Looking for answers nobody has

Juris Mendzins, managing director of the Latvian Media house AS Diena, says: "We are all facing the same questions and asking how we should deal with the meltdown. I don't think I will get an answer at the World Newspaper Congess. But I hope to find ideas that are worth trying."

Mendzins also sees serious challenges for online publishing: "The behaviour of the user is changing dramatically. Users are relying more on their friends and not on established publishers to get to their information."
