News - Daily newspapers produced by the Government of Burma/Myanmar (archive from June 2003)
"The [Global] New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" and "Myanmar Alin"
We try to reduce the size of the original files, some of which are more than 40MB, 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 the originals of the large files with a (free) download manager such as Flashget.
"The Global New Light of Myanmar" 2015
In early 2015 the publishers put online drastically reduced issues of GNLM in which many of the colour images were so blurred that they are hardly recognisable.
"The New Light of Myanmar" 2003
Most issues from 16 June 2003 -- issues from June - October were downloaded from the Foreverspace site, which does not have a complete record.
Some of the original "Myanmar Alin" files are rather large (more than 10MB) and we have reduced some of them using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. Because these reduced files may contain font or other errors, we have also uploaded the original (and authoritative) files.
Text versions of news items from "The New Light of Myanmar"
These versions contain domestic and foreign news, but lack photos, editorial and articles. They are much smaller files than the full pdf versions. Unfortunately most have been removed from the Government sites and can only be found as archives - via archive.org
