New York—Dow Jones & Co. has reached an agreement for Dow Jones Newswires to distribute editorial content from Agence France-Presse (AFP). Dow Jones also announced plans to expand its global editorial staff.

Under the agreement, Dow Jones Newswires will distribute general and political news from AFP, the Paris-based international news agency.

Separately, Dow Jones said it will not renew the news partnership between Dow Jones Newswires and the Associated Press. Content agreements that The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Factiva have with AP are not affected by the decision.

The planned expansion of editorial staff follows the company’s announcement last week that it had acquired Betten Financial News, a Dutch-language news service covering the corporate sector in the Netherlands.
