The Financial Times, one of the world’s leading business

newspapers, is read by more than one million people in 140 countries

worldwide, serviced by 11 international print centres and a

sophisticated distribution system.



In addition to more than 300 full-time journalists, it has more than 40

full-time foreign correspondents based in major cities across the

globe.



The FT aims to provide readers with the most accurate and comprehensive

global business information, analysis and comment. Richard Lamber,

editor, comments: ’We aim to put national business news into an

international context by pulling together the unique resource of our

international network of correspondents and specialist reporters.’



The FT’s commitment to global expansion and internationalism was

reflected in its sales outside the UK in 1997, which grew 19 per cent

year on year. (Source: ABC Aug 97-Jan 98 vs Aug 96-Jan 97.)



However, the FT continues to focus strongly on the UK as well as

internationally and this has resulted in continuing success. Record

sales in the UK for both the weekday paper and the Weekend FT in 1997

declared it the fastest growing Saturday paper on the British Business

Survey. How To Spend It, the monthly glossy lifestyle magazine that

accompanies the Weekend FT, also went from strength to strength, voted

Colour Supplement of the Year at the 1997 UK Newspaper Design

Awards.



The FT would like to thank its readers, advertisers and agencies who

have supported it so strongly, and hopes they will continue to do so in

the future. The FT is very proud to be sponsoring Best Advertisement in

National Newspapers at the Campaign Press Awards and congratulates the

winner, as well as the other participants.
