The Arab Weekly turns 3
The Arab Weekly turned 3 years old last week, yet another milestone on the journey it began on April 17, 2015, with the purpose of providing a fresh perspective on the Arab world.
Three years on, the newspaper continues to address the world’s information needs about the Arab region’s diverse parts, be they the Middle East, the Gulf countries, the Maghreb or the Levant. It continues to shed light on the roots and the fallout of the Syria and Iraq crises, the Arab-Israeli conflict, developments in Iran and Turkey and Western attitudes towards the Middle East and North Africa. It also takes a wide-angle view of business, tech, society, culture and travel.
It offers analysis and commentary, with a perspective that goes beyond coverage of breaking news. It pays special attention to ideas animating the Arab and Muslim communities in the West, with the aim of bridging a gap in cross-cultural understanding.
It has been a busy year leading up to the paper’s third birthday. With three editions, published from Britain, the United Arab Emirates and the United States, The Arab Weekly has worked to earn the continued loyalty of a discerning global readership.
Looking ahead, the newspaper has relaunched its website offering a more user-friendly, content-rich format optimised for computers, mobiles and tablets. All the publication’s content, including back editions, are archived online and available to search.
The Arab Weekly is part of a modern media project focusing on the Arab world. It is published by the Arab Media Group, which was inaugurated in 1977, and has a stable of popular publications, including Al Arab daily, Middle East Online and Al Jadeed.
The Arab Weekly and its sister publications hope to continue serving their regional and global readers in a rapidly changing world.
