HuffPost Media to Launch Huffington Post Japan

Huffington Post の日本によろしく. That’s Japanese for “Say hello to The Huffington Post Japan.” Or at least we think it is. If it’s wrong, take it up with the dudes and dudettes at Google. Anyway, the point of that was to introduce the newest International HuffPost site.

HuffPost Media Group is partnering with Japan’s Asahi Shimbun Company to make the Japanese-language version of the HuffPost happen. As for when the site will launch, well, that’s still being worked out. However, HuffPost officials are still excited about it.

“This is a key step in the global growth of The Huffington Post as it marks our entrance into Asia, the fastest-growing region in the world, economically,” Jimmy Maymann, CEO of HuffPost Media Group, said in a statement. ”We are thrilled to have The Asahi Shimbun Company, a leading publisher in Japan and one of the largest newspapers in the world, as our partner.”

HuffPost Japan will be the companies sixth International site, joining the U.K., Canada, France, Spain, and Italy.
