4.3 billion people live in the world's largest continent, and we are telling their stories.

Launched in early 2015, Assignment Asia is an award-winning current affairs and documentary program on CGTN, the international news network of China Central Television.

Its in-depth reports and documentaries are driven by strong characters who shine a light on social issues and reflect the diversity of Asia -- ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

Our stories expose some of the most pressing issues facing the region. But we also tell stories of hope, courage, innovation, and change.

Relying on CGTN's pool of Asia correspondents and contributors, Assignment Asia offers visually stunning and engaging stories told from an Asian perspective.
