Lao PDR media and Thai MCOT partner up

Lao media delegation visited MCOT’s headquarters in Bangkok as Thailand and Laos celebrate the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations next year.

Executives and editorial staff of five leading media agencies of Lao PDR on Wednesday met with MCOT’s directors of news, radio service and MCOT Academy to exchange ideas and discuss future cooperation.

They discussed news content production and service that would enhance relations and understanding between the peoples of the two neighboring countries.

The visiting delegates paid special attention to the role of media in handling and verifying fake news as MCOT has operated an anti-fake news center which deciphers viral content on social media platforms.
