Fiji and Korea broadcast heads meet to improve cooperation

The heads of the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation and Korean Broadcasting System have been meeting in Seoul to discuss greater cooperation between the two broadcasters.

FBC Chief Executive Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum was hosted by KBS President Cho Dae-hyun, who is also the newly-elected President of the ABU.

The two heads had already signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2012at the ABU General Assembly in Seoul, and this visit marked the first time since then that FBC delegates had visited the KBS headquarters. Mr Sayed-Khaiyum and Mr Cho discussed current cooperation and considered future opportunities to work together.

The ABU President invited FBC to participate in the Union’s upcoming CARE 5 project that will be led by KBS. The project will focus on education, with the title “Road to School: The Future.” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said a strong relationship should continue to promote high quality programming throughout the Asia-Pacific. FBC previously shared the KBS drama “Empress Cheonchu” with Fiji audiences.

The FBC CEO congratulated Mr Cho on his recent election as President of the ABU. He expressed support and enthusiasm for Mr Cho’s leadership and vision for the future of Asia-Pacific broadcasting. Mr Cho promised to work hard to promote the growth and unity of the ABU.
