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 about 154,000 makes it the second best selling Chinese daily newspaper in Malaysia. Its Night edition paper is the most popular[3] in Malaysia with a circulation of about 48,000.

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.
