The Asia Media Summit 2012 has concluded in Bangkok, Thailand contributing to a meaningful platform for knowledge sharing and building partnerships. It highlighted some of the daunting challenges broadcasters face in the changing media landscape.
Mr. Yang Binyuan, Director of AIBD, calls on broadcasters in Asia-Pacific to continue seeking new ideas and concrete directions and strategies in tapping the opportunities of the digital technology. The Asia Media Summit is a good platform for this purpose, he said.
Mr. Houlin Zhao, ITU Deputy Secretary General, says ITU will continue to work with AIBD and other partners to assist in the best possible and feasible manner in the digital migration process.
Ms. Mariyam Mizna Shareef, Maldives Minister of State for Tourism, Arts and Culture, and President of AIBD General Conference says the Internet, social media and mobile platforms are making a strong presence in Asia-Pacific, offering new ways to push out content and get connected with audiences.
Dr. Noeleen Heyzer, UN Under Secretary-General, proposed a five point call for action, urging media to use their skills and resources to create greater impact on sustainable development, the single most important challenge in Asia Pacific, and ensure more people benefit from development.
For media organizations to create impact in today’s society, they must build and strengthen public trust, and prove beyond any doubt that they have public interest in their heart.
Indonesia has extended its invitation to the Asia Media Summit 2013 that will be hosted in the city of Manado. The official handover ceremony was held at the AMS 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand.
Broadcasters and other media stakeholders in Asia Pacific presented additional recommendations for the proposed Bangkok Declaration 2003 +10 that will serve as a guide in strengthening their responses to the changing media landscape and emerging global realities.
Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, urges broadcasters in Asia-Pacific to tell sustainable development stories in the region, including successes and setbacks that can “ serve as a model for the way forward and in offering solutions for tomorrow.”
Building authority, honesty, trust, credibility, and a sense of mission are some of the values public service broadcasters need to sustain their existence and growth in the fast changing media landscape.
