Timely launch for new Arabic business website
Dubai-based publisher Mediaquest Corp has launched Kazdar.com, an Arabic language, business news portal that offers a different slant on the issues of the day.
Kazdar.com takes an unflinching look at the failures and successes of corporations, governments and national economies. As it reports the key developments and decisions, it assesses not just the financial implications, but the social ones too.
â€œThanks to recent economic events, we understand better than ever before that business is not just red and green numbers listed on screens in the stock exchange,â€ says Julien Hawary, Co-CEO of Mediaquest Corp.â€œNor is it a matter that only concerns big companies, businessmen, and governments. Business influences all aspects of our daily life. We created Kazdar.com because people in the region want to know more about business, about how it is affecting their daily lives, and about those people that are shaping the economy.â€
As well as providing the latest news from the economic and business spheres, Kazdar.com provides a Web 2.0 interface, allowing readers to interact with the site and each other. They can suggest new topics and upload content, including their own profiles, which will open a window for them to network with other readers.
â€œKazdar.com is for Arabs who want to know the real â€˜Who, What, When, Where and Whyâ€™ behind the business stories influencing their world,â€ says Yazan Neme, managing editor. â€œWe have created a platform that is user-friendly, with direct, accessible and entertaining editorial content. And through our honest and independent reporting we offer a fresh and unique perspective to our readers.â€
Kazdar.com aims to be to the point, eschewing the complicated jargon so typical of business reporting, while maintaining the highest journalistic standards.
As well as business and social issues, readers can also use Kazdar.com to keep up to date on the latest celebrity news from the region, and the rest of the world.
