The International Herald Tribune (IHT) announced that it will expand in India with the launch of a branded world business section inside the Financial Chronicle, the new Indian business paper from the Deccan Chronicle Group. The IHT’s section will debut with the Financial Chronicle’s Mumbai edition launch on June 20.
The IHT logo will feature prominently on the front page and inside there will be a daily four-page version of its World Business with Reuters section, giving Financial Chronicle readers daily news and analysis on what is happening in companies and deals and in the financial markets around the world. This latest development for the IHT builds on recent expansion of its circulation in New Delhi and Mumbai where the paper is now available early each morning.
Stephen Dunbar-Johnson, publisher of the IHT said: ” Working with the Deccan Chronicle Group, a dynamic company with a proven track record in the market, will allow us to meet the growing appetite for high quality business content in India and make the IHT available to thousands more readers each morning throughout the country.”
“The Financial Chronicle, our newest title, was launched to satisfy India’s thirst for quality business news and crafted as a pure-play business daily to build on the aspirations of a young and prosperous India. We could not have asked for a better publisher than the IHT to provide the international business dimension ,” T. Venkattram Reddy, the chairman of Deccan Chronicle Holdings Limited, said.
