Al-Eqtisadiah ranked among top online dailies.
Al-Eqtisadiah, which is appearing for the first time on the list, also grabbed second position among e-newspapers from the Kingdom. Salman Al-Dossary, editor in chief of the daily, congratulated his staff on the achievement. Saudi e-newspapers had the largest presence on the list this year with eight newspapers followed by the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon, each with seven newspapers. There were five newspapers each from Bahrain and Jordan. "This ranking places greater responsibility on the whole Al-Eqtisadiah team," Al-Dossary said and disclosed plans to strengthen the paper's position at national and Arab levels. "The leading position of Al-Eqtisadiah among major Arab newspapers reflects the pioneering position enjoyed by the publications of Saudi Research & Publishing Company," he said. The editor in chief also thanked readers of Al-Eqtisadiah's online and print editions. In a gala ceremony held in Dubai, attended by editors in chief of several newspapers from Arab countries along with senior executives from the corporate world, Forbes Middle East unveiled the coveted list for the second year in a row. This event was sponsored by Qualcomm and Al Tayyar Travel Group. Egyptian newspaper Al Youm Al Sabe topped the list for the second consecutive year. Algerian daily Chorouk bagged second position, moving up from third last year. Climbing 19 places from last year's list to third was Emarat Alyoum, followed by the Egyptian daily Al Ahram in fourth and Jordan's Al Rai in fifth.
