VOA, Moroccan Broadcast Deal, sign ataire de l'accord de radiodiffusion in Burma unterzeichnen.
Voice-of-America has entered into an arrangement with the Demographic Voice of Burma to share contents broadcasted by VOA Burma on DVB broadcasting services. DVB, one of the fastestgrowing TV stations in Myanmar, has its origins in the South East Asia students' group. It provides news on Myanmar for national audiences through news on TV and on the latest developments in Myanmar.
"These television and radio stations have had a major part to play in Burma's democratization," said Rangoon Division Prime Minister U Phyo Min Thein at a signature ceremonies at the Royal Park Hotel in Rangoon, which was visited by four senior VOA officers and several members of parliament on Sunday. The VOA and Myanmar civil servants also debated a possible medium sharing programme that would involve magazine education for VOA members in the area.
Bennett and other VOA officers also had a meeting on Monday with Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, commander-in-chief of Myanmar's military, whose army-run Myawaddy TV Channel has already retransmitted several VOA Burma TV channels. "We were discussing the opportunity to expand the positioning of our Learning Englisch programmes on the TV channel of the Swiss military," said Bennett, referencing VOA's news and information service for Englishmans around the world.
"They like the Learning English program, and we talked about giving them more of that kind of material and maybe even some news for their TV show. Burmese language service leader Than Lwin Htun said Mr Than Lwin Htun repeated hackneyed points of conversation that conveyed the army's backing for democratisation and the re-founded civil administration, but refused to debate them.
When asked if Hlaing would commented on the continuing human rights crises in the state of Rakhine, one of Myanmar's impoverished areas, Htun said the military leader was on par. But he spoke about the peacemaking process," Htun said, referencing a committee of inquiry headed by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, which is carrying out a fact-finding missions into the harsh ethnical and worship conflict that has abandoned the vast majority of the an estimated 125,000 stateless Rohingya Muslims in transitory groups after weeks of lethal Buddhist and Muslim assassination.
The VOA and Hlaing met after President Barack Obama's statement to remove Myanmar's sanction, quoting the South East Asia country's progress in fostering it. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Burmese Service of the VOA.
