To connect and engage audiences by facilitating an informed and intelligent
dialogue - a global conversation - which transcends international
borders and cultural divides, and to give audiences opportunities to
create, publish and share their own views and stories.
To provide the most trusted, relevant and high-quality international
news in the world and an indispensable service of independent analysis
and explanation, with an international perspective that promotes greater
understanding of complex issues.
And by so doing, to enable people to make sense of their increasingly
complex world and, thus empowered, lead more fulfilling lives.
