Experts meet in Myanmar to develop broadcasting

More than 100 broadcasters and technical professionals from Myanmar and across the region attended a three-day gathering in Yangon co-hosted by the ABU to promote broadcasting development.

Myanmar’s Forever Group helped organise and host the Digital Broadcasting Conference for Asian Broadcasters, an annual event comprising two days of workshops and a conference.

The Conference was inaugurated by the Deputy Minister of Information in Myanmar, U Paik Htway, who expressed hope the broadcasting industry in Myanmar would develop rapidly and meet the needs of the growing audiences.

 “This gathering of experts is certainly fruitful and will benefit broadcasters locally and in the region,” he said.

After outlining current developments in the media industry of Myanmar, he thanked the organisers for bringing together such a productive broadcasting technology event.

Earlier, in welcoming participants, Mr Sharad Sadhu of the ABU said the conference would expose delegates to new developments in broadcasting technology and in the rest of the industry.

Forever Group Director Mr Khin Maung Htay surveyed the media landscape in Myanmar and developments envisaged in the near term.
