column and click on the paper you want....Further down on the right are the Facebook addresses of the 3 dailies. These are html versions which are smaller files, but navigation is difficult, especially for past issues (for which, go to the Online Burma/Myanmar archives from 2003 at http://www.burmalibrary.org/show.php?cat=1449&lo=d&sl=0 )

      Title: Myanmar Mission, Geneva - "The New Light of Myanmar" and "Myanmar Alin"
      Description/subject: Incomplete archives of "The New Light of Myanmar" and "Myanmar Alin" for 2014 and 2013. There is no archive at all for "The Mirror" (Kyemon"). The issues tend to appear here a few days after the day of publication. The archive used to go back to 2004..

      Title: "The Global New Light of Myanmar" (HTML)
      Description/subject: This html version has smaller files which open faster than the pdf versions, but navigation is difficult at present and not all items in the full version are included. There is an archive lower right which you can see by clicking on any of the top bar categories (but not Home)...It is not always easy to see what date you are in.

      Title: "The Global New Light of Myanmar" (HTML) via Facebook
      Description/subject: The advantage of the html version is that the files are small and access is fast. The disadvantage is that navigation is difficult, especially in the archive, and not all articles are carried. These problems will will no doubt be resolved as the site develops. The stories are contained in the right-hand column. Each has its individual URL which you have to click on to read the whole story and which may be permanent. Older stories are further down the column but you have to open the item to see the date.
