Emerging Asian Markets - Challenges for the Media

Tuesday, 18 June 2013, 2:00 p.m., Pumpenhaus

Hosted by Deutsche Welle

The media industry in Asia has seen tremendous growth in channels, films, newspaper, radio stations and other forms of media over the last decade.
With the sector poised to double in size by 2017, it still faces big challenges. One is the impact of economic factors on independent media organizations. Studies show that they are generally underestimated and often play a bigger role than political pressure. The majority of media organizations in Asia consider the economic climate and market conditions to be the major challenges to editorial independence and the business advancement of their media outlets. It is widely believed that only those that understands their audiences and the market forces can successfully diversify revenue streams to defend editorial independence and ensure sustainability of objective and quality media content.

This panel will shed light on these challenges in various markets and will explore different models and solutions with media personalities from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and Pakistan.
