Czech Senate, embassy delegation visited GPB

Georgian Public Broadcaster Director General Tinatin Berdzenishvili Tuesday hosted Vice-President Jiří Růžička-headed delegation of the Senate of the Czech Republic, including the chair and MPs of the Standing Senate Committee on Media, as well as the representatives of the Czech Embassy in Georgia.

The conversation focused on the media standards and the projects to deepen links with the Czech Public Broadcaster.

“We had an important meeting with the representatives of the Czechia. We consider the Public Broadcaster an essential institution for the EU states and the country on the European integration path. The talks concentrated on media standards that the Public Broadcaster and the overall media should follow. Fake news as a global challenge was in focus. GPB should continue the partnership with similar organizations through the European Broadcasting Union. We discussed ongoing projects and the prospects for further cooperation with the Czech Public Broadcaster. I believe the significance of the public broadcaster will be many times highlighted on that EU integration path,” Tinatin Berdzenishvili said.

Vice-President Jiří Růžička said that the delegation reviewed the situation in Georgia as the Czech Republic is to hold the EU presidency on June 1.

“It was an important meeting with the head of the GPB First Channel. We talked about media, journalism and mainly media independence,” Jiří Růžička said.
