SINGAPORE, 11 AUGUST 2004 - From September 1, The Business Times will come with stronger content and a fresh new look.
The new Business Times will pack in more pages and introduce a number of new features in a more reader-friendly format. Readers will be greeted with a new and more distinctive masthead, and the text will come in bigger typeface with more generous spacing.
But the main changes are aimed at giving readers more value-add in their choice of investments, and in the way they pursue their business, their careers and their lifestyles.
Said BT Editor Alvin Tay: "The reader-friendly presentation is intended for one purpose only, to engage our readers. We want BT to be the paper for business and investment decision-makers. Whether it is about picking the right stocks to invest in, or making the right business decisions, the new BT is designed to help professionals, managers, executives and businessmen make informed choices."
The revamped business daily, published by Singapore Press Holdings, will come in one section, with the inclusion of the Shipping Times in the main paper. Several new products will be introduced, while existing BT products will be refined and beefed up to better project the news, trends and views.
The last major makeover for the 28-year-old BT was done nine years ago.
The new-look BT will be unveiled at a trade launch at 7 pm today (11 August) for advertisers and advertising agencies at the Bar and Billiard Room, in Raffles Hotel.
Full details of the revamped BT are attached.
