As Myanmar transitions to democracy, the country is opening up more opportunities in many spheres of endeavor that will bring about dynamic changes in the country. The media industry welcomes this openness, tracking a new direction towards freedom and responsibility, and engaging more with its audiences.

For this purpose, Myanmar’s broadcast media practitioners are pursuing initiatives to deal with strengthening human resource competence, expanding content sourcing and exchange, tapping new digital technologies and the challenges of sports coverage, among others.

These are concerns that the International Conference on Broadcasting Development in Myanmar aims to examine. It is a platform where local and international broadcast media practitioners converge to learn and exchange knowledge and expertise and expand networking.

The one-day Conference is an opportunity to identify strategies that will raise the quality of broadcasting and contribute towards the flourishing of democracy and development in Myanmar.
