The World: Moscow - CFO unveils plans to publish Russian edition

CFO, the monthly magazine for chief financial officers, which is published by The Economist Group, is to launch in Russia next month.

The move follows a deal between the group and the Russian publishing company B2B Media, which will publish the magazine under licence. CFO will be circulated to 25,000 Russian finance executives. It will combine local content with translated articles from CFO in the US, CFO Europe and CFO Asia.

Helen Alexander, The Economist Group chief executive, said: "This latest addition demonstrates our commitment to developing intelligent media brands."
