As part of the Boao Forum for the 2014 Asia Annual Conference in Hainan Province, China, a Media Leaders Roundtable was held on 8 April 2014 inviting senior media executives from nearly 20 countries across the world to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the digital age.

What difficulties will media organisations encounter in the path of innovation? Through what revolutions could media outlets release new growing motivation and shoulder greater responsibilities, while promoting the development of human civilization?

Mr. Wang Gengnian, President of China Radio International (CRI) and organiser of the event, moderated the roundtable discussions. He stressed that the media leaders roundtable provided a platform to examine the many dimensions of media and diversity, and its impact on crafting a clear vision and innovative strategies in order to build a sustainable organisation and foster a ‘media organisation and a society of difference’.

Mr. Yang Binyuan, AIBD Director attended the roundtable as a special guest.

The Forum is modeled after the World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland. It has its fixed address in Bo’ao, Hainan, China.

The Forum initiated since 2002 is committed to promoting regional economic integration and bringing Asian countries even closer to their development goals. This year’s Forum from 8-11 April 2014 is under the theme ‘Asia’s New Future: Identifying New Growth Drivers’.
