The conference that’s being held in the Tongan capital of Nuku’alofa, involves more than 70 senior executives of broadcasting and media organisations in Pacific island countries.

This conference provides a platform for the broadcasters in the Pacific to share their knowledge and expertise to improve and promote media coverage in the region.

The conference will make the participants aware of the rapidly changing media landscape and help them in responding to this change and offer an opportunity to the senior executives to discuss issues crucial to the sustainability and development of broadcasting in the region.
