There may be need to prioritise news-gathering, or establish a more permanent presence in locations important to the Network’s markets, such as Aviation, or for General News geo-politically. The level of presence will reflect, and be proportional to, the significance of the location by these measures.

The Network expects to principally achieve this via: the services of established News Agencies; content sharing agreements with other Media entities; the use of freelancers; and permanently posted personnel. The growing trend in ‘Produced-on-behalf-of’ services from News Agencies is seen as significantly reducing the traditional obligation to building multiple regional bureaus globally, and enables significant flexibility of broadcast and editorial assets.

The creation of regional bureaus or additional broadcasting centres is seen as a long-term consideration; the basis of which will be the level of market growth observed; geopolitical; and financial.Increased presence is, however, foreseen in a number of locations relevant to news-gathering, but does not directly reflect a justification for regional bureaus in those markets, though may reflect need for permanently based correspondents or increased freelance and agency contacts and arrangements.

The locations most likely to warrant an increased news-gathering ability (as opposed to regional bureaus) are listed below. In the event that funding options for Tier #2 & #3 are adopted, then New York and Singapore would both join the list, and be high-priority locations until future growth allowed for their establishment:
