Editor’s Note

Eskandar Jahanbani Editor in Chief

Newspaper doomsday scenarios are all over Internet. There is no doubt that newspapers, in order to survive have to reinvent themselves. Some are resorting to paywall system through which a certain percentage of the newspaper content is blocked and it is only available if the online reader is willing to pay. Manufacturers on the other hand are also adapting to new realities. In this issue we have asked major manufacturers of newspaper presses their take on the diminishing newspaper industry. Their strategy lies in launching more efficient and environmentally friendly presses, meanwhile cutting the cost as much as possible. In our region however, newspapers are still very alive. Arab spring is in full swing and new political environments have created perfect ground for newspapers to blossom. As a case study in this issue we take an incisive look at one of the most well known newspapers in Arab World. After the uprising in Egypt, Al Ahram had to endure radical changes and reinvent itself editorially and structurally. Al Ahram’s experience is a perfect example of media in transition. In this issue we have also interviewed Wan IFRA’s top authorities; Jacob Mathew, President of WAN-IFRA and Larry Kilman, Deputy CEO of WAN-IFRA. Both are very optimistic about the future and they dismiss the imminent doom of the newspapers. As usual in this issue we have a round up on the latest investments throughout the region, from Egypt to Iraq. It seems that Iraq is slowly re-emerging from the ashes of war. More and more news of companies or associations that buy printing equipment are coming from Iraq. For ink and paper aficionados, Iraq’s new found love affair with printing is Cause Celebre. Drupa is fast approaching. As part of our ongoing series on drupa we have included latest updates on the show. These are exciting times for graphic arts industry and we certainly enjoy being part of it.

Iraq: Imam Hussein Holy Shrine Signs Contract to Equip Printing Press Costing 3 million dollars, the contract is designed to meet the printing demands of the shrine

ME Printer October 2011

Abd-ul-Mahdi Karbalaee General Secretary of the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine signing the contract


The Imam Hussein Holy Shrine in Iraq will equip their new print house with a range of Heidelberg offset machines. Going ahead with the deal, the General Secretary of the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine, Abd-ul-Mahdi Karbalaee recently signed the contract with Safwa, a subsidiary of the Sadoun Printing Company in Baghdad, Iraq. Head of the Finance department in the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine, Gelawi Naima Al Silawi, while speaking to ME Printer said that the General Secretary of the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine had signed a contract with Al Safwa Company to buy Heidelberg offset machines at a cost of USD 3 million. The machines will be used to cover all the printing needs of the holy shrine, the printing works for the school of Imam Hussein and other seasonal works. He further explained that the Holy Shrine has constructed a

large building equipped with facilities for the printing press. He added that the deal would help them save a major chunk of their printing costs as earlier they used to spend up to 900 million Iraqi dinars per year (about 8000000 US dollars) for printing materials in other presses. Al Silawi says, “The idea for establishing a printing press occurred three years ago and all the while we have been working to obtain approvals from authorities, complete and equip the press building, select and train the work force, develop a detailed study of the machines required that adapts and works in the climatic conditions of Iraq and also their ability to meet the needs of the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine.” Al Silawi mentioned that the decision to buy Heidelberg machines was made after a thorough enquiry in different companies that imports modern printing equipments. The Grand Secretary General of the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine had set up an ad hoc committee to select the best proposals and after scrutinizing more than 10 submissions, they chose Safwa to deliver the Heidelberg machines. Silawi said that the machines would be installed in

a period of five months and they hoped that the printing press would start functioning by this year end. Muwaffaq Abu Hamra, Manager of Safwa said that the company will offer full assistance and support for the functioning of the press at Imam Hussein Holy Shrine and explained that the 29 units of the press that are to be installed are fully computer controlled and easy to operate. He said that the contract entered with the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine includes installation of all the printing equipments required by the press and also to train the work force and provide equipment maintenance for the entire year. Abdel Saheb Ibrahim, Director of Al Warith printing centre, which belongs to Imam Hussein Holy Shrine, expressed the hope that the new printing press would meet all printing needs of the shrine. He said, “Our media and intellectual department are involved in the work of different publications that are printed on a weekly, monthly, annual and even seasonal basis. With the new printing press, we are trying to meet all these printing demands.” The holy shrine aims to employ almost 50 trained staff in the new printing press.

Libya: Currency Printed in UK to be Handed Over by RAF The cash worth US$ 1.55 billion would be used to pay off workers in the public sector With the asset freeze lifted over Col. Muammar Gaddafi, the Royal Air Force of Britain flew about £140m of Libyan banknotes (280 m Libyan dinars) to Libya. The cash that was printed in UK will be handed over to Libya’s Central Bank. An official from the Whitehall said that the money would be made available through ATM counters and banks very soon. The decision to deliver the Libyan currency was made following the decision of the United Nations sanctions committee in New York. An official from the United Nations said that the cash worth US$ 1.55 bn would be used to pay off workers in the public sector including nurses,

doctors, teachers and police officers. Most of people, working in the government sector have not been paid for the past few months. The official added that the money will also be used to help the refugees, who were affected by the conflict. All the funds in Libya were frozen on

last February following the situation in Libya. Meanwhile, Germany has also agreed to release about 1 bn Euros (£900m), while France would release about 5bn Euros ((£4.4bn) to help the humanitarian services going on in Libya.

Abu Dhabi: United Printing & Publishing Seals Deal For a Kodak Nexpress SE3000 It is the first step of the print house into digital aimed to meet the requirements of international publishers

ME Printer October 2011

We wanted to divert the shortrun jobs from our offset capabilities to digital and thereby free the offset presses for larger volume jobs. This gives us faster turnaround on short-runs with better pricing. It also saves paper and reduces the associated costs Ali Saif Al Neaimi


United Printing & Publishing (UPP) recently invested in a KODAK NEXPRESS SE3000 Digital Production Colour Press to spearhead its on-demand print service. “Digital printing is a new area for us and we have started to meet the growing demand for the ‘on demand print’ segment of the industry,” said UPP CEO, Ali Saif Al Neaimi. UPP’s NEXPRESS SE3000 Digital Production Colour Press joins two 16-page commercial web offset presses, two eight-colour sheetfed offset perfecting presses and a number of multicolour sheetfed offset presses that also delivers specialised coating applications. Ali Saif Al Neaimi explains the decision, “We liked the combination of impressive quality with high production, commercial viability and 3D printing capabilities. We reviewed the leading industry systems available in the region but felt the NEXPRESS SE3000 Press was the ideal solution for us. We wanted to divert the short-run jobs from our offset capabilities to digital and thereby free the offset presses for larger volume jobs. This gives us faster turnaround on short-runs with better pricing.

It also saves paper and reduces the associated costs.”


Scheduling improvements and operational savings were not the only benefit, explains Ali Saif Al Neaimi. “We could have outsourced digital print until the volume piles-up. However, as a company, we prefer to have a one stop print solution.” But it is not just the ability to offer a complete service that convinced Ali Saif Al Neaimi to invest now. “We foresee the transition from offset to digital happening slowly but surely and therefore made this proactive investment looking into our future. Now our customers are confident to share their database and information needed for VDP as the entire operation is handled confidentially within our company.” As a result of the new addition, UPP is reportedly enjoying higher profitability on short run jobs, additional revenue through Transpromo, faster turnaround, the business winning capability of offering variable data and personalisation as well as Dimensional Printing and embossing and debossing

effects. Some of the jobs that the company was printing using offset technology are now completed on the NEXPRESS SE3000 Press because of the time frame, run length and the cost factors. This has created new business for the digital press and at the same time kept UPP’s offset presses free to take on the longer run and more demanding jobs. While Ali Saif Al Neaimi says it is too early to comment on the ROI and the overall benefits, he states, “By and large the investment has really helped us extend our services into the new and future segment of digital POD. Customers have also noticed the difference and operators have embraced the new press, in particular the ORC system, which is handy for our maintenance team and ensures uninterrupted print production.” Arif Khan, Area Manager, Kodak (Near East) Inc, adds, “This cooperation has been a true partnership. By involving each other from the start in each company’s possibilities, opportunities and necessities, we were really able to define a mutually beneficial solution for both parties.” Established in 2006, UPP specialises in newspaper and commercial offset printing. With an annual turnover of AED 260 million and 500 employees, it offers a wide range of commercial and newspaper print production services for print buyers from regional and international publishers, advertising agencies as well as corporate operations. Key clients include Abu Dhabi Media Company, Al Ittihad, Financial Times and educational books for Macmillan Publishers plus many weekly and monthly magazines for regional as well as international markets.

