Shin Min Daily News (Chinese: 新明日报; pinyin: Xīnmíng Rìbào; lit. 'New Ming Pao Daily') is a Singapore Chinese-language afternoon newspaper published by SPH Media. The Newspaper was founded on 18 March 1967, by Singapore businessman Liang Runzhi (梁潤之) and Hong Kong writer Louis Cha as an offshoot of Hong Kong's Ming Pao. The Newspaper featured exclusive serializations of some of Cha's wuxia novels in its early days. In the early 1980s, Cha sold His shares in the paper after the Singapore government ruled that foreigners could only hold up to 3% of shares in locally based papers.

Shin Min was also published in Malaysia until 1994, and it was the first Chinese language newspaper to be published in tabloid.
