The Independent, one of the leading English dailies of Bangladesh, is a perfect example of how a single product can change an industry.
Launched on March 26, 1995, The Independent is the first four-colour, 16-page daily in Bangladesh, and also the first newspaper to use imported newsprint.
The newspaper introduced a 32-page weekend magazine for the first time in Bangladesh, and within two years.
The paper was also the first to introduce a web edition in 2010, re-branding itself with a stronger promise towards fast and authentic news coverage.
The Independent offers its readers a comprehensive coverage of the day’s events, in-depth news and analysis of current affairs, maintaining a completely unbiased point of view and neutrality. Journalists at The Independent are always ready to give readers a clear understanding of events and happenings with their background and implications. A group of experienced and energetic photojournalists keep their focus on every 'happening' to click and bring pictures that capture the true essence of daily occurrences.
Owned by Beximco, the leading industrial conglomerate of the country, The Independent has earned much acclaim for its innovative and tech-sawy approach and its thrust for continuous improvement.
