Sankei Shimbun (産経新聞 Sankei Shinbun?), literally "Industrial and Economic Newspaper", is a daily newspaper in Japan published by the Sankei Shimbun Co., Ltd. (株式会社産業経済新聞社 Kabushiki-gaisha Sangyō Keizai Shinbunsha?). It has the sixth highest circulation for a newspaper in Japan, and is considered one of the five "national" newspapers.[2]

The slogan which they had hung up once,「We do not crowd together with other media. We do not escape from power.(群れない。逃げない。)」 Unlike writing the same report by bid rigging in a press club, the newspaper of other Japan has an original opinion in the field of many, and this newspaper is writing the original report which depends on original coverage so that it may point. Also often and bad, it is a characteristic of this newspaper.

They say that what "the mission of my press is achieved for without not fearing national power of Japan, and not being passed by public opinion but being shy with a foreign country and the specific pressure group in Japan" is a basic position. (The October 15, 2014 paper editorial)

The tone of argument of the politics of this newspaper is centrist maintenance, and criticizes neo-classicism and a neoliberalism person based on New Keynesian economics in many cases economically.

This newspaper is always keenly opposed to Nihon Keizai Shimbun which advocates neoliberalism, and Asahi Shimbun which advocates Marxian economics.

On 1 October 2007, Sankei Shimbun's website and MSN Japan started a content partnership, MSN Sankei News.[3]