Dubai: Xerox Digital Packaging Solution Now FDA Compliant Printers can now offer more short-run packaging options to marketers

Xerox Corporation’s iGen® family of digital presses and toners are now compliant with Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) guidelines for dry foods. With this, customised folding cartons can now be created quickly and cost-effectively, speeding the time to market, increasing brand

recognition and driving sales. According to industry consultancy Pira International, the worldwide digital printing market for packaging and labels is expected to reach $6.75 billion by 2014. With Xerox’s digital packaging solution, printers can offer more short-run packaging option to marketers, addressing promotional needs ranging from nationwide launches and regional brands to specialty items and prototype products. “FDA compliance is a significant advancement for Xerox and should open a new market for printers creating limited quantities of customised packages,” said Joel Bienvenu, Research Manager, Production Print, IDC.” He added that the print quality and colour vibrancy of the iGen4press allows manu-

facturers to add ‘pop’ to their product packaging. The iGen4 press can quickly store and reprint thousands of folding carton SKUs and easily switches from one job to the next, providing the flexibility and speed needed in today’s changing marketplace. Other benefits of Xerox’s packaging solution include the capability to reduce costs related to warehousing, storage and disposal of obsolete cartons. It also helps in the production of the entire print campaign starting from the creation of packaging till the production of marketing collateral such as point-of-sale signage. It also has the ability to support seasonally focused marketing campaigns and respond more rapidly in competitive markets.

Tunisia: Printing Market Faces High Demand Prior to Elections

ME Printer October 2011

The number of printing machines in Sfax rose to 40 within a short period


Printing presses in Tunisia are very busy these days, with the rising demand for printing brochures, leaflets, posters and other promotional material required by political parties. With elections for the Constitu-

ent Assembly scheduled to be held on October 23, printing presses are running to meet the high demand. The country’s newspaper features a barrage of commercials and advertisements of political parties and the cost for a full colour page advertisement usually comes to about a thousand and five hundred dinars (about a thousand US dollars). Based on a report published by the Asharq Al-Awsat, a large number of outsiders and intermediaries act between the people who want to advertise and the advertising agencies. That is why the prices have gone up drastically. On the positive side the high demand for printed products has led to the increase in the numbers of

printing machines, scanners, copiers etc. In the city of Sfax alone, (which is situated 350 km south of Tunis), 40 printing machines as well as copiers have been installed. The political climate has created an unprecedented competition in the printing, advertising and publishing industry. The report prepared by the ‘Tunisian Association of Democratic Women’ showed that political advertisements now fills 21 % of the Tunisian newspapers ad space and the average monthly order for print advertising by political parties have risen 1000 fold. Also online advertising is on the rise, as some political parties resort to social networking sites such as Facebook to woo their voters.

Egypt: Canon ME Wins ‘Print For Pay’ Tender From Printness The imagePress 6010 will be used to print books, direct mail pieces, marketing collateral etc. Canon Middle East has won the tender from Printness, Egypt’s leading digital and off-set printing house for the supply of a Canon imagePRESS 6010 unit. The contract is valued at US $ 150,000. “This is an affirmation of the superiority of Canon’s colour quality and business solutions. Canon’s products, solutions and professional services always strive to make its customers more productive and the tangible benefits experienced by Printness is a testament to this,” said Naoshi Yamada, Deputy Managing Director, Canon Middle East. “Colour management can be

very challenging, with regular calibration needed to produce the best results, but it can also disrupt production processes. Through Canon’s imagePRESS digital printing solutions, we have been able to eliminate paper rejections and wastage accrued by many printing houses because of inconsistency in colour and delays in production,” added Naoshi. Naoshi also explained that with the imagePRESS 6010, Printness can produce documents that rival offset quality and maintain superior colour consistency for a wide range of jobs, including books, hardcopy reproductions, direct

mail pieces and other marketing collateral. “We migrated to Canon’s imagePRESS solutions to enable us to achieve greater productivity and efficiency in our print for pay and graphic arts services. We were impressed not just with the technical solutions offered by Canon but also its after-support services, which are critical for a serviceoriented business like ours,” said Abd Elhakim Bakry, Sales Director (ETCO). The imagePRESS C6010 is reportedly said to reproduce clear, sharp images with lifelike skin tones, smooth gradients, and colour accuracy.

ME Printer October 2011

The print house will produce 60 rotogravure cylinders per day


Negar Tabriz print house recently opted for a state-of-the-art gravure engraving system from Swiss manufacturer Daetwyler. For the galvanic treatment of rotogravure cylinders the company purchased equipment from K. Walter. The total investment is to the tune of $7milion.

The company’s new 5000 square meter premise for the rotogravure engraving operation was completed in August. The new equipment will enable Negar Tabriz to produce 60 rotogravure cylinders with the lengths of up to 2650 mm and circumferences of up to 34mm per day. The company is also fully equipped to offer flexo prepress services. Mohammad Akbar Zadeh, Company’s Managing Director says that with the new set up the company will

be able to offer engraving services to neighbouring countries as well be able to satisfy local demands for high quality and durable rotogravure cylinders. “Our flexo clients can place order and fill the forms through our website. They can also upload graphic files and track their job status. We are plan-

ning to expand our website to offer similar services to our rotogravure customers as well,” comments Akbar Zadeh. The company is planning to create an efficient R&D department to further develop and enhance its platemaking and cylinder engraving operations as well as for producing anilox rollers.

UAE: Federal Elections Revive Printing, Signage and Advertising Market Candidates spend up to 90 thousand dirham on billboard advertisements

paper’s share a major part of the advertising campaigns because of the high prices of paintings and signage in the emirate. According to a candidate, here the cost of putting 8 to 10 billboards for 10 days came to about 80 to 90 thousand dirham. The situation in Sharjah was no different, where candidates assigned the task of preparing the election campaign to private public relation and advertising companies. They took the task of processing the billboards, printing and distributing the flyers and coordinating conferences, advertisements and communications through social networking sites and other forms of media like the BlackBerry service. According to Ipsos, a research organisation based in France with offices in UAE, each candidate spends about 85 % of their campaign money to advertise on newspapers and other publications. The report says that during the first two weeks of September, about 392 ad campaigns that valued up to 8.1 million dirham were done by the candidates. Recording an increase of 5 to 10% of ad space in newspapers and publications, the average advertising cost of a single candidate ranged in between 350,000 dirham to one million dirham. The report also pointed out that the rates of

advertisement broadcasted in televisions declined during the month, unlike newspapers and print publications, which saw a big jump during the period. The report shows that 3 local TV stations acquired 32 ad campaigns in the month of August at a total cost of 930,000 dirham. Ipsos also reports growth in the spending of outdoor advertising and so far there has been around 659 outdoor advertisements done both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The National Organisation for election states that the expense spend on advertising campaigns by each candidate must not exceed two million dirham and obligates the candidate to disclose the source of his funds and obtain the approval of the management committee for budget allocation. The Federal Elections, which was held on the 24th of September, consists of an electoral college comprising 129,000 Emirati men and women, who are selected by the Rulers’ Courts. This Electoral College will vote to choose the 20 FNC members from the 468 candidates standing for election. The other 20 members of the 40 member council will be appointed by the Ruler. This election has 468 candidates including 85 women. The second in line, earlier the election was held in 2006.

