ENEX has taken a huge step in its expansion into the Middle East by securing Al Arabiya as the organisation’s 54th member. Al Arabiya News Channel was launched in 2003 and quickly became one of the leading sources of news for Arabs across the region seeking credible and reliable information about the Middle East.
Al Arabiya runs an extensive global network of correspondents and reporters to provide its audiences with the latest updates, scoops, interviews, and exclusives. With nearly 30 offices around the world and large-scale presence in several key countries such as Iraq, the Palestinian territories, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and Yemen; Al Arabiya enjoys a competitive edge in providing on-ground, first hand coverage of major events of relevance to its audience and the world at large.
Adrian Wells, Managing Director of ENEX said: ‘’The Middle East’s politics and conflicts are of huge significance to every country and newsroom around the world. It is vital that ENEX is represented in the region and we couldn’t wish for a more established and significant partner.” Over the last 3 years ENEX has been rapidly developing it’s global network of partnerships. ENEX is already represented in the Middle East through its Kurdish partner, Rudaw, which is based in Erbil, Northern Iraq. However, traditionally the cooperative has been less well represented in the region and in Africa and Asia. Those gaps now being addressed.
