The Express Group has entered into a content partnership with the Financial Times in India. The agreement, formally announced on May 3, 2011, by Shekhar Gupta, Group Editor-in-Chief, The Express Group, will soon see FT content carried on branded pages in The Financial Express and The Indian Express.

In a prepared statement, Shekhar Gupta said, “Our partnership with the Financial Times grows from the Express Group’s commitment to our very demanding readers and to their need for content defined by excellence in insight and understanding of today’s rapidly changing world, its politics and its markets.”

Meanwhile, Angela Mackay, Executive Director, Asia Pacific at the Financial Times, added, “The Financial Times, with its unparalleled access to world leaders, is a must-read for the global business community.
