The Bangkok Post has joined the Wall Street Journal in a three-year partnership to help bring some of the world's most insightful articles and analysis to local readers.

Suthikiati Chirathivat, chairman of Bangkok Post Public Company Limited, said the partnership solidifies the Post's commitment to delivering the best news and information to readers.

"The Bangkok Post is Thailand's oldest and most respected newspaper. With this partnership, we are now joining hands with one of the most established newspapers in the world," he said.

From next month, the Bangkok Post will publish a page of curated articles and features from the Wall Street Journal every Monday to Saturday in the business section.

Subscribers of the print and e-paper editions of the Bangkok Post will also be given the opportunity to sign up for a digital membership to the Wall Street Journal under a special promotion.

Jonathan Wright, global managing director for Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal, said he was delighted to have the Bangkok Post join 44 other leading publishers around the world that are in partnership with the Wall Street Journal.

"Aligning with the most widely read English-language newspaper in the very vibrant market that is Bangkok positions both of us well for future growth," Mr Wright said at the contract signing ceremony in Bangkok.

Worachai Bhicharnchitr, vice- chairman of the Bangkok Post, said the collaboration brings together two brands that share similar values in terms of quality journalism.

"This partnership reinforces the Bangkok Post's long-standing brand image as the 'world's window to Thailand', " Mr Worachai said.

"The partnership with the Wall Street Journal demonstrates the Bangkok Post's commitment to providing the highest-quality journalism and delivering the best service to our readers."