The recently held National Assembly Elections in UAE had created more jobs in the printing presses and advertisement offices. The elections campaigns for the election, which was held on the 24th of September, have raised the competition between candidates, which in turn increased the demand to print billboards and flyers. As the elections are held only every five years, owners of the printing presses, advertising offices, calligraphers, public relation officers and other professionals were working hard to make most out of the seasonal activity. The printing presses worked on overdrive to meet the orders to be delivered on time and some presses worked over time to print the material for candidates. Candidates in the region used different means of advertisements including billboards, banners, advertisements in local newspapers and distribution of posters, advertising in local radio stations and the use of internet and social networking sites. Road side billboards offer another major form of advertisement, which state the candidate’s electoral propaganda, photograph and the programs proposed by the candidate. According to one of the candidate, it was observed that there was an increase in the printing of publications by at least 25% as compared to former times. There has also been a price rise in outdoor advertising because of the high fees imposed by the municipality on road side advertising. In Ras Al Khaimah, outdoor printing prices have raised sharply, which made candidates consider other means of advertising such as flyers, radio and television ads.

ME Printer June 2009

Following the deployment of Canon’s print and Variable Data Publishing (VDP) solutions, Al Borg Medical Laboratories, a private medical laboratory in the Middle East has reported a substantial improvement in its service delivery. The solutions to the facility included the imageRUNNER and imagePRESS printing devices. “Canon is committed to provide the highest standards of support to the industry, with a customer focused approach to both sales and service. Being able to provide industry leading technology for Egypt’s largest private medical laboratory is an achievement for Canon’s professional print segment. Canon’s products, solutions and professional services always strive to make its customers more productive and the tangible benefits experienced by Al Borg is testament to this,” said Naoshi Yamada, Deputy Managing Director, Canon Middle East.


According to Dr. Ahmed El Saifi, CEO, Al-Borg, improving resources, facilities and services has been a priority from its outset. “With thousands of patients requiring comprehensive medical analysis reports, we needed a system that will effectively manage our document management and printing requirements. Canon and ETCO came up with the perfect solution and it has allowed us to provide high quality personalised medical reports, while also streamlining our process and has cut costs substantially.” ETCO, Canon Middle East’s distributor in Egypt, proposed and implemented a VDP solution that enabled the laboratory to effectively streamline back end printing jobs including customised medical reports for individual patients. Prior to the implementation, the reports were printed in black and white and required

a lot of human intervention adding to the man hours. The solution entailed the installation of four units of imagePRESS C1+, two units of Canon’s imagePRESS C6000, two units of imageRUNNER ADVANCE PRO 9060 all integrated with a Canon VDP solution. ETCO provided customisation of the solution to match the laboratory’s specific requirements. With the system in place, Al Borg staff can provide high quality personalised medical reports for patients. “Our services for Al Borg include offering the scope of providing customised medical test reports for patients with information related to their diagnosed conditions, in addition to personalised advice on diet, medication, etc. This will enable them to boost their identity as a medical service provider, achieve more value from their customer communications and reduce their marketing costs,” said Ahmed Fathy, Professional Print Solutions Sales Director, Canon Middle East “Our Variable Data Publishing (VDP) solution automates the process of generating & printing the combined patient analyses in one booklet containing charts representing equivalent results, personalised newsletters from the lab related to the patient’s analysis as well as customised third party advertisements. This provides the much needed scope of enabling cost efficient personalised communications with customers,” concluded Fathy.

Curtains Drawing and Yet the Queue Gets Bigger Interactions, deals and business meetings filled the 3rd day of Paper Arabia.

The show once again proved to be a barometer of the paper industry in the region. During 3 days the stands and isles of the exhibition hall was filled with paper traders, printers and visitors in search of new products or to seal deals. The unanimous verdict on this year’s exhibition is that Paper Arabia continues to be a wonderful networking opportunity where companies can meet with their customers and make their presence felt. But that’s not all. The event is also a springboard to launch new products and concepts, whether it is a new cutting knife or a whole new concept for production of tissue.

The official visitor turnout is yet to be announced but by judging the crowded stands we are confident that it has surpassed the 6000 anticipated by the organizer. As confirmed by the exhibitors the event was well organized and as an added value to the exhibitors Al Fajer this year- in cooperation with ME Printer- decided to launch the show daily to communicate on a daily basis with the visitors and exhibitors on the exhibition floor. Paper Arabia once again has showed that one to one contact and personal relationships is still the strongest selling strategy. On the other hand the strong presence of best in the class paper manufacturers such as APP and the support of China National Household paper Industry Association added strength to the event. We expect that next year the prospects are brighter and more international. See you all in Paper Arabia 2012.

mittee of drupa since the last print trade fair, which was held in 2008. Commenting on his new role, Bernhard Schreier said, “I am delighted to accept the role as drupa President, particularly at this important and exciting time, when the print fair is going to be held. Drupa 2012 is a really crucial initiator for the print media industry and I will contribute significantly to the successful planning and organisation of it.” Schreier has been the Chairman of the Management Board of Heidelberg, since 1999.

Smart Solutions Underline Innovation Park Innovative product solutions and new technologies greet visitors at the park Followed by the success of the drupa innovation park (dip), drupa 2012 will offer more smart solutions on the print, advertising and online industry. Underlining the importance of drupa innovation park, Manuel Mataŕe, Director of drupa 2012 says, “This means that dip will be the point of reference and information hub for print buyers and innovative media producers from the print, advertising and online industry at the upcoming drupa.” The drupa innovation park in Hall 7 not only offers new and innovative companies an ideal presentation platform, it also provides new drupa target groups an access to complex topics in the area of media production. The different types of theme parks available at drupa include:-

The world tour will offer a view on the major trends in the industry that will be shown at drupa from the 3rd to 16th of May, 2012. “The future of printing lies very clearly in the areas of packaging, printed electronics (RFID) and digital print with personalisation,” says Dr. Markus Heering, Managing Director of the Association for Printing and Paper Technology in the VDMA. Talking about the latest trends he said, “Packaging printing will play an important role in the future. While, traditional markets are close to saturation, the print-

ing market in the emerging countries is developing very dynamically. In Asia, the volume has increased from 133 billion Euros to 168 billion Euros, in China alone it has doubled to 49 billion Euros. According to market research institutes, they estimate that the printing volume in China will increase to 70 billion Euros by 2014. Cautious optimism is reflected by the printing and paper industry in the run-up to drupa 2012. Once again, drupa will have many innovative developments coupled with successful business ideas for the printing industry.”

like Agfa, Canon, Kodak, Epson, Fujifilm, HewlettPackard, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Screen and Xerox can be found at halls 4, 5, 8a, 8b, 9 and 10. Other major attractions at drupa 2012 include:In halls 1 and 2 visitors can see Heidelberg with its network partners, at Hall 3 printing as well as its related materials and services can be found. Hall 6 will be the PrintCity that will have Manroland and other exhibitors. Visitors can see paper processing and packaging supplies production exhibitors at halls 10 to 12.

