10 Years of excellent financial journalism

Twenty years ago, there were only a handful of financial publications available to the populace. Today, the situation is totally different . There are now thousands of financial websites, blogs, new aggregators, and commentary sites available to anyone with an internet connection.

This has changed the way economic and financial journalism works, affecting both the economics of the industry and how it is consumed by readers.

Business reporting has burst well beyond the traditional business pages. Many of the most important and contentious issues debated today — among them being taxation, trade agreements, fiscal and monetary policies—involve not only politics but also business and economics in some form.

Today, an understanding of the underlying economics enables journalists to cover critical stories with both precision and depth, and in so doing, help the reader to make sense of the world.

In a swirling storm of media disruption, undoubtedly, GRAPHIC BUSINESS has emerged as a beacon of best practices within this 10-year period of its existence. Since it was launched on August 28, 2008, as a weekly hitting the stands every Tuesday, the paper has become one of the must-read financial newspapers in the country. From fundamental daily coverage to long-form investigative work, we are breaking stories that are shaping the course of not just our economy, but also our democracy.

The paper’s segments of news analysis, comment, corporate news, news extra, companies and markets, management, information and communications technology (ICT) and transport business, offer quality information, comprehensive enough to help business executives, policy makers, investors and students to make informed decisions and provide proper perspectives on issues of the economy, finance and business.


We can say with pride that we are among the most essential platforms available in the media today. The innovations we have made with portability (apps, and web presence) make it a case study on how to distribute content effectively. The content we produce requires the ability to effectively tell a story, integrate data in a digestible and accessible format and be able to provide analysis.

It is our firm conviction that our business reporting offers the chance to combine the best of data journalism and storytelling and we are also ready to help meet the information demands of consumers in search of producers, workers seeking data, and an audience that values intriguing stories.

Graphic Business believes that good decision making depends on people having reliable and accurate facts put in a meaningful context and made reader-friendly by eliminating jargons as much as possible. Journalism does not pursue truth in an absolute or philosophical sense, but in a capacity that is down to earth.

Our works reflect the core values of the company, Graphic Communications Group Limited: We continue to provide leadership in everything we do; we demonstrate commitment to excellence; exhibit a high level of professionalism and integrity in our work and in the engagement of our stakeholders among others.

As we look into the next decade, we pledge to our stakeholders and readers our commitment to continue to uphold these values which have made us the market leader in a highly competitive industry. — GB
