Sunday, July 2, 2017 - 15:55

The 14th Eurasian Media Forum took place in the capital of Kazakhstan. The event began on June 22 and ended on June 24. More than 500 delegates representing 60 countries of the world took part in the 2017 forum. Together they discussed the topical issues for the entire world community, such as: the Syrian crisis, the concept of “green economy,” security in social networks and information attacks. In addition, they talked about the activities of the National Welfare Fund Samruk-Kazyna and the possibilities of increasing its effectiveness, comparing it the indicators of major similar funds across the world.

 

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said, “Only an open dialog that is respectful of others' points of view will help to restore global confidence in order to solve the problems faced by millions of people. The mass media will have to become the leaders of this process, focusing their attention on the processes of uniting peoples and countries.”

 

The chairman of the forum organizing committee, deputy of the upper chamber of the parliament of Kazakhstan (the Senate) Dariga Nazarbayeva, spoke about the increasing role of the media and the need for them to fulfill the functions of uniting and educating viewers and readers around the world.

 

"Traditionally, the Organizing Committee brought out for discussion the most acute problems faced the modern world. Unfortunately, their number is growing today. The issues concerning journalistic ethics are becoming more acute. Those who choose this profession, the task of which is to inform and educate the society, should think about adopting an oath similar to the Hippocratic one,” she said.
