INFORMATION Union Minister Dr Pe Myint attended a seminar in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday to seek ways to amend the Broadcasting Media Law.
In his speech, Dr Pe Myint said that the meeting was aimed at opening discussion on ways that could ensure fair play for existing and potential broadcasters alike.
According to the union minister, the law was passed in last August and is designed to enable broadcasters to work in harmony.
The discussions attracted active participation from parliamentary representatives, representatives from the National League for Democracy and officials from foreign and local broadcasting media.
The meeting reached an agreement on the comprehensive inclusion of representatives from the ministry, bill committees of the Amyotha Hluttaw and the Pyithu Hluttaw and a team of media experts.
A broadcast council will be established to handle necessary amendments to the Broadcasting Media Law and formulate its rules and regulations.
The meeting also agreed to allow potential broadcasters to use the infrastructure of Myanmar Radio and Television even during the amendment process, as part of giving incentive to new broadcasters.
