On Friday, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain underlined the early implementation of Pak-Japan joint projects of modernization and technical up-gradation of Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) and Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (PBC).
In a discussion with Ambassador of Japan Kuninori Matsuda, the minister said that both countries enjoyed a partnership of six decades which was nurtured by successive generations of top echelons of leadership.
“We grew up while using Japanese technology and products globally known for their first-class quality and durability,” said the federal minister.
Fawad added that the state-run entities like PTV, PBC, and Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) were being transformed to meet the requirements of a fast-changing world and further highlighted the need for the execution of Pak-Japan projects.
The government is determined to transform APP into a premium digital news agency on the pattern of well-known leading international news agencies. Under the scheme, the government aims to establish at least 11 modern studios in major cities of the country to create and strengthen a state-of-the-art and flourishing video news service of APP.
