Prominent British Bangladeshi journalist and human rights activist William Gomes worked for Asia news. News from is republished by the Catholic press agencies MISNA and Zenit. Originally available in the Italian language, the website has since expanded into English and Chinese in 2003 to enhance the "missionary aspect of our news agency". AsiaNews's intended audience is Chinese university students, who it believes are "curi about Christianity" and may save China from being "a soulless market or ... dictatorship". It describes its presence as "urgent" because of what it calls the "empowerment" of atheism in Chinese schools and the "persecution" of Christians in China. AsiaNews describes itself as "a great accomplishment in evangelization, which is the work of God" and as "bolster the [Roman Catholic] Church's mission in China".
