MUMBAI: Reuters and BTVi have joined hands to bring financial and business news from across the globe to Indian viewers. Under the partnership, BTVi will have access to Reuters TV studios in key financial centres across the globe.

“Reuters News Agency is the world’s largest news provider. BTVi will leverage our global strength to bring global and financial news to their ever growing audience on a daily basis from our studios around the world and support their coverage of key global events” said Reuters SVP for sales and content solutions Munira Ibrahim.

Reuters and BTVi propose to further expand the scope of the partnership in the days ahead. “We hope to build on this partnership in the future as we believe there is an unparalleled opportunity in India to create dynamic and engaging content that will appeal to the countries affluent and internationally-minded population”, Ibrahim added.

"As the consumption of information changes rapidly, BTVi is expanding into the digital universe to reach even larger audiences through path-breaking formats of news gathering. After many years of bringing Indian viewers content on business, the stock markets and the economy, BTVi is ushering in new content offerings for the business news space in India. Over the years, the Indian news ecosystem has evolved significantly and the new consumer wants an intelligent take on developments, delivered in the most intuitive yet dynamic form,” said BTVi executive editor Siddharth Zarabi.

Commenting on the partnership, BTVi COO Monica Tata said "Our country is one of the fastest growing economies in the world with large and growing business audience. And together with Reuters, we are confident of strengthening our leadership position further by delivering more value to our increasingly sophisticated business audience through great business news content on a real time basis.”
