Freedom of the press and humanity are the foundation of The Epoch Times; our beginnings hailed from a great need to provide uncensored news to a people immersed in propaganda and censorship in China.

 

Having witnessed events like Tiananmen Square and the persecution of the spiritual group Falun Gong, and at a great risk to themselves and their loved ones, a group of Chinese-Americans started publishing The Epoch Times in the Chinese language in the U.S.

 

Some reporters in China were jailed, and some suffered severe torture. Integrity and truthfulness in reporting, together with the stories that really matter, are cornerstones to The Epoch Times.

 

The first English edition launched online in 2003 followed by the first print edition in 2004. Our beginnings have instilled in The Epoch Times staff an unwavering commitment to objective reporting and socially responsible business practices, as well as respect for human rights and freedom.

 

The Epoch Times is an independent voice in print and on the web. We report news responsibly and truthfully so that readers can improve their own lives and increase their understanding and respect for their neighbors next door and around the globe.

 

In our approach and in our content, we uphold universal human values, rights, and freedoms. We are a business that puts our readers’ interests first, in all that we do.

Elliot Lee founded his antique business in 1994. Having bought his first Antique piece at the tender age of eleven, it has since then been his passion for Antiques, Fine Art, and aesthetically beautiful Design that encouraged him to establish ART ANTIQUES DESIGN Ltd. in 2011.

AAD serves as a virtual meeting place and a connector for art, antiques and design professionals. It is a bridge for integration, learning and dialogue between these three markets.

In 2013, Elliot proposed the creation of an industry wide code of ethics to serve both dealers and collectors. A 'Straight Deal Charter’ of ethical business practice would lead to creating and maintaining a level of trust in the market sectors of Art, Antiques and Luxury Goods.

It is Elliot's ambition, through the network of AAD and backed by a Charter of Ethics, to instil as much confidence as possible in dealers, art consultants, artists and high profile brands who work with collectors and consumers.
