Budapest, December 7, AZERTAC
Former president of MTI Hungarian News Agency, Matyas Vince, has shared his thoughts about the 5th News Agencies World Congress (NAWC) held in Baku in November. "The host of the Congress, the Azerbaijan State News Agency AZERTAC, and the organizing partner, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, have done an excellent job by flawlessly organizing the event. The choice of the venue, the hyper-modern Heydar Aliyev Center reflected the ambition of the organizers to house the discussion of the world media elite in a 21st century environment", Mr. Vince told AZERTAC.”
Reflecting to the new century as well, the presentations and the panel discussions on challenges facing the news agencies brought up mostly topical issues of common interest, he added. "It seemed to me, that the participants were in agreement, that large scale news dissemination by the social media is a great challenge for the news agency business, which has to remain faithful to its core value – reliability," stressed the ex-president of MTI.
