Speakers stressed the need for collaboration among the key stakeholders to flourish collectively and better serve the nation with positive and constructive information.

Along with heads of broadcasting and technology companies, academicians and health experts took part in the discussions.

The Director General of Radio Pakistan, Tahir Hassan, said the emerging trends of digital broadcasting demanded collaboration among the relevant organisations.
