  • Description

    Tunisia's prime Minister Hedi Nouira opened the first international symposium on increasing the flow of news between non-aligned countries in the capital, Tunis, on Friday (26 March).

    Representatives of more than 50 countries are attending the five day conference. Conclusions from the conference will be tabled for approval at the fifth summit of non-aligned countries to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in August.

    Mr. Mouira told the conference that the non-aligned countries did not have enough means of channelling information and were dependent on the developed countries of the world to supply news.

    This situation has caused a grave imbalance, he said, and it was obvious that those with the technological, financial and human resources to spread information were also those who held the power of political and economic decisions in the world today.

    Commenting on the symposium the independent French language newspaper, Le Temps, said that it believed that existing news agencies in developing countries could work immediately on disseminating news without the co-operation of world agencies.
