  • Description

    Plans aimed at bringing closer co-operation between television stations throughout the Gulf States were discussed in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates on Saturday (29 May).

    The UAE State Minister for Information Affairs, Saeed El Ghaith, urged closer co-ordination of both programme production and technical information between the Gulf States. Delegated from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman attended the conference.

    Referring to the Gulf information ministers meeting last year, Mr. Ghaith said he could see positive results already flowing from that meeting. He said he hoped this conference would be as successful.

    The UAE Information Under Secretary, Mr. Abdullah El Nuweis, told newsmen that one of the main proposals was the creation of a permanent department for television co-ordination throughout the Gulf States. Other items discussed in the two-day conference include joint production of programmes, series and historical films. Educational services on television would be improved, he said.
