Newsweek Pakistan was set up to inform debates and discussions about news and events in Pakistan—at home as well as abroad. Newsweek Pakistan works with its international partners to cover all the news that matters most. It is the country’s No. 1 newsmagazine, valued by opinion makers for its world-class reporting and analysis.

In order to retain editorial independence, Newsweek Pakistan does not accept government advertising and takes special care to highlight for its readers any actual or perceived conflicts of interest between its news coverage and its corporate interests. Newsweek Pakistan operates on the principle of fear- and favor-free journalism.

On Facebook and Twitter, Newsweek Pakistan provides real-time updates and alerts to over half million of its social-media subscribers.

The newsmagazine has also hosted and sponsored events and seminars. On April 2, 2010, at Lahore, Newsweek Pakistan hosted an exclusive breakfast for Dr. Abdullah Gül, President of the Republic of Turkey (pictured above, with Punjab’s Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif after the Newsweek Pakistan event).

“Our credo is to draw attention with reason, rationale and rigor to the challenges and opportunities facing one of the world’s most important countries,” says AG Chairman Iqbal Z. Ahmed. “Our media enterprises are necessary public services that will enrich the discourse.”
