"When times get tougher, the need for quality information becomes even more important" says Time Asia Publisher John Marcom.
"The growth seen in the latest numbers shows that more Asians than ever are relying on Time to keep up with the changes in the world around them. Our customers appreciate the value of this type of consumer commitment."
The circulation growth also follows editorial improvements and "regionalization". In late 1996, Time Inc.'s Asian edition became the first international publication to be edited and produced in Asia and is now the largest Englishlanguage weekly magazine in the region.
