The Youth Daily News is a newspaper published by the Government of the Republic of China. Back in 1952, the General Political Warfare Department decided to found the Youth Warrior Daily for arming servicemen’s thought and enhancing strength of faith as a means to unify young civilians and soldiers and complete revolutionary missions. After a half-year preparation, it started publication on October 10, 1952. The Youth Warrior Daily was an internal newspaper, with a quarter-cut paper, only published in the military. In order to improve its informational impact, the Youth Warrior Daily was renamed as the Youth Daily News on October 10, 1984.
As a platform for promoting military information efforts, besides those ordinary news report similar to other media counterparts, the Youth Daily News focused on governmental and defense-related news. Through newspapers, YDN website, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and APP, the Youth Daily News can broadcast information of military readiness & training, all-out defense events and other activities in a real-time basis after it was transformed as a digitized professional military journalistic organization.
To integrated our military informational services, the Youth Daily News merged New China Publisher and began to manage Endeavor, Victorious, Home, Sweet Home periodical journals, internet E-book authorization and digitalized creative art work design. The YDN since became a multi-purpose military information organization. On January 1, 2018, Home & Sweet Home journal merged Victorious magazine and re-arranged as a bimonthly journal.
New China Publisher was former Youth Army Publisher during the War of Resistance against Japan, which was under Central Military Committee. After the Great Victory of War against Japan, the Government Information Office took over Youth Army Publisher and renamed it as New China Publisher, which was responsible for publishing several journals including Nation-Construction Youth fortnightly, Cultural Intelligence weekly, Military Digest and Chinese Pictorial. The first two journals were also available for the public.