Colour Management Newspapers Infocus Re-Inventing


Press manufacturers pen down their opinion on the longevity and the impending trends in the newspaper industry

ME Printer October 2011

Some say that they are going to be extinct, while others say that it has still a long path to tread. The newspaper industry is in doldrums as socioeconomical factors lash their influence on the so called fourth estate. The last two years witnessed the slashing rates of advertising revenues and the dwindling numbers of classifieds. With employment opportunities going down and advertising revenues on a low profile, most of the newspapers around the world lost 91 % of their business last year. Many experts and futurists have written obituaries for the newspaper industry. They believe that factors like development of advanced digital platforms, the changing trends in advertising fund allocation, the cost involved in print production etc. has led to the thinning market of the print industry. According to a consumer research on newspapers done by Key Note, a market intelligence provider in UK, it was forecasted that the value of the newspaper market will decline till 2011 and that it will grow by 0.8 % by 2012. Talking about advertising revenues, earlier most of the local advertisers used newspapers for advertising but now with other platforms on the rise, advertising revenues are the most hit. Not only newspaper companies but printing system manufactures were also affected with the downturn. They all agree that rising paper costs and distribution costs are not the main factors that affect the industrial slow run rather the introduction of advanced technology into everyday life has pulled the rein on the industry. Even though this is the case worldwide, newspapers are not waiting for their timeline to end. They are picking up the current trends and learning to fight the digital revolution. Newspapers today are multimedia faceted, where journalists often juggle the roles of a reporter, photographer or sometimes even that of a micro blogger. Migrating to the digital


Infocus Re-Inventing Newspapers side, newspapers are in the run to find a place in the World Wide Web. Introducing newer apps for devices like iPads and iPhones and other tablet devices, newspapers are also striving to reach the masses. Other than digital applications, they have also introduced special inserts along with the print editions that cover topics like luxury living, automotive etc. Although researchers still claim that the majority of the readers still follow traditional print edition, it is evident that there is a steady shift to digital news rooms. With the popularity of sites like Facebook and Twitter on the rise, most of the younger generation search for interesting news and reports through these sites, making them an alternative to news platforms. Today

people demand faster and quicker updates and prefer electronic devices, which are cheaper when compared to the production cost involved in printing a newspaper. Major newspapers across the world are now adding more creativity to their content to attract advertisers and readers alike. Giving more prominent spaces to advertisers, they woo them with innovative designs and patterns. By launching newer sites they also try to extend their reach with diversifying topics and interactive columns and blogs. Another new trend seen is the reduction in number of pages and size of the newspaper. Readers have expressed their desire for coffee table editions that are more convenient to read and papers now give

equal importance to pictures and graphics in their pages. Earlier, writing to the editor was a weekly affair but now newspapers offer interactive sites that has proven to increase the readership rates. Cashing in on the popularity of their online sites, newspapers have introduced pay wall systems, which offer paid online content to users. Interestingly online researchers have found that users are willing to pay for the content. With the debate still going on about the long term profitability of the newspaper industry, ME Printer talked with some high notch printing system manufacturers to know their opinion on the longevity of the industry and what radical changes the industry will be facing in the near future.


Klaus Schmidt, Director Corporate Communications says that despite the rise of multimedia world-wide circulation of newspapers is still growing by 2 %

ME Printer October 2011



oenig & Bauer (KBA) based in Germany manufactures presses for the production of newspapers, packaging, books, bank notes etc. KBA markets its products across countries like Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Australia. Reviewing the current position of the newspaper industry, Klaus Schmidt, Director Corporate Communications, KBA Group said that the new economic realities have put the company’s focus on cost saving as the market for new machines have dropped dramatically by more than 50% in the recent financial crisis.

Talking about the renewed press designs adopted by KBA, he said that press designs are different for industrial countries and threshold countries as priorities of the users are different in both the countries. He informed that users in industrial countries like Germany demand for highly automated machines like the one’s with an automatic plate change, in order to shorten make-ready times and to save waste and reduce the labour involved. “We are well equipped to meet these varying needs with our compact presses like Cortina, one of which will soon start

functioning at Gulf News in Dubai and also our Commander CT, which is very successful in countries like Europe and North America. Where as users

press line with ten 4-high towers and 4 heatset dryers at Gulf News in Dubai etc. Ruling aside the possibilities of a merger, Klaus opined that though the capacities available are enormous, the market will decide in the longer run on who will survive and who will not. “I don’t see a merger between KBA and Manroland because together they would have a world market share of more than 70 per cent and antitrust authorities wouldn’t accept this dominant market position. Even if they would agree, the capital owners would have to finance the enormous costs of consolidation and the closing down of plants.” Recently all CEO’s of the German press suppliers declared their standalone strategy. Klaus explained that, “KBA has been the only press manufacturer posting profit in the early 2009 and 2010 without any state aid or the ongoing financial help of an insurance group as the main shareholder. So, why would we merge with a competitor, who has been posting losses since years? ” With drupa 2012 round the corner, KBA will introduce at the show, new products and processes for various market segments and also the first

digital inkjet web press produced by KBA in close cooperation with RR Donnelley, US based print and related service provider. “A personalised newspaper on an offset press with integrated digital inkjet heads from Scitex in Dayton (now Kodak Versamark) has already been demonstrated by KBA on a newspaper press. However, so far market for personalised or digitally printed newspapers is very small and less than 0.1% of the overall circulation. It’s costly and so far it has proved economical for very small circulations below 1,000 copies. I think, we will see more of it this time at drupa, though it is a niche area with only a handful of printers, most of them from big cities like London or Los Angeles, opting to print foreign newspapers for expatriates.” Expressing his view from a manufacture’s perspective on the longevity of newspapers, Klaus opined that newspapers have a future despite the rise of multimedia. He asserted that the world-wide circulation of newspapers is still growing by approximately 2 %, while the dwindling readership issues in highly-developed regions like Western Europe, North America or Japan is compensated by the growth in

ME Printer October 2011

in countries like India or China need less automation since the labour costs are lower there. They are price-driven in their decisions and need machines that are more reliable, while at the same time with fewer bells and whistles.” Detailing their restructuring process after the financial crisis, Klaus said that the restructuring plan for their web press manufacturing plants were based on the assumption that the annual demand for new newspaper and commercial presses would account to a maximum of 900mn Euros. “Before the financial crisis, the annual market volume was more than double, i.e. as high as 2 billion euros p.a. in normal years. This means that we would eventually have to downsize more than 1,000 people from our web press sites.” Klaus mentioned that KBA is in the middle of this downsizing process and that they will complete the whole process step by step. Explaining more on the restructuring process, he said that additional work will be added to their Wurzburg main plant for rotary presses with the help of their new business field digital inkjet and they will transfer one line of security presses from their Australian plant KBA- Mödling AG. “KBA has the widest product range of all press suppliers and is equipped to compensate the lack in demand in one market segment by other products. Despite the economic downfall, Middle East was one of the few regions in the world that showed promise and growth as far as printed and electronic media was concerned. Telling about their market presence in the region, Klaus said that Middle East has always been an important market for KBA sheetfed and web presses. KBA’s installations in the region includes a Rapida 185 with 12 printing, coating and drying units at Al Bayan in Dubai, a new 2 high speed 16pp commercial press Compacta 217 at King Fahd Complex for the Printing of Holy Quran in Medina, Saudi Arabia, a Cortina


Infocus Re-Inventing Newspapers readership in highly populated countries like India, China or Brazil. “However in the future newspapers will have to share advertising revenues and readership more and more with internet and mobile devices. Printed newspapers are not a growing business in the long run.” Citing free content as one of the reason for the growth of online and mobile media, he said that now more and more magazines and newspapers are putting their content behind the pay wall system and it is seen that the number of users willing to pay for the content are on the rise. Explaining the factors like rising print costs, fluctuating fuel charges, decrease of ad sales

revenues as normal market developments, he expressed that the only way for publishers to overcome these constraints would be to adopt cross media platform, which combines the strength of printed paper (with more background and credibility) with the reality of online medium. Detailing the survival instincts of newspapers supported by government aid, Klaus said that all forms of public aid or subsidies reduce the survival instinct of the organisation. He added that factors like regional influence, social standards, education, literacy and broadband infrastructure determine the popularity of digital sites and they differ from country to country as in Germany there

is no big difference between metropolitan and rural areas, while in India and Africa the difference is huge. Viewing the importance of newspapers in the society, Klaus said that, “The consumption of printed quality newspapers has to do a lot with the social standard, education, business etc. In the long run, the delegation of knowledge to Wikipedia will not be a clever move for intelligent people. Meanwhile, printed publications nowadays focus more on creativity and visual appeal. Reduction of size, glossy effects, less text and more pictures underline the fact that daily newspapers are on the way to become daily magazines.”


