China Press (Chinese : 中國報 Zhong Guo Bao in Mandarin) is a Malaysian Chinese-language newspaper set up by Tun Henry Lee Hau Shik (H. S. Lee) and first published on 1 February 1946.

On 13 May 1969, China Press was suspended for a month following its publication of a court news item after the 13 May Incident.

China Press relaunched in 1986, and by 1988, its daily circulation had increased from 20,000 to 100,000, making it the fastest-growing paper in Malaysia. Today, its daily circulation of 220,000 makes it the second best selling Chinese daily newspaper in Malaysia.

Due to its popularity in Malaysia, China Press launched their evening version on 19 May 1990 with the mission statement of Today News Tonight Know.

In 1993, Nanyang Press took over the management of China Press.
