'The main highlight for me was The Straits Times increasing its readership from 1.3 million to 1.44 million. This is huge, because it was achieved despite all manner of competitive threats.

'I want to commend The Straits Times' editors and staff for this performance.

'We take flak from many quarters - sometimes deserved, but most times not.

'But what can't be disputed is that we deliver a product that both readers and advertisers are prepared to pay for.

'So I want to say to all ST staff: Well done, and keep up the great work.'

Mr Patrick Daniel, editor-in-chief of Singapore Press Holdings' English and Malay Newspapers Division
