New Media Standing Committee holds second meeting in Tunis


The Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) headquarters in Tunis hosts on October 18 - 19, 2018 the second meeting of the newly-created New Media Standing Committee, established two years ago to help define a common policy allowing ASBU and its member corporations to make the most of what the interactive media and social networking have made available.

The meeting agenda includes, inter alia, the following items:

Presentation and evaluation of news and program exchanges via the ASBU Cloud network

Adoption of the draft New Media charter 

New media training

It is to be noted that the standing committees represent key consultative structures helping ASBU achieve its work. They present their annual recommendations to the Executive Council and the General assembly. ASBU has seven standing committees covering Administrative and Financial affairs, New Media, technical affairs, TV programming, News, Radio, and Sports.
