The Globe and Mail has introduced a host of significant changes and enhancements to its print and digital products.

The newspaper has adopted a new design and a trimmer 12-inch (30.5-cm) wide broadsheet format. A new weekday section, Globe Life, debuts and ReportonBusiness.com officially launches as a one-stop site for The Globe's business and investing content online. A new Market Action Centre has been created at ReportonBusiness.com, while the newspaper section places its emphasis on interpreting the financial results of the previous day. These developments are supported by the hiring of 30 journalists and significant investments in foreign reporting, new features, columns, print and digital design, and newsroom operations. www.environicspr.com; April 23, 2007

The newspaper group Independent News and Media is creating 60 jobs at a new printing press in Newry. The £20m plant was opened by chief executive Sir Anthony O'Reilly and former MP for the area Seamus Mallon. The company prints more than 30 newspapers, including the News of the World and the Daily Express.

O'Reilly said Newry was chosen for "its strategic position on the North/South corridor, excellent infrastructure and skilled employees." Newspapers previously produced in Dublin are "now printed and transported south before dawn to the markets of the Republic," he said, adding that their printing presses in Belfast had run out of capacity just months before the beginning of a 15-year contract to print News International publications, including the Sun and the News of the World. "This is in addition to Belfast printing the Daily Express, Daily Star, Daily Telegraph, Daily and Sunday Mirror, the People and an array of other titles," he said. The Belfast Telegraph, which is owned by the Independent group, will continue to be printed in Belfast, where its presses were recently upgraded.

Following several successful experiments in editorial and newsroom management, JoongAng Ilbo initiated South Korea's first major Sunday newspaper March 18, 2007. JoongAng Ilbo pioneered the use of horizontal copy layout, topical sections and specialist reporters with investigative reporting teams in Korea. Since April 15, 1995, JoongAng Ilbo has been laid out horizontally. At that time it also became a morning newspaper. http://www.nikkei.co.jp/events/asiamedia/speakers_en.html; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joongang_Daily; April 2007

The Halifax Evening Courier will print its last broadsheet issue on Friday, March 23, and show off its first compact look on March 26.

The paper has been published in tabloid size on a Saturday for several years. The historic move to compact six days a week is in response to customer demand, with recent market research showing an overwhelming preference in its patch for local news in a smaller, easier-to-handle format. The switch has also allowed for a reshuffle of content, with more local news at the front and a comprehensive what's on guide every day.

The Courier's Property Today supplement on Fridays will remain a broadsheet pull-out in response to advertiser demand. Friday's Courier will be the last ever in broadsheet form – and the last broadsheet evening paper in mainland Britain. The Belfast Telegraph remains the last evening broadsheet in the United Kingdom. http://www.holdthefrontpage.co.uk/news/2007/03mar/070320cour.shtml; March 20, 2007
