It is 51% owned by the China Xinhua News Network Corporation, and 49% by private investors, including Chinese home appliances maker Gree.

CNC World’s mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of world affairs while explaining matters of direct concern to the Chinese leadership in a perspective its producers consider appropriate.

The venture is part of Beijing’s effort to “present an international vision with a Chinese perspective,” Xinhua President Li Congjunsaid at the press conference announcing the launch of CNC World.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNC_World)