Pradeep Shah, Managing Director of Manugraph opines green solutions and economic press models as bet bets for newspaper printing

ME Printer October 2011



anugraph based in India are manufacturers of web offset presses. Going for a worldwide alliance, Manugraph in 2006 acquired 100% stake in the US based press manufacturing firm, Dauphin Graphic Machines Inc. (DGM). The company has also a significant international market presence. Pradeep Shah, Managing Director of Manugraph talking on the recent developments in the company said, “As far as the Indian economy is considered, witnessing growing print runs, we have launched the first Indian Double width machine, which is turning to be quite profitable. Growing literacy in

rural India has forced newspapers to come out with satellite editions and to fill this small circulation pockets, we have come out with the economic model M360, which aptly suits the need. The need for high quality printing with an affordable cost has lead to the model, Hiline Express with 3 form rollers, which is the best bet for semi commercial & newspaper printing.” About their reach and business in the Middle East region, Pradeep said that they distribute in the region through Mercongraphics and Dynagraph, who have a wide distribution network in the region. Asserting that there are

Pradeep Shah, Managing Director of Manugraph

quite a number of newspaper press manufacturers around, he believes that mergers need to happen for the survival of the industry. About their plans for drupa 2012, Pradeep said that they are planning to ad-

dress the newspaper market with low cost solutions along with space saving machines, which is an issue in many parts of the world. On the future of newspapers, he said, “Newspapers will need to address the niche market within each country and need to develop

like India, China, Brazil etc. The need for newspapers is not diminishing. We have to alter the way newspapers are published in highly developed countries.” Owing the online revolution to the emergence of 3G and 4G, Pradeep pointed out that areas

like improving press technology, controlling price per copy, wastage etc. will be the areas of concern for press manufacturers. Terming the popularity of digital content as the effect of urbanisation, he believes that the situation differs from country to country. Addressing the fears of the newspaper becoming a niche product, he said, “Consumables will always be working towards the future of green solution. All kinds of hazardous/waste material will be replaced by degradable bio output. In time to come many governments will need to address these issues worldwide. To overcome the threats of online content the newspaper group will have to equip themselves to reach out to all types of news activities so as to deliver the contents to readers in any format that becomes the news standard.”

Envisaging a fruitful year ahead, Gerd Finkbeiner, Chairman of the Executive Board, Manroland opined, “The print and media industry can plan

means as gloomy as it is often portrayed. Publishing houses and print companies tend to show restraint when it comes to investments and the market for printing presses is developing accordingly. Technological advances and the correspondingly increased productivity must also be kept in mind. If, for example, four new presses are installed to replace seven old ones and these four new presses offer an equal or even higher productivity, then it is clear that the number of presses in the market will decline. Concentration process and insolvencies are the main reason for the reduced number of print houses in the market. Explaining the reformative measures taken by the company, Gerd said that the executive board has developed a growth strategy, which was approved by the owners and it was decided that manroland will remain independent and enter newer markets, while producing innovative products, maintaining the high quality. Talking about the recent developments in the Middle East he said, “We closely follow regional trends. In Middle East, Dynagraph is our most valuable sales and service partner, who has helped us establish a strong


presence with both web offset and sheetfed offset presses and we also maintain a strong position in 0B and 3B format. To prove our commitment in the region, we have appointed a delegate to the region. Also, we have a web service hub jointly held with Dynagraph under the Manroland management. So, we are in a position to take advantage of the existing and future growth.” As mergers and acquisitions are the in things now, manroland has also considered many strategic options and has decided to take a direction that will enable them to grow from their core business independently. Talking about the plans for drupa 2012, Gerd said that their main aim as a press manufacturer is to generate added value to their customers. “Our philosophy is to promote and support Value Added Printing. We help our customers to differentiate in their fiercely contested market segments by offering them products and solutions with which they can print better, faster and at a lower cost than their competitors.” Gerd believes that the strength of print lies in product development. Talking about the future of newspapers he said, “Marketing is also very vital in printing industry. Generally, the

printing industry is very technology oriented and pays little attention to aspects like sales and marketing. My impression is that the printing industry lacks a healthy portion of selfconfidence. There is probably no other industry that has been talked and written down so consistently over the past few years. I am often baffled by the obsession of many journalists who pen down horror scenarios of their own profession. At the other end of the scale, there are others who wholly ignore new developments. I have even met well-established print entrepreneurs who bury their head in the sand in this respect. If I stop pursuing further development as an enterprise, then I will be hardly surprised if my customers go elsewhere. Industry initiatives here target properly founded opinions, free from both whitewashing and prophesies of doom. What we don’t need are expensive posters and advertising campaigns, which bring a great deal of joy to the agencies but to the company it brings too little return on a great investment.” Competing with new age media, print media has a lot of new challenges ahead. Discussing the challenges, Gerd opined that media usage and behaviour is changing, while the variety of media is increasing all the time. “As we know, print media still plays a major role in the media landscape, like a rock in the stormy electronic sea. Print media like newspapers and magazines are considered to be the most credible of all information sources. Nonetheless, print products must change even further to stay ahead in the battle.” Enumerating manroland’s services he said, “Here we offer numerous new technologies to produce print media even better, different and of course less expensively. We offer different forms of print enhancements for greater effects, hybrid printing for combining long run individualised print products or digital printing

be read in your own language without knowing English, computers or smart phones. In such cases, print will remain the preference over digital for still some time to come.” Gerd is of the opinion that printed information enjoys the confidence of the reader, as it is considered more credible than the information made available on the internet. He points out that the high credibility of print products also radiates in the advertising messages they transport. As newspapers worldwide are adopting innovative measures to lure in readers, Gerd thinks that today such reforms have elevated the position of newspapers to a standard that would have been unimaginable 15 years ago. “Newspapers have increased flexibility for both private and commercial advertisers. Products and prices can be changed at the last minute. Moreover, readers receive an attractive well structured and highly credible information medium. When we talk about future newspapers, quality and top journalism will continue to play a central role. Smaller newspaper formats will become even more popular due to the ease of handling, especially in younger reader groups. They will be more like magazines, both in respect of journalism and in graphic

design. The unique selling proposition of newspapers is that usually electronic media is used for researching and searching; while newspapers can be leafed through leisurely until one finds something new. Also besides using excellent newspaper quality, fluorescent, scented or metallic inks for example are real attention getters, especially when combined with surprising paper variants like coloured, transparent etc. In folding operations, ads can be put in super panorama format, in half covers, flying pages and booklets that would delight both readers and advertisers. Detachable response cards and barcodes provide interaction and dialogue and the new fold variants like the mini-plow are indicative of the newspaper’s ongoing development. New techniques like fast changeover using robots that automatically changes plates in the newspaper press (APL- Automatic Plate Loading) enables split editions, extended deadlines for ads, copy and editorial changes. Fast ad changes are also possible by using integrated inkjet system with inkjet heads installed at variable position in the newspaper press. This also enables ads to be produced for very short runs in papers, which is called micro zoning.”

