About

NewsViews is a community-focused news portal from Hamilton (New Zealand) and expects to fulfill the current void of a professionally written & produced content that focuses on the local and regional issues that affect the community – especially the ethnic groups.

From our perspective, it is important that the community has access to online news (and views) that they can trust and relate. At NewsViews, our endeavour will always be to inform and engage the community while ensuring content provided is accurate and coverage is fair.

Newsviews is a marathon, not a sprint. We expect it to evolve in the coming period based upon the valuable feedback of readers.

With the objective of presenting ‘News & Opinions that Matter‘, NewsViews has some selected features and columns of interest to keep readers informed of various topical issues.

Our column ‘ViewPoint‘, for example, is the platform to voice the opinions of law makers or persons of standing, on issues that are of interest to local communities.

There are no businesses or publishing houses behind this NewsViews venture. It is the passion and zeal of a former journalist/media person, Gurbir Singh*, who chose New Zealand to be his new home two decades back. And, the logo conveys the strong ties his home country, India has with New Zealand. He is backed by a small, dedicated team who are equally passionate for the success of this venture.

NewsViews looks forward to the valuable support of local community in making this venture a success.
