|| FT and IHT Announced Middle East Editions – almost same day!

The timing could have been coincidental, but they were announced on April 28 and April 30 respectively: Financial Times (FT) launching a Middle East edition and International Herald Tribune (IHT) starting printing in Dubai.

FT Editor: "We have identified a strong and growing demand for high quality, global independent news and analysis across the Gulf region. This demand reflects how the Gulf has quickly become a financial and business powerhouse and our new edition will cement the region's place in the global economy." (source)

IHT vice president of circulation and development: “we now have a great opportunity to reach many more globally-engaged readers in this most vibrant part of the world.” (PDF source)
