The first meeting between African and Ibero-American media regulating bodies opened Thursday in the Moroccan city of Fez with the aim to exchange expertise on areas of common interest.
Organized by Morocco’s regulator, the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication (HACA), in partnership with African Communication Regulation Authorities Network (ACRAN) and the Ibero-American Platform of Television Regulators (PRAI), the meeting discusses the role of media regulating bodies in the post-liberalized broadcasting sector in Africa and Latin America.
This first ACRAN-PRAI Summit seeks to boost cooperation between regulators from two sides and enable them to share experiences and expertise.
The meeting will address mainly broadcasting landscapes in Africa and Latin America, the role of regulators, management of political and social pluralism and diversity, as well as the promotion of gender equality in and through the broadcasting media. Enditem
