Duowei News (Chinese: 多维新闻) is a Chinese language news website established in 1999 based in New York City, United States. It specializes in Chinese political news.[1][2] It is blocked in Mainland China.[3]

The website was founded by Ho Pin (何频) in 1999, who used to work for Chinese state-run paper but left due to feelings towards the Tiananmen Square crackdown of 1989.[4] In 2009, the website was sold to the Hong Kong media mogul Yu Pun-hoi.[5]

Ho Pin now publishes Mingjing News. Duowei has a news bureau in Beijing.[2][6]

Duowei News correctly predicted the lineups of the 16th and 17th National Congress of the Communist Party in 2002 and 2007 respectively.[7]
