AKRON, OHIO -- Plastics News China has a new logo, a new look, a new publishing frequency and other, less-visible enhancements. U.S.-based Plastics News has been publishing its PN China eWeekly email newsletter -- in both Chinese and English -- since June 2005. With this edition, we are making some major changes.

We have redesigned both the newsletter and our related Plastics News China website (www.pnchina.com) to make them fresher, more modern and easier to read. Working with a website developer in Shanghai, we now are running our China site from servers in China, which will allow the web pages to load faster for users in Asia.

We also now will publish the renamed PN China Report twice as often – arriving in readers' in-boxes in China on Tuesday and Friday mornings (and in Western readers' in-boxes on Monday and Thursday afternoons). This will allow us to deliver our independent reporting and analysis of breaking news and industry trends in a more timely manner.

We still have the same strong editorial staff behind our China products, with Nina Ying Sun serving as PN China managing editor, and Steve Toloken as our Guangzhou-based staff reporter and Asia bureau chief, plus a growing base of freelance editorial contributors inside China. Plastics News Editor Don Loepp and his team of U.S.-based reporters and global correspondents also contribute original content to the China products.

Plastics News and PN China – together with their European sister publications European Plastics News and Plastics & Rubber Weekly – comprise the world's largest plastics publishing organization. This team will be producing the English-language show dailies (six issues in eight days) at the huge plastics trade show, K 2013, in Düsseldorf, Germany, this coming October.

Meanwhile, Chinese readers also can continue to track PN China's news via Sun's postings on our Sina Weibo site (www.weibo.com/pnchina). Let us know what you think of our changes.
