History and profile

Dagens industri was founded in 1976[2][3] with two issues per week. In 1983 it increased its periodicity to five issues per week[3] and to six in 1990.[4] It has since started affiliate newspapers in Austria, Estonia (Äripäev), Latvia (Dienas Bizness), Lithuania (Verslo Žinios), Poland, Russia, Scotland and Slovenia. Dagens Industri is owned by the Swedish family-owned media group Bonnier AB[5][6] and is published in tabloid format.[7]

The stated position of the editorial page is independent liberal-conservative.[8] The newspaper's online edition, di.se, has been voted as Sweden's "best economics online site" 20 years in a row between 1999 and 2019, in a competition held by the PR-firm Hallvarsson & Halvarsson.[9]
