Mr Yan Chengsheng, Deputy Director General of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film & Television, China, announced that China will host the 14th AMS in 2017 during the closing ceremony of the Asia Media Summit on 26 May 2016 in Incheon, Korea.

For broadcasters to develop and sustain cutting-edge content, they must ensure it is interactive and produced and delivered on multi-screens. Such content must cater to more young people and also be part of the whole industrial chain.

This advice came from Mr Lv Peng, President of Shandong TV, China, who participated in the CEO Roundtable at the 13th Asia Media Summit on 26 May 2016 in Incheon, Korea

Audiences will have many screens to watch news anytime and anywhere, and to draw their attention, particularly the young, broadcast journalists must have a story to tell, one that offers accuracy, analysis, and expertise, and must help audiences make sense of it.

This approach is how BBC World Service has operated in the world, says Ms Francesca Unsworth, Director, World Serive Group, BBC, United KIngdom, emphasising that “content remains queen or king.”

  • AIBD category:

Asian media is raising concerns about the ‘invasion’ of globalised content on various screens that threatens local content and may necessitate government regulation such as imposing a content quota system to preserve local cultures in the region.

In Bhutan, Bollywood programmes and Korean dramas and variety shows have invaded local content, says Kinley Dorji, a journalist and Secretary, Ministry of Information of Bhutan during the Moderated Debate at the 13th Asia Media Summit in Incheon, Korea.
