The Free Press Journal (FPJ) and its sister publication Navshaki have officially entered into a news content sharing pact with Fomento Media, which publishes the English daily The Goan (published from Goa and Konkansaad) and the Marathi daily Goanvartha from Sindhudurg.
The MoU was signed and the digital edition of Free Press Journal Konkan was launched in the presence of Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant at an event in Dona Paula.
The Chief Minister said the arrangement would enable Goan news to reach national and international audiences.
Congratulating the two publishing houses for reaching an agreement to share content, Sawant hopes that Goa news and state government initiatives will enjoy wide coverage and boost the state’s image as continues his work to make Goa the tourism capital of India. .
Ashok Karnani, director of the Free Press Journal newspaper group, said: “Now is a good time to partner with other newspapers for content sharing rather than having multiple editions taking into account the huge increase the cost of newsprint and also of electronic paper, a culture which greatly attracts the current generation in the 18-30 age group.
Joe Louis – Director (Media) of Fomento said this is the start of a great partnership between two well-known media houses which will ensure higher quality content to be shared between the two and give them much reach and readership wider and therefore reach audiences around the world.
