“Die Zeitung” is Paraguay’s only print magazine in German, which is now also available in Europe as a PDF version. This publication informs about the most relevant news in Paraguay and South America on a monthly basis. It is read by far more than 1,000 subscribed readers, many of them CEOs of international corporations as well as political leaders and member of the foreign offices and other entities engaged in Paraguay. “Die Zeitung” also has a growing number of subscribers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Some years ago I joined the editorial staff of “Die Zeitung” and am responsible for the cultural department as well as the Berlin office which attends our Germany-based readers and partners.
