It's not just because I've just been there and have it in my mind: almost everything I've opened this morning has had something about India. This includes, with a publishing focus:
- Crain's B2B online reports from ABM's Spring Meeting in Naples, Florida. Chandu Nair, the president of Scope e-Knowledge Center, reportedly told attendees that “ABM members have a big role to play” in developing business content in India. The industry is poised for growth.”
- Meanwhile, over at FIPP, as they gear up for next week's World Magazine Congress in Beijing, the World Magazine Update newsletter points to a story on their website regarding exchange4media's plans "to provide comprehensive information on the Indian magazine industry including resources, players, their standing in the industry, and the nature of advertising done in various magazine products". The report, to be titled ‘Ready Reckoner’ will, the FIPP story says, be released along with the May 2007 issue of Pitch, an e4m publication.
