Widely recognised as the nation's most dependable and credible source of news and information, United News of Bangladesh serves about 50 million consumers daily.

Powered by a network of local writers covering 54 districts, as well as a collection of international correspondents and partners, the UNB newsroom also offers a Bangla service. This translation of English content to Bangladesh’s official national language, Bengali, is primarily for transmission to newspapers outside the capital Dhaka but the agency’s subscribers extend to all of the region’s leading newspapers, radio, state-owned television network BTV, and government offices.

In addition to being part of the AsiaNet consortium, UNB is also a member of the Commonwealth Press Union, the Organisation of Asian and Pacific News Agencies, and the Asian Mass Communication Research and Information Centre.
