44th Annual General Assembly of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union opens
As broadcast executives, industry partners and media specialists meet at the Convention Centre here in Georgetown, the President of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) is hoping that the region can go forward in a new digital media age.
CBU President Shida Bolai said she believes that the region cannot afford to fail when it comes to the standard of the broadcasting industry.
The annual meeting is expected to look at matters of digital transition, the business of broadcasting, public service broadcasting, new and traditional media and other relevant topics influencing the broadcasting environment.
President, Donald Ramotar who delivered the featured address, wants to see standards set for the industry and the region should not be left behind.
The Caribbean Broadcasting Union was formed in 1970 with a membership from all across the Caribbean in radio and television. It is a Non-Governmental Organisation with a head office in Barbados.
