BusinessWorld represents decades of professional economic journalism.
Founded by award-winning journalist and publisher Raul L. Locsin, BusinessWorld traces its roots to BusinessDay, Southeast Asia’s first business daily, which had its maiden issue in February 1967.
BusinessDay made its transition to BusinessWorld on July 27, 1987. Since then, even as the world of business evolves with the dynamic pace of time, BusinessWorld has remained the best and the most trusted business newspaper in the country.
In 2015, the Philippine Star Group of Publications (PhilStar) acquired 76.63% of BusinessWorld Publishing Corp. The acquisition by PhilStar strengthens the distribution and operations of BusinessWorld.
