The Free Press Journal (FPJ) and its sister publication Navshaki have formally entered in to a news content sharing pact with Fomento Media, which publishes the English daily newspaper The Goan (published from Goa and Konkansaad) and the Marathi daily Goanvartha from Sindhudurg.
The MoU was signed and The Free Press Journal Konkan digital-edition was launched in the presence of the Chief Minister of Goa, Pramod Sawant, at an event in Dona Paula.
The Chief Minister said that this arrangement would enable news from Goa to reach national and international audiences.
Congratulating both the publication houses for entering into a content sharing agreement, Sawant hoped that news from Goa and the initiatives of the State Government would receive wide coverage and boost the image of the state as it continues its work to make Goa the Tourism capital of India.
Ashok Karnani, Director of Free Press Journal group of newspapers, said, “This is the right time to join hands with other newspapers for content sharing rather than having multiple editions taking into consideration the steep increase in the cost of the newsprint and also the Epaper culture that appeals immensely to the present generation in the age group of 18-30 years.
Joe Louis – Director (Media) of Fomento said that it is the beginning of a great partnership between two well-known Media Houses which will ensure better quality content to be shared between the two and will give them a much larger reach and readership and thus reach out to audiences across the globe.
