Some 45 delegates from 26 countries across the globe began today a review of the needs and directions of public service broadcasting in Asia-Pacific as they participate in a seminar on ‘Creating and Enabling Environment for Public Service Broadcasting (PSB)’ in Bangkok.

The one-day seminar aims to generate ‘out of the box’ and new ideas about PSB, particularly in the digital world. Sally-Ann Wilson, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association, serves as the facilitator of the seminar organized and supported by AIBD, CBA, and UNESCO.

Topics covered include discussions and debate on the concept of PSB, future needs of audiences and citizens from PSB, possibilities for PSB in Asia, editorial values and potential of digital/new media content to strengthen PSB in South Asia.

The seminar is expected to generate some guidelines and recommendations to strengthen the development of free, independent and pluralistic media in South Asia.

The world celebrated the ITU’s ‘Girls in ICT Day’ on 26 April 2012. In Malaysia, the Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD) and Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) held ITU’s ‘Girls in ICT Day’ programme under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union-Universiti Utara Malaysia Asia Pacific Centre of Excellence for Rural ICT Development (ITU-UUM ASP CoE).

The Pacific Media Partnership meeting today adopted a key declaration calling on the governments, international organisations and all stakeholders to assist and empower the broadcasters in the Pacific region to help them carry out their mandate of providing information, education and entertainment through their services to audiences. This is deemed as an important step in the development and sustenance of the broadcasting industry in the region.

AIBD, the Goethe-Institut, KBS and the Korea Foundation enabled producers and executives of broadcasters from nine Southeast Asian countries to meet in Seoul at INPUT 2011 in May, with the aim to improve the quality of the ASEAN co-production edutainment series “I Got It!” and to be inspired by new TV formats, challenging content and innovative technologies under the conference motto “Dare the Future”.