for personalisation and justin-time production. The future of the industry surely lies in an intelligent mix of print, online and mobile. Our challenge is to offer technologies that place print media in the centre of communication with the possibility of linking print with other media via cross-media applications. Today things like imprinted barcodes for linking with smart phones or tablets have become very popular. This of course offers advertisers a new set of opportunities.” Governmental aid or support may affect the survival instinct of a newspaper depending upon the region it is based. According to Gerd, in high tech centres with multi cultural and multilingual populations, newspapers whether they are government owned or not have unlimited opportunities, while less developed regions may not attract providers of digital media or advertisers to that extent. Here such aids help to the survival of newspapers. Commenting on the influence of urbanisation on the growth of digital media, he said, “In less developed areas, it is by far not a common standard to have all the latest gadgets and gizmos. Here, newspapers play an important social role, where information can be shared and debated with your family and neighbourhood. Also, it can

Goss International is in strong position with Community

The modular design of these product families has enabled us to adapt them very quickly and cost effectively to satisfy changing market demands such as higher speed, new width and cut offs or heatset and UV options for example. The breadth of our product line and the fact that we manufacture presses in Asia, Europe and America adds to our advantage.

is especially promising for newspapers that specialises in more localised or targeted news.” Attributing free content, technology and also online journalism as obvious challenges for publishers and consumers in the print industry, Greg points out that journalism is a valuable product and as with any product the challenge is to monetize that value so that production and quality are sustainable. “There is considerable doubt that a model based exclusively on delivering free content through electronic devices could accomplish this. Instead, businesses that produce journalism should strike a balance between the expectations and requirements of their two revenue sources, readers and advertisers and seek ways to expand both bases. Increasing the range of cost effective media and distribution options is a more

promising strategy.” Talking about the government backed newspaper companies, Greg thinks that government backed publications are less supported than in the past, which will help to ensure a free and strong newspaper market in the region. Amid rising fears that electronic media would replace print, Greg thinks that there will be no such thing as elimination of the printed news. “The elimination of printed journalism would mean that information would be accessible only to those with the means to invest in relatively expensive electronic devices and to reinvest continuously to avoid obsolescence. It would mean those large populations in developed countries and even larger ones in developing countries who are unable/unwilling to keep pace with the evolving electronic technology would be left out.”

Currently we are staying close to the market with our Goss team and with a locally respected network.” Explaining the company’s future path, he said, “We have already established a clear path forward for Goss International with the Shanghai Electric Group, who is a strong industrial owner with a long term perspective and commitment to the print sector. So, now we are more focused on technology, value and execution rather than on mergers, acquisitions or ownership structure. Right now every supplier in the world is seeking for an ownership structure that will give them long term stability and provide its customers and stakeholders’ confidence. Therefore consolidations between press and auxiliary suppliers would not be surprising.” Calling drupa 2012 as an important opportunity to review new innovations, explore ideas and extend relationships, Greg opined that they would look forward this time to welcome a significant number of printers and publishers from the Middle East. “Our presence at drupa will reflect our long-term commitment to print and our strength as a technology and industry leader.” Ruling aside the death scenario of newspapers, Greg commented that printed newspapers will remain vital and viable, provided publishers are ready to invest and evolve both their products and their business models, to stay competitive. “We believe that the move towards more appealing products and formats as well as towards commercial-like business models that allow publishers to maximise their investments in more advanced and competitive production platforms will accelerate. As a press supplier, we’re focused on continuously developing technology that makes production faster, easier and less expensive.

Sameh Abdallah, Deputy Editor, Al Ahram newspaper talks about the post revolution changes in newspapers in Egypt


Revolution was an inspiration for many Egyptians. Their passion for free speech and freedom was visible throughout the days when thousands gathered at Tahrir Square to oust their dictator leadership of 30 years. The fervour of people and their expressions were most expressed through newspapers and online sites. Egypt saw Wael Ghonim, a Google executive through Facebook, from where he walked into the masses to become the face of youth revolution. It’s visible that the condition in Egypt is not what it used to be. Media and press, which were erstwhile controlled by the government, are now facing a much more relaxed situation. Viewing this, we approached Al Ahram newspaper in Egypt to know how the revolution has affected the newspaper industry, the latest trends that they see and the future of the industry in the region. Al Ahram, which was established in 1875, is one of the most widely circulated Egyptian daily. The newspaper, which was controlled by the ousted government is published daily from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE and is distributed throughout Egypt and the Gulf Region. The newspaper has also an international edition, known as Al Ahram al

digital media to keep pace in a long run. Keeping this in view, he said that Al Ahram has already increased its digital

content across a number of general and specialised news sites, while paying attention to the development of the paper version of the newspaper. Sameh says that new generation devices like IPad or Tablet PC’s will not pose a threat to the print version, as they are not as widely popular and accessible by the general public. Confirming the popularity of newspapers with digital content, he said that digitalization has only increased the popularity of newspapers. The question of credibility of news is often the most asked when it comes to online sites. Sameh thinks that personal sites and blogs may not be always professional and they can be a threat regarding to the credibility of information that they display. “At newspapers, we make sure that the information is correct and comes from credible sources. With the passage of time,

readers will realize that resorting to a trusted source, such as newspapers is the only way to get healthy information.” Contributing the growth of digital media as a positive sign, Sameh thinks that the emergence of advanced technology has added to the advantage of newspaper websites and pulls more young readers to their paper and sites. He thinks that online discussion forums and chat rooms in newspaper sites are going to attract more readers and will increase the popularity of the newspaper sites. “To be successful in any given condition, newspapers must rely and focus only on the quality of news. If the paper offers in-depth news, analysis of events, as well as more attention to local news, then readers would be more interested to buy and read that paper. Improved cooperation between various newspapers and reducing the cost of print and distribution would help the industry to overcome the rising price factor.” Sameh thinks that improved freedom of the press would help the media to be more expressive, especially in communities that do not respect freedom of press. “By increasing freedom of speech, the demand for the medium will increase but that is not the only factor as far as demand is concerned. As mentioned before, the papers must increase their share of local content, which directly relates to the interest of readers to have a wider readership.” Opining that editorial policy and age of the reader

They also have an English website called Ahram online, which sees 470,000 visitors per day. They print about 800,000 copies a day. ME Printer talked with Sameh Abdallah, Deputy Chief Editor, Al Ahram to know his views on the newspaper industry in the region. On the recent events in the region, he said that the current political events and revolutions in the Arab nation have led to the growth of online journalism at the expense of print media. “The impact of a revolution on newspapers may differ depending on the country in which it has taken place. For example in Libya, the country suffered a lot under the former regime and now following the revolution, the press has much more freedom. While in Egypt, the biggest challenge was for the newspapers as they were primarily associated with the regime and the newspapers had to undergo a real transformation from being a spokesperson for the regime to being the spokesperson for the public. During the revolution, digital newspapers attracted more readers through its constantly updated status and other attractions like multimedia and direct interaction platforms, while newspapers were still following the traditional and stereotyped way of presenting the news and events.” Speaking about the intrusion of digital media, he said that print has to integrate with

determine the popularity of a news podium, Sameh thinks that young people mostly prefer Internet. Expressing his opinion on government backed newspapers; he says that most of the newspapers adopt an editorial policy that relies mostly on publishing the news of government policies and directives, which keeps the reader at bay. Sameh says that regions and

not readers adapt faster to the technology. “Changes will be according to the progress of the society, for example Japan will be the first to adapt to the changes and Somalia will be the last.” Digital medium has grown in popularity owing to its low cost and to keep up with it, newspapers must adopt new editorial policies along with the integration of web sites. Sameh thinks that

introducing paywall system might not be that successful and only some classified information like stock exchange news could be put behind the wall for sale. Talking about the recent developments in Al Ahram, Sameh said that they have developed their human resource capacity and have changed their editorial policies and are now focusing more on the e-edition print.

