The Business Times gets major makeover in print and online

SINGAPORE - Financial news here will be getting a makeover with a refreshing change in The Business Times (BT).

From Wednesday, articles in the financial daily of the Singapore Press Holdings will be organised by industry, instead of by geography.

Some of the sectors covered will be Real Estate, Banking and Finance, and Energy and Commodities.

A new Government & Economy section will cover major global political and economic news events, and their implications.

BT also boasts a new website, businesstimes.com.sg, which will carry breaking news as well as all stories from the print edition. The website will be easy to read even on smartphones, and will include a new lifestyle portal, Small and Medium Enterprises section, and three new blogs by BT journalists.

BT's iPad, iPhone and Android smartphone apps have also been refreshed, and include a new search feature.

The BT All-in-One package offers subscribers access to all editions of BT (print, website, iPad and smartphone apps) and allows them to read BT on up to four mobile devices, concurrently. Subscribers will have full access to daily premium content and will be able to read from a seven-day archive of BT's news.

Subscription plans remain the same. Those interested may visit btsubscribe.com.sg to sign up. Readers may also call 6538-3838 or e-mail btocs@sph.com.sg. The customer service hotline is manned from 8.30am to 6.30pm on Mondays to Fridays.
