The Financial Express, the only English financial daily in Bangladesh, began its journey on November 10, 1993. It was an ambitious venture on the part of the International Publication Limited to launch a financial English daily in Bangladesh.
It came into being as a pioneering financial newspaper of the country as there was no such daily even 10 years back.
The Financial Express has established a new trend in Bangladesh’s newspaper industry. Primarily its focus has been on news concerning economic activities at national, regional and international levels. It has done so and will continue to do the same in the future befitting its character much like those of its contemporaries in other parts of the globe. Being distinctive as a financial or economic daily does not mean that it has ignored the general news topics concerning socio-political and cultural activities. It has not neglected major developments, nationally and globally in areas that do not otherwise pertain to the economic life. This paper has done this without compromising its character.
The newspaper wants social development and poverty alleviation through quality of resources where there will be knowledge-based society.
The FE believes media can help bring about changes ------by promoting and facilitating two-way information flows fairly and objectively, notwithstanding many exogenous and endogenous constraints to their (media’s) discharging this responsibility.
The Financial Express is frequently quoted by the donors, development agencies and the government as the most trusted and authentic source of news. The internet edition is widely browsed by Bangladeshi nationals living abroad.
The Financial Express and its team are applauded by all.