Jacob Mathew, President WAN-IFRA rates the possibilities and scenario of the newspaper industry

ME Printer October 2011

Jacob Mathew, Executive Editor and Publisher of the Malayala Manorma Group, is the first Indian to be appointed as President of WANIFRA. He is also the trustee of the Press Institute of India and also on the Asian Board of INMA.


Being the first Indian and the second Asian to be appointed as the President of WAN-IFRA, how do you rate the newspaper industry in the Asian and the Middle East region? In India, for short and medium terms, the newspaper business is attractive. In China and India, there is a growth in paid circulation. It is difficult to say anything certain about the long term prospects in the traditional newspaper. The recent economic slowdown has had an impact on media in the Middle East. Because of the new media growth, especially the increased mobile connectivity, there may be a different approach globally in the years to come. There are 5.3 billion mobile subscribers today out of the 6.9 billion population globally. 15 million new connections are added per month in the world, out of which 6 million are in the Asia Pacific region. But at the end of the day, it is to be seen how one makes money. However, I strongly believe that if there is good content and if there is a free press, there will be a

healthy growth in the print media. Even a proper development of a nation can take place if there is a free press. In our region or in many countries, media operates with indirect restrictions. In your capacity as President, what will be your entitled duties in WANIFRA? As the President, I have to ensure that there is continuity in WAN-IFRA activities. WAN-IFRA is committed to a free press and WAN-IFRA is looking at new strategies to focus on emerging technologies. It helps traditional newspapers adapt to the latest technological innovations. The media industry today must look at things differently in order to stay relevant and the print media plays a major role in the media matrix. WAN-IFRA is giving much emphasis on research because soaring costs is

a major challenge when compared to the paperless media. WAN-IFRA also has plans to scale up innovations in order to stay relevant. The Board and WAN-IFRA team gives importance in the area of press freedom, media development and young readership development. Will the burgeoning prices of newsprint and its availability affect the production of newspapers in the future? Manufacturers of newsprint and buyers of the same commodity have to come to some equilibrium sooner or later, each has to make money to survive. Currently due to low prices many mills have been mothballed, when prices improve these may reopen. Newsprint consumption in the US has crashed and the installed capacity is currently more than the demand. So even with growth in some geographies, supply can always be scaled up. All are in agreement that the violent swings we saw in the past are not helpful to either side. How far has online revolution and the development of networked tablets influenced the newspaper industry? Technology is changing at a very fast pace and I think newspapers have re-

sponded well to Tablets. It is a matter of time before people pay for content on these tablets. As connectivity improves across the world, Tablets will definitely help newspapers. With some experts making their opinion on the timeline for the extinction of newspapers in the world, do you think that the newspaper industry will have a look back to gain its diminishing popularity? The death of newspapers has been propagated for long. We have seen the industry going through tough times in the West and it is little different in Asia and parts of South America. The newspaper industry will have to be innovative to survive. It all boils down to the content that is exclusive to the reader. Tensions and upheavals have rocked the Middle East region, where online networking sites and social forums have played a key role in triggering these revolutions. Do you think that these interactive medium lessen the popularity of newspapers in general? What suggestions do you have to counter this mass appeal? Today a free media is not restricted to print alone any more. The incidents in the Middle East region clearly indicate that freedom of expression can take an unexpected and unprecedented route if there are any restrictions on traditional media. Print media strategies should address the changing world and should cater to the needs of the audience. Today’s youth is the future and they mastermind many changes. However, the credibility factor of the print media is high and if we work towards convergence of all platforms, the print media will play a significant role. Newspapers have also not missed the trend that small is beautiful. Do you think that gradually newspapers will shift completely to digital medium? In the West, this may happen earlier but in Asia it will take some more time. Network connectivity and affordability will play a large part in this change to a complete digital medium. However, there will always be an audience for the print; it might be different from the audience of today. The important aspect to note is that print has a unique appeal and it will continue.

ME Printer October 2011

Larry Kilman is the Deputy CEO and Executive Director of Communications and Public Affairs for the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA). Kilman has been associated with the World Association of Newspapers before its merger with IFRA, since 1998 and has witnessed the evolution of the newspaper business. Before that he had a long career in the news business, notably with the Associated Press and Agence France- Presse.


Has the rising cry of imminent doom created a furore in newspaper organisations or do they think that there is no such thing as the end of print? This issue of ME Printer, we have included the opinion of press manufacturer’s on the longevity of the newspaper industry. To know the two sides of a coin, we caught up with Larry Kilman of WAN-IFRA to know the view of newspaper organisations and what

Larry Kilman, Deputy CEO of WAN-IFRA vouches that newspapers have a bigger audience than ever before

they say on the digital shift of print. World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) along with IFRA, the research and service organisation for the news publishing industry represents more than 18,000 publications, 15,000 online sites and 3,000 companies in more than 120 countries. The organisation aims to protect online copyright issues, maintains open coverage of news worthy events and also helps newspaper companies ‘go green’. Given below is the extract of the interview held with Larry Kilman, Deputy CEO and Executive Director of Communications and Public Affairs, WAN-IFRA. Fast and busy lifestyle, has it increased the demand for tablet or digital newspapers? Certainly. People want news and information in a jiffy. Digital and tablet platforms provide news and information, whenever and wherever they are available. But print isn’t obsolete because of this, print and digital are compatible. Print has many attributes attached to it. Readers can analyze and select the content to be read instead of searching through endless content to read what is essential. Do you think that the mushrooming blogs and sites are a threat

to the existence of credible news sources? Blogs are never going to replace traditional sources of news. For the most part, bloggers, like everyone else, rely on traditional news sources for most of their content. There is a reason for this, the traditional sources, particularly newspapers, are the only news sources with reporting teams and resources that provide credibility. Newspaper brands have never been more valuable than they are today; they provide a guarantee to the readers and users that the information is credible and accurate. Is it technology or free content that appeals more to online readers? Technology is driving a lot of developments in the mobile news world. With the increase of speed, the dissemination of news through online platforms is made more appealing. Yes, free news is certainly appealing too, though we can now see that free news isn’t a sustainable business model. Advertising alone doesn’t always give the returns for the costly process of gathering and distributing news and information. Going online, has it helped to increase the reach of newspapers? Yes, online newspapers have increased the popularity of newspapers in general. Newspapers have never

had a bigger audience than they have today. Now regional or local newspapers can be accessed outside of traditional circulation areas. This is a boon to many, who have moved away from where they grew up or are living in a country other than their own. Newspapers are opening discussion forums and chat rooms for their online readers? Do you think this step will increase the popularity of the news medium? Social media is just another distribution channel for news and information. Yes newspapers are rapidly joining the social media world. The speed with which they are doing this reflects a profound change in our industry. Newspapers were once thought to be slow enough to adapt to changes but now they are among the first to explore the benefits and opportunities that new media platforms presents. Fluctuating news print costs, increase of fuel charges, decrease of ad sales revenue etc. affect the smooth functioning of newspapers, what reforms do you suggest would make newspapers overcome such constraints? I wouldn’t say these normal business challenges will threaten the survival of newspapers; such situations had always been around. In terms of reforms, relief from value added taxes, environmental charges, advertising restrictions and other measures would ease the journey of newspapers ahead.

