Enlarging our borders of cooperation is one of COPEAM main strategic axis in the last few years.
Following the recent approach to the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, with the participation of the Secretary General to the 2018 edition of the Media2020 conference in Astana (Kazakhstan), and the high contribution ABU gave to our last annual conference in Split, a number of forthcoming rendezvous are set in our agenda, involving again COPEAM and the main audiovisual Asiatic operators:
- The forum “The Role of Media in Social Integration and Peace” that will be co-hosted by KBS Global Korean Network channel in the South Korean capital, Seoul, on 19-20 August 2019;
- The new edition of Media2020 in Bucharest, next October 3, co-organized with our member Radio Romania and devoted to “What unites us: Crossing borders in the digital world”.
In both occasions, COPEAM will bring its best practices related respectively to “Media as Bridge Builder and Contributor of Social Integration” and “Digital technology and the preservation of our collective memory and culture”.
In addition to this, and after exploring – at the beginning of the year - new partnerships in the Middle East aimed at setting up fruitful ties in Jordan and Lebanon with local players, COPEAM is building brand-new relationships with TAL, the Latin American TVs Association. A three-level cooperation has already been jointly identified in the fields of programmes’ exchange, co-production and Mediterranean representation – as a jury member - in the framework of TAL Awards for the best productions by public and cultural broadcasters of Latin America: some preliminary concrete steps towards a factual and structured cooperation agreement.
