GSMA Launches News Service for Chinese Mobile Industry








The GSMA today announced that it has launched a new Chinese-language edition of its hugely successful Mobile Business Briefing news service. The free, weekly Chinese-language edition of Mobile Business Briefing covers global industry developments and is aimed at the growing number of companies in the China region that are participating in and influencing the world’s mobile market.

Justin Springham, Managing Editor of the GSMA’s news services, said: “The English-language version of Mobile Business Briefing has already achieved a high readership in China, but we felt that the market’s influence on the global stage merited a dedicated Chinese-language version. Our new service will ensure the mobile industry’s biggest developments will reach the widest possible audience.”

The Chinese service will build on the phenomenal success of the English-language version of Mobile Business Briefing ( Launched in 2008, the daily Mobile Business Briefing service has attracted nearly 35,000 ‘opted-in’ subscribers, making it one of the leading news sources for the global mobile industry.

The GSMA has many member companies in China, and hosts its Mobile Asia Congress in Hong Kong, China, with the 2010 Mobile Asia Congress taking place 17-18 November. The Chinese-language edition of Mobile Business Briefing is set to strengthen the range of services the GSMA provides for the region.
