/PRNewswire/ --
Ukraine
is ready to host the 64
th
World Newspaper Congress, said the
Chairman of the State Committee for Television and Radio
Broadcasting Oleksandr Kurdinovych in his interview
with
Komsomolskaya Pravda
. The aim of the event is to stipulate
more efficient information flow between
Ukraine
and the rest of the
world, noted the state official.
A little over a week ago
Kyiv
heard the final whistle of the
EURO 2012
European
football championship and yet again the country is ready to host another major
international event. To accommodate the foreign participants of the congress
the Ukrainian government, back in February of 2012, decided to simplify the
visa procedure and make it free of charge.
The World Newspaper Congress will take place in
Kyiv
on
September 2-5, 2012
and is expected to bring up to 1,200 delegates - representatives of influential
international media. The event will also feature the World Editors Forum as well
as the annual Info Services Expo 2012.
Now that millions of European football fans and the leading international media
discovered Ukrainian hospitality during the
EURO 2012
, it is high time to
establish a deeper and more comprehensive cooperation between Ukrainian
and foreign journalists, stated Oleksandr Kurdinovych. Number one objective of
the World Association of Newspapers and Publishers (WAN-IFRA) congress is
insuring that objective information on developments in
Ukraine
reaches the
"western world," he mentioned.
According to Ukrainian media the upcoming congress is going to be the second
largest international event in
Ukraine
after
EURO 2012
championship.
In preparation to the sports tournament
Ukraine
drastically improved its
infrastructure and, according to Michel Platini, UEFA President, the country's
success was extraordinary. He also noted that the
Ukraine's
infrastructure
leaped 30 years into the future after having built and renovated airports, built
new roads, constructed and renewed 290 hotels. In addition,
Ukraine
was listed
as number one among CIS countries regarding railroad infrastructure
development, according to the World Economic Forum' latest Global Enabling
Trade Report.
World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers is a global organization
of the world's newspapers and news publishers that represents over 18,000
publications and 15,000 websites in 120 countries. It has a status of an official
consultant, which represents the interests of newspaper industry in UNESCO,
United Nations and the European Council.
