Nikkei Asian Review is pleased to announce that we are launching new and enhanced services on Nov. 20 to mark our first anniversary.
Our revamp will comprise three main elements: a stronger focus on selected blue-chip companies from across Southeast Asia, including stock prices and financial information; increased coverage of Japan, a Nikkei strength; and greater use of videos to show you Asia from a new perspective.
1 ASEAN 100
Our new ASEAN 100 section will keep you up-to-date on all the news on more than 100 publicly traded companies in member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
The companies have been selected from among six major ASEAN countries based on such factors as market capitalization and growth potential. The ASEAN 100 will start with 122 companies: 25 from Singapore, 25 from Thailand, 25 from Indonesia, 22 from Malaysia, 20 from the Philippines and five from Vietnam.
To give you a full picture of the companies, each will have its own Web page providing its profile, financial data and stock-price movements, as well as a list of articles we have written about the company. We will supplement that content with surveys and rankings, and analyses of industrial and market trends.
We plan to gradually expand this detailed coverage to include companies in India, China and other Asian countries starting next year.
2 Japan Update
Interest in Japan is on the upswing. Abenomics, bold monetary strategies by the Bank of Japan, the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and recent Nobel Prize victories by three Japanese-born physicists are just a few of the topics that have caught the world's attention. Our new Japan Update section will meet growing demand for news and other information on the country.
We will step up coverage of Japanese companies and bring you more-detailed information on the country's financial markets -- particularly stocks and government bonds -- cutting-edge technologies and other subjects of interest to our international readers. We will also provide Nikkei specialties such as earnings forecasts and other value-added content prized by overseas investors.
Rounding out our revamp is the addition of a VIDEOS section, where we will take you on location for a more dynamic look at the region.
Explore videos linked to feature stories published in our weekly magazine. Watch analysts explain our articles. Catch interviews with top executives of major companies. Enjoy videos on Asian culture, cuisine and tourist hot spots. Take a deeper look at the latest industrial technologies and consumer trends in Japan.
This section will also give viewers a glimpse at life across Asia, from bustling border towns and busy production lines to popular stores and jampacked restaurants.
