1st Afghan media exhibition begins in Kabul
Organized by “Modern Method” advertising company, 70 media outlets have displayed their products and programmes at the show.
Modern Method director Ahmad Samir Matin said the three-day event was aimed to strengthen and convince the Afghan media to secure the national interest.
Speaking on the occasion, Pajhwok Director Danish Karokhel said the exhibition was the first of its kind in Afghanistan in last 13 years, showcasing products and programmes of Afghan media for its participants and the public.
He said 13 years ago there was only one state-controlled radio station, but today approximately 100 TV channels, 250 radio stations and 1000 newspapers and printed media were operational in Afghanistan.
“In my view, the Afghan media has not only made achievements in terms of quantity, but they have won people’s love and reception.”
He said the Afghan media had convinced people to work for the country’s development and itself played a pivotal role in Afghanistan’s reconstruction and rebuilding.
Uqab Digital Company head Andi Wilmers said the Afghan media could play a key role in shaping Afghanistan’s future. He said Afghan TV channels would have high quality broadcasts in future and his company would cover 85 percent of Afghanistan’s populations within the next three years.
Pajhwok marketing officer Maseh Mazeed said his team had been tasked with presenting information about the agency at the exhibition and establishing close relations and coordination with other media outlets.
He said Pajhwok mobile phone application had been installed to many customers free of cost in order they could get access to news and incidents taking place throughout Afghanistan.
