Reuters announced it will more than double the number of Reuters reporters covering India.
The enhanced coverage will be led by Ira Dugal, who joins Reuters as financial news editor for India. She will play a pivotal role in delivering an in-depth finance and markets news offering for Refinitiv’s clients in India and beyond.
Dugal was previously at BQ Prime, where she served as executive editor.
“The expansion of our footprint in India will allow Reuters to deliver unmatched coverage of Indian financial markets and business in India and around the world,” said Reuters editor-in-chief Alessandra Galloni in a statement. “We’re delighted to have Ira join the team to lead Reuters coverage of this critical story.”
