The World Printers Forum within WAN-IFRA promotes the printed newspaper. Its mission is to serve WAN-IFRA members in promoting and sustaining the printed newspaper business and technology through collaborative research and development, global exchange of experience, creating new standards, implementing environmental guidelines, developing new strategies, and fostering innovations.

All these years, numerous reports have been published on the latest trends and critical developments in the newspaper industry and those reports gave all the necessary inputs to implement the findings in the business and process.

This recent COVID-19 is unprecedented and has created a deep impact in every industry. To be resilient to the impact, and to work from ground zero, we thought, some of our old reports would give you some stimulus.

We have planned to send one selected report every day, for 30 days, excluding weekends, from our repository to the top management and a selected group of executives from our member companies. In the email, you will find a link to the report page where members can download it by providing their email id.

In the email, you will also see a link to this page. This page will be updated regularly with the report link being sent to you over email. Anytime, or after 30 days, you can visit this page to find all the reports.

NOTE: Printed copies could be arranged on a chargeable basis.
