The BETA News Agency presented its new project on Dec. 18, the "BETA Briefing", and the marketing and placement director of BETA, Zorica Filipovic, stated that it represented a pay wall model of the web-site of BETA, which covers and explains political and economic events in Serbia and the region, through news, analyses and biographies of prominent public figures.
"Some of the content of BETA Briefing is available for reading free of charge. However, the form of BETA Briefing is actually the 'pay wall' model. That means that most of the content is available to those subscribed or registered at BETA Briefing," Filipovic said.
The director of USAID's SMS project, Evan Tracz, said that they were "very honored and proud" to have the opportunity to work with the BETA agency for the past "a little more than a year" and that they helped in the development of the new BETA Briefing.
It is very important that we work with BETA, because it produces a lot of news items and contents which many other sources in Serbia use, Tracz stated.
The director of BETA, Radomir Diklic, said that the agency has been presenting its service in the English language for 25 years now, with distribution that is in step with the world technological developments.
