STAFF WRITER WITH CNA

After being shut down in June due to financial woes, the Central Daily News, affiliated to the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), was reborn yesterday as an electronic newspaper. Attending the publication's launch yesterday, KMT Chairman Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) expressed satisfaction that the newspaper had managed to survive. In addition to local readers, Ma said the online newspaper would attract readers from around the world, including Taiwanese businesspeople and their families. "We had no choice but to shutter the newspaper. But I am happy to see it find a way to survive," he said.
