Dear AIBD Radio Members and All Members,
 
Re: World Radio day 2016
 
Please accept our warm greetings from the Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD).
 
AIBD would like to request its member organisations to join hands with UNESCO to celebrate World Radio Day 2016 with the main theme of “Radio in Times of Emergency and Disaster”.
 
The World Radio Day falls on February 13, 2016. UNESCO is suggesting that various activities be held and programmes be broadcast leading to the day.
 
UNESCO has given five key themes and 15 ideas to celebrate the World Radio Day 2016. We would like to request broadcast organisations to follow the themes and ideas, which is attached with this letter.
 
For more information, please visit www.worldradioday.org, which was officially launched on 18 January 2016.

The14th AIBD General Conference recently approved three AIBD projects that will beef up the capability of the Institute’s workforce, improve current services to members, and expand memberships to new media industries.

The first project is a new initiative called AIBD Annual Media Research (AAMR) that will provide basic data collection and preliminary analysis subject to further deliberation from resource persons and speakers during the Summit.

It seeks collaboration with some 24 training and research institutions of member countries as well as international partners.

Mr Chang Jin, AIBD Director, says the Institute is eyeing more quality training and in-country workshops in its bid to offer better services to members and attract new members.

During the last 12 months, Director Chang Jin reported to the AIBD Executive Board that the Institute implemented 27 training activities benefitting close to 700 broadcasters from 46 countries and regions.

These activities covered various fields such as new media and social media, management, children/gender/youth, digitisation, production and training of trainers, among others.

China and Iran have accepted to host two important AIBD activities taking place in 2016 and 2017.

The State Administration of Press, Publications, Radio, Film and TV, China (SAPPRFT) has tentatively decided to host the Asia Media Summit in 2017, likely to be held outside Beijing.

However, it will need final approval from China’s central government before preparations for the Summit can begin.

This will be the third time China will host the AMS, the first happened in Macau and the second in Beijing in 2010.

UNESCO has urged broadcasters to put more focus on allowing greater women participation in media and on ensuring the safety of working journalists in Asia-Pacific.

A 2015 study by UNESCO, International Federation of Journalists and UN Woman shows that only 28% of women belong to the media workforce and much less at the decision-making level in the region.

On safety of journalists, UNESCO data indicates that a working journalist is killed every week and 90% of the crime is left unpunished.

AIBD has successfully implemented its programme activities and initiatives during the last 12 months, notably the Asia Media Summit 2015 in Kuala Lumpur and the 27 training activities benefitting close to 700 broadcasters from 46 countries and regions in Asia-Pacific and beyond.

It has also pursued close collaboration with governments, international, regional and national broadcasting organisations, among them, the Tun Abdul Razak Broadcasting Information Institute of Malaysia (IPPTAR), Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, ITU, ABU, EBU, CCTV and FES.
