Tunis, 12 December 2018
On December 12, in the framework of ASBU General Assembly, the ASBU-COPEAM-EBU tripartite meeting took place in Tunis, during which the representatives of the three Associations made an year-end review of the joint cooperation activities.
In the field of training, the success of the workshop on Cultural Journalism - organized by Rai in Perugia (Italy) earlier this month and addressed to the professionals members of COPEAM and ASBU - was highlighted, as the rich number of TVs participating in the 7th edition of Inter-Rives on "Harbour cities: places of exchanges and stories", whose first workshop took place at ASBU last November.
An assessment of the common project Generation what? Arabic version was also done, with the announcement of a regional comparative study of all countries involved; and the annual statistics of the ERN-Med, the Mediterranean exchange of news, were presented, with a total volume of about 1000 contributions, of which a fairly large part provided by ASBU, through the Menos system.
Finally, a new area of cooperation was envisaged in the radio sector: the proposal of a thematic co-production in Arabic language, open to all common members of the three Unions.
