History
In mid-2007, Oriental Vision created a partnership with Jim Rothstein, the initiator of DaliansXpat.com, and AMMAT Dalian, to publish the first issue of the magazine, called “Focus Dalian,” for the 2007 Davos meeting. That publication, humble though it was, stirred up a great deal of interest. Foreign writers living in Dalian suddenly had a forum for expression. Businesses suddenly had a print vehicle to reach an English-speaking audience. And the community suddenly had a platform for informational and cultural exchanges.

In the Spring of 2010, the magazine went through a major reorganization and redesign. With new staff on board and a new look and feel, Focus on Dalian was re-born. With a significant increase in the Chinese content, Focus on Dalian expanded its capacity to reach the residents of the city, and to create a place for local and foreign residents come together. We’re working to make this the best and most exciting city in China to live, now and into the future.

Though the staff has changed through the years, and the organization has grown from a volunteer core of dedicated community members to a professional organization that seeks to continually improve the quality of our publication. But we’re still sustained by a great core of community members, both paid and volunteer. Back in its beginnings, the magazine was “for the community, by the community.” We still hold that ideal in making sure that we keep the focus on Dalian and its residents.
