Sales of both the South China Morning Post and Sunday Morning Post rose in the first half of this year compared to the same period of 1995, underlining their dominance of the English-speaking market in Hong Kong. Circulation of the daily paper averaged 104,037 copies a day between January and June, compared to 102,881 in the same period of 1995, according to figures certified by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. The Sunday Morning Post sold an average of 88,318 each week in the same period, up from 84,680 in the first six months of 1995. 'These figures are particularly satisfactory when read with our own regular surveys showing the Post with more than 90 per cent of street sales in our sector of the market,' said Editor Jonathan Fenby. 'We have introduced a series of editorial improvements all through the paper this year, and we are gratified by the favourable response from readers.'
