MINSK, 12 November (BelTA) – The Belarusian Telegraph Agency (BelTA) and Indonesia's top media network Jawa Pos have signed a cooperation agreement.
BelTA Director General Iryna Akulovich noted that Belarus-Indonesia relations develop dynamically. BelTA and a major Indonesian news agency Antara signed a cooperation agreement in June 2015. “Since then we've been interacting in matters of sharing news about events in our countries. On the whole, Southeast Asia is one of the most dynamically developing regions from the point of view of economy and modern technologies, one of the key suppliers of news. The same can be said about Indonesia in particular. This is why we are happy to sign the agreement with Jawa Pos, happy to have another partner in this region,” Iryna Akulovich said.
The agreement provides for sharing news, photos, and videos.
According to Iryna Akulovich, the agreement will continue BelTA's information interaction with foreign partners, which number exceeds 30 now. BelTA tightly cooperates with foreign news agencies and online mass media, including via the international multifunctional media platform PNN developed by the South Korean news agency Yonhap. The media platform has brought together about 40 participants from various countries across the globe.
In turn, Head of Jawa Pos's National Department Tatang Mahardika thanked Iryna Akulovich for the warm welcome and noted it was a great honor for him to be in Belarus. “We would like our cooperation to become real. We would like to share photos and videos so that people in our countries could learn more about each other. We could also jointly research the most interesting topics,” he added.
BelTA has also implemented a media project together with the news agencies AzerTAc (Azerbaijan), Trend (Azerbaijan), Armenpress (Armenia), Kazinform (Kazakhstan), Kabar (Kyrgyzstan), and Khovar (Tajikistan) to create a multilateral news distribution system. Developed and administrated by BelTA, the system allows posting proprietary, authentic content on foreign media platforms without involving the editorial staff of the partners. BelTA's news about the most important events in Belarus is transmitted online via channels of the association of national news agencies of the CIS member states ANIA.
Jawa Pos is the largest media network in Indonesia. It has about 200 regional divisions due to the multiple-island geographic nature of the country. The news agency's track record began on 1 July 1949 with the publication of the Jawa Pos newspaper. Nowadays Jawa Pos Group comprises printed media, television, and digital mass media.More about Society
