[click for larger pic]
Came home today to find the first issue of Al-Watan Daily english edition. Al-Watan dumped Daily Star Kuwait earlier in February after it got slack response from subscribers in Kuwait. First impressions puts Al-Watan Daily in interesting category. Todays edition had business supplement and International Herald Tribune. Overall the paper is somewhat similar to Kuwait Times in terms of amount of content. Lets see if Al-Watan can bank on its Arabic version and marketing strategy to push across Al-Watan as a competitior to Kuwait Times and Arab Times. By the way we are getting this paper in lieu of Daily Star Kuwait, so there are no additional charges at this stage for us.