not for profit organisations and are usually supported or backed by governmental bodies. Do you think that this will affect the basic survival instinct of a newspaper? The region would benefit from conditions in which an independent press can thrive. Those conditions are largely absent, so newspapers have taken other business models that rely on things other than market forces for survival. The revolution makes it clear that much will need to be done to create the conditions in which an independent press can sustain itself economically. Is urbanisation the factor that has led to the increased popularity of digital sites? I don’t think the essential question is urban vs. rural but the question of access. And it also isn’t a question of preferences between digital and print as most people prefer to have both. They access them at different times in different places. With consumables becoming a scarcity, will newspapers become an expensive commodity in the future? I don’t think so. Newspapers still continue to be far more profitable than digital and the situation won’t change

in the near future. Newspapers are certainly changing but I don’t think they will ever be considered a luxury item. You can still get a newspaper for the price of a cup of coffee. How much is creativity adding to the longevity of newspapers? I think it is a common misconception that the survival of newspapers is threatened. Sure newspapers are changing but they are not dead or dying and will continue to grow. They will remain a valuable and viable source of news on all platforms. Sure, creation and innovation certainly defines the industry today as market forces are pushing newspapers to adapt to constant changes. In terms of print, newspapers are experimenting with new inks, unusual and eyecatching advertising, new formats, better paper etc. Digital innovations get much of the attention but print is also benefiting from creativity and innovation. What is your opinion on the pay wall system? Do we have to pay for information, in the future as now more and more online newspapers are putting their articles and stories behind the pay wall system? I don’t think that there is any choice; digital platforms will never replace the revenue lost to print. So, new models need to be found to provide the journalism that the society demands. I think there is a growing understanding on the importance of this. As representative of the global press, what measure where taken by WAN-IFRA to support the organisations? Among other functions, WAN-IFRA serves as a network and a source of information exchange among newspaper companies internationally. Through conferences, study tours, training, online forums and other initiatives, we’ve been providing news organisations with best practices that helped them work in difficult economic times. In addition to these conferences and events, WAN-IFRA represents the global publication industry in all international discussions of interest to the press and defends and promotes its interests. We work to create and sustain the conditions that allow independent press to succeed as a business. We also have a number of projects and initiatives to aid media development worldwide.

ME Printer October 2011

It is seen that censorship of news has led people to rely more on online medium? Do you think that improved press freedom would increase the demand for newspapers in the region? Censorship is not only hurting newspapers but the societies in general. If newspapers fail to fulfil their role as an independent watchdog against corruption, then it would lead to incompetence and other ills, which eventually will lead to the economic and cultural slow down of the country. A free press would certainly benefit the society and would result in increased readership. So, credible news is always necessary to attract a loyal audience. You can see from the success of blogs and other online sources in the Arab world that the lack of freedom of expression has resulted in many turning to anonymity that online platforms can provide.

With the recent developments and the volatile situation in the Middle East, what was the most relied or sought after news podium, was it newspapers or digital content? By records, it would have to be traditional source of news because majority of the Middle East population doesn’t have regular access to digital content. There has been much attention focused on the role of Twitter and Facebook in the revolution but this has been much exaggerated. There are about like some 14,000 Twitter accounts in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen combined compared with the 83 million people in Egypt alone. Though traditional sources of news are often controlled, they still remain the main source of news for much of the population. We hope the democratic revolution will result in the growth of the independent press in the region. Newspapers in the region are mostly

Future looks good for Paper Arabia

The official Show Daily Brought to you by

Satish Khanna - General Manager، Al Fajer Information and Services

Curtains Drawing and Yet the Queue Gets Bigger Interactions, deals and business meetings filled the 3rd day of Paper Arabia. With curtains drawing on the 4th edition of Paper Arabia, the exhibition hall was packed, with an even longer queue waiting to get inside. The show once again proved to be a barometer of the paper industry in the region. During 3 days the stands and isles of the exhibition hall was filled with paper traders, printers and visitors in search of new products or to seal deals. The unanimous verdict on this year’s exhibition is that Paper Arabia continues to be a wonderful networking opportunity where companies can meet with their customers and make their presence felt. But that’s not all. The event is also a springboard to launch new products and concepts, whether it is a new cutting knife or a whole new concept for production of tissue.

The official visitor turnout is yet to be announced but by judging the crowded stands we are confident that it has surpassed the 6000 anticipated by the organizer. As confirmed by the exhibitors the event was well organized and as an added value to the exhibitors Al Fajer this year- in cooperation with ME Printer- decided to launch the show daily to communicate on a daily basis with the visitors and exhibitors on the exhibition floor. Paper Arabia once again has showed that one to one contact and personal relationships is still the strongest selling strategy. On the other hand the strong presence of best in the class paper manufacturers such as APP and the support of China National Household paper Industry Association added strength to the event. We expect that next year the prospects are brighter and more international. See you all in Paper Arabia 2012.

Paper Arabia 2011 is in its 4th year and it has already established itself as a sought after show in the Middle East region. Not only regional but international exhibitors have also developed interest in the show. Discussing about the show and the future prospects held by the annual paper event, Satish Khanna, General Manager, Al Fajer Information and Services said that the show has been a huge success and has once again established itself as the one stop destination for paper industry in the region. This is your 4th Paper Arabia Exhibition, when you look back at the history of the show to what extent do you think you have achieved your goal in organising a top class trade show? We are very much satisfied with the visitor turnout on the very first day of the 4th edition of Paper Arabia. Over the years, Paper Arabia has proven that this is the only exhibition in the Middle East for sourcing any products from the paper industry. As an established paper exhibition in the region, I am sure that Paper Arabia has fulfilled the theme for which it was developed. What is the visitor turnout you are expecting? We are expecting more than 6,000 visitors to hit the stands this year. Today we have seen visitors all over from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran, India, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Sudan,

Kenya, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka etc. This year we have registered around 150 exhibitors in the show. Based on the feedbacks of exhibitors and visitors and your own experience what impact do you think Paper Arabia has had on paper trade in our region? Over the years, the colour of the show has been high in the region. It’s the 4th year and big shots like APP have come forward to sponsor the event. For the first time, APP has come up to be our

Over the years, the colour of the show has been high in the region principal sponsor, while China National Household Paper Industry Association (CNHPIA) is the supporting sponsor of the event. This shows the importance that Paper Arabia holds in the region and the interest of companies to exhibit in the show. It seems that there are less European exhibitors this year due to deep recession in Europe, does it mean that Asian paper manufacturers and local suppliers are now playing a much bigger role in filling the exhibition halls? No, I won’t say so. We have seen participation both


from the European and Asian side. The thing is that the Middle East market has always been influenced more by the Asian dealers and suppliers. Yes it is a fact that relatively there is a lesser participation from Europe this year due to the slowdown but that does not mean that Asian manufacturers have filled the halls. Rather, the show has expanded and grown with over the years. Is there any special focus in this year’s event? This year the focus is on disposable and household paper products. With the burgeoning demand for tissue and household paper products in the region, we thought it apt to focus on this area. Also, the Chinese pavilion this year is much bigger compared to previous years and we have the China National Household Paper Industry Association as our supporting sponsor. Some believe a dedicated Paper exhibition in our region is not a good idea and it should be part of more comprehensive graphic arts exhibition, do you agree? No, I don’t agree. We can see that over the years, more and more tissue and paper manufacturers have mushroomed in the region. Paper Arabia is now an established show and it has helped to acquire new technologies and new products into the region. It has helped the industry to grow and develop. This exhibition is a must attend event and must not be

part of any other graphic arts exhibition. Do you have any plan to broaden the scope of Paper Arabia? Plans are there to jointly work with an international paper forum from next year. We are still working out on the proposal and we will disclose the details once the idea is finalized.

How important environmental issues has become for paper industry in our region? When compared with other regions, environmental issues are lesser here. Though there is a demand for more recycled paper and products, consumers and companies don’t specifically demand for environmentally certified products. As an organiser how do you help your exhibitors to get the most out of the show? Our extensive promotional activities fulfil the business dreams of our exhibitors. We give ample advertisement, in and outside the region, through press conferences, advertisements in magazines, radios; televisions etc and thereby give the companies a much wider audience. This way they are getting a global market and better business.
