Trinity Mirror has launched a new free monthly Liverpool Echo business publication.

‘Business Post’ promises to include news and analysis about the business scene in the city region.

The 40-page first edition previews plans for a major trade visit to China, organised by Liverpool Vision, and features Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson and Wirral Council leader Phil Davies on the front cover underneath the city’s Chinese Arch.

Alistair Houghton, Editor and Liverpool Echo City Editor, said: “Liverpool City Region is one that is moving forward and moving fast.

“There are many successes to shout about – and many more to look forward to. Business Post aims to do that.

“Through targeted distribution, Business Post will be delivered free to Chief Executive Officers and key decision makers across the city region. All in the belief that effective communication will drive achievement.

“Our aim is for Business Post to be a touchstone for people who drive commerce forward on Merseyside.”
