The representatives of European Broadcasting Union (EBU) – Head of Member Relations for Eastern Europe Radka Betcheva and EBU Head of Radio Graham Dixon have held meetings with the Management of the First Channel of GPB and the members of Board of Trustees of Georgian Public Broadcaster today.
As Head of Member Relations for Eastern Europe Radka Betcheva remarked during the meeting she got acquainted with the novelties implemented in the Public Broadcaster.
“Today we have meetings with management and supervisory board. We were introduced with the new changes and new programs in the Georgian Public Broadcaster. I think that it is very positive development that legislative amendments in the law on broadcasting were adopted by the parliament. It will definitely help public broadcaster to have quality programs for all members of the society. We believe that the adoption of amendments to the law would really provide Public Broadcaster with the good legal basis for the development. We have met with new members of the Board. It seems that they have different opinions; different voices and views are represented in the Board which is very positive fact. Most important is that they united around the best practices and standards for good, accountable and professional public media, “- said Radka Bedevich.
Georgian Public Broadcaster is a member of the European Broadcasting Union since 2005 and is actively cooperating with the organisation and its member media outlets.
