Baku, December 2, AZERTAC
A two-day Saudi Media Forum kicked off in Riyadh on Monday, which is attended by over 1,100 top media experts from 65 countries, reporting DND News Agency.
The slogan of the Saudi Media Forum is “Media Industry — Opportunities and Challenges”, in line with the developments in the communication environment of the media and social networks.
The forum will include working sessions, specialized workshops and an open meeting and would be attended by world-best media experts and representatives of Arab and international media.
Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi, President of the Saudi Media Forum while talking to DND News Agency said that Saudi Arabia has provided a platform to media practitioners to gather and review challenges and opportunities in world media industry and to do networking among media persons for their future connectivity.
On the first day of the Forum, participants discussed and interacted with emerging media issues and matters, and their relationship with the communicative developments in the Arab region and the world.
“We see the Saudi Media Forum as an important platform for media professionals and intellectuals to discuss, debate, and exchange opinions, because the differences, or say diversity of opinions is a healthy indication of a society’s strength and vitality. As Saudi Arabia is witnessing a period of unprecedented social, political, and economic change, its media sector should also be in line with the overall development and modernity taking place today, for stagnancy in the language of the media can be seen as the symbolic death for any nation, while innovation is the engine that drives a nation forward”, added President SMF Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi.
