Newspaper publishing is Nikkei's core business. Total print and digital subscribers of the Nikkei reach over 3 million, plus more for its three specialized papers, Nikkei Business Daily, Nikkei MJ (Marketing Journal), Nikkei Veritas (financial weekly). The Nikkei is known as the must-read paper for Japanese professionals with extensive coverage of Japan's economy, industry and markets.
However Nikkei's business does not stop at newspaper printing. With more than 40 affiliated companies the group business spreads to publishing, broadcasting, events, database services and index business.
