Xpress to cease print publishing

Dubai-based weekly tabloid newspaper, Xpress has ceased print publications. Published by Gulf News, the final edition was published on August 30, 2018 and will continue to exist online. 
“Xpress lived on for more than 11 years, bringing readers quality community stories and investigative reports of high international standards,” says Abdul Hamid Ahmad, Editor-in-Chief, Gulf News. “And for most of these reports, we had to dig deeper to collect information and meticulously check the facts before we published them. Many of these reports were picked up by the foreign media. The stories exposed fraud, they uncovered crime, and they put the spotlight on unfair dealings. I would like to thank our readers, who placed their trust in us, the editor of Xpress and all the staff, who were a part of its launch, its journey and its success.”
