Hosted by Deutsche Welle
The fast growing economies of South and Southeast Asia also have a deep impact on the developments in the field of media. The news media and media markets are undergoing a massive transformation. Although many countries have shaken off the political controls of the past and are operating with unprecedented freedom, censorship and violence against journalists still occur in many places. Besides facing these challenges, many media managers and editors in Asia also find it difficult to take full advantage of their new freedoms because of mounting economic pressure. Thus they often struggle to sustain their hard-won advances on the editorial front. These managers are constantly looking for solutions to build a solid economic foundation to support the creation of quality content on multiple platforms.
This panel will highlight how media personalities from Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Singapore and Pakistan walk the fine line between economic pressure and editorial independence.
