Astana Media Week - a consequence of the increased attention of the state to media problems - Abayev

Carrying out Astana Media Week is a natural consequence of the increased attention of the state and society to problems of mass communications, the minister of information and communications of Kazakhstan Dauren Abayev told in a welcoming speech.

"Holding such large-scale event not casually is a natural consequence of the increased attention of the state and society to problems of mass communications. It is not only about media, but also about information exchange of the power and society, rapid development of social networks and the Internet and emergence in this context of new ethical dilemmas," the minister told, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

Abayev reported that today the country's first content market for representatives of 90 production-companies will be carried out.

"Big surprise for us was that in Kazakhstan such number of the production-companies works. I hope, this event will become an additional impulse for development of all this branch. There are more than 15 domestic and seven foreign TV channels. All of them will have an opportunity to present the production and to conclude the corresponding arrangements. For all of us it will be unique experience which we intend to use further," the head of department added.

The minister advised channels actively to get into gear on studying of content of the production-companies.

"I know that now it is very difficult to them to reach the management of TV channels. It is necessary to pass a set of stages. It is an opportunity to communicate directly to TV channels and studios. Production-studios can present directly to us the product today if we like it," Abayev noted.

We will note that the minister of information and communications Dauren Abayev at opening of Astana Media Week said that they plan to create regional media hub on the basis of the building of "Kazmedia ortalygy".
