Dutch newspaper Financieele Dagblad will go digital “within three years”

In an interview, the director of FD Mediagroep Jacques Kuyf said he expects the Financieele Dagblad (the Dutch equivalent to Financial Times) to go fully digital within the next three years – with the exception of a paper edition in the weekends.

He gave the interview to BNR Radio in a reaction to the newly published circulation numbers of the Dutch press, which showed that the paper circulation of the FD is decreasing, while digital circulation is climbing.

Kuyf said that the move to digital is going at a much faster pace in the professional world than in the broader consumer market.

Emerce.nl notes that not all digital editions of newspapers in the Dutch market are doing as well as FD. Several titles, among which De Volkskrant, saw their digital circulation decline.
