MEDIA VS BUSINESS: PARTNERS OR RIVALS

17:00-18:15 Pavilion 4, Conference Hall 4.1
The global media landscape is undergoing dramatic changes. Each year sees new media and social networks playing an increasingly prominent role in creating and sharing information, as well as establishing a direct dialogue between different sections of society. Are they a harbinger of a gradual decline in traditional media as an effective means of interaction between business, government and society? Heads of global news agencies will meet to discuss who will be behind the global information content in the near future, what is the impact of the global news agenda on key economic processes, how unbiased media coverage of economic events really is, and if news is truly a partner of or a rival to business.

Highlights

Mission of the media today is the same as it was 170 years ago, and it is to inform the world, and that the means of searching for the truth and reporting facts, not opinions.

The truth is we are neither partners, no rivals to business. Role of media is to provide a modern, full and accurate report that customers can use to make the right decisions.
