Bloomberg Carries Prime-Tass News

Bloomberg has begun offering its clients access to Prime-Tass' English-language service under a deal signed by the two news agencies earlier this week.

"We hope that the creation of the English-language news service ... will expand our presence in the market of English-language news and increase our number of subscribers," Prime-Tass CEO Oleg Ananyev said Tuesday.

"Signing an agreement with one of the world's leading information providers is another step toward creating an information bridge between Russia and the rest of the world," he said.

Prime-Tass news will be available to Bloomberg subscribers through the agency's 160,000 terminals worldwide.

Russel Levi, Bloomberg's director of sales for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, welcomed the chance to work with Prime-Tass.

"We hope that this business venture will help Prime-Tass further distribute its news and reach new clients while helping Bloomberg strengthen its position throughout Russia," said Levi.
