Germany: newsweekly Focus and The Economist are entering exclusive content syndication agreement

Starting this week with issue #33, the German newsweekly FOCUS just revealed it had reached an exclusive content syndication partnership with the renown London-based weekly “The Economist” magazine.

FOCUS will be the first print medium in Germany to feature content of The Economist translated into German.  In addition, FOCUS will have access to the latest analysis and reports being funneled through the economic title’s unique international network of business correspondents.  FOCUS’ new editor in chief Wolfram Weimer was thrilled to announce this journalistic cooperation with a major global player such as The Economist.  Only a few years after he took the reins of the newsweekly, it is quite a coup already for Weimer! 

Lastly, FOCUS announced that it would also publish a German version of The Economist’s spinoff “The World In” tailored for the German market.  The on-sale date is planned for December 6.   FOCUS and The Economist will publish it jointly with most content being translated from the English version.
