The World: Lisbon - Metro International launches Portuguese edition

The Portuguese newspaper market is bracing itself for the launch of a local edition of Metro, following the creation of a joint venture between Metro International and the Portuguese media group Grupo Media Capital.

Grupo will create editorial for the free paper, while Metro Lisbon will hold a 65 per cent stake and manage operations.

The paper will be distributed every morning at Lisbon's subway stations, which carry around 170 million passengers per year.
