Daily News Egypt has become the most favourable newspaper among the country’s elites, thinkers, politicians, and economists. Over the past 18 years, which is the age of the paper, Daily News Egypt has succeeded in setting new standards in the Egyptian press market.
It presented a model that is now followed by many in the market, through the credibility it built in its reporting. This credibility springs from the separation between its editorial line and advertising in the newspaper, as well as its impartiality in delivering news and information, without any bias in favour of any particular trend or current.
That’s why Daily News Egypt shed light on success stories in Egypt, at a time when people are looking for inspiration.
