In­ter­net me­dia fo­rum set in Rus­sia

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - TOP NEWS - By REN QI renqi@chi­nadaily.com.cn

In­ter­net me­dia from China and Rus­sia soon will con­tinue their com­mu­ni­ca­tion at the 2nd Chi­naRus­sia In­ter­net Me­dia Fo­rum and China-Rus­sia Youth In­no­va­tion Union, start­ing on Sept 24 in Ros­tov-on-Don, Rus­sia.

The event is a con­tin­u­a­tion of last year’s fo­rum in Guangzhou, Guang­dong prov­ince.

“The fo­rum of in­ter­net me­dia en­abled China and Rus­sia to find new com­mon in­ter­ests and strengthen the China-Rus­sia Com­pre­hen­sive Strate­gic Part­ner­ship of Co­or­di­na­tion,” said Xu Yonghong, head of the Pub­lic­ity Depart­ment and mem­ber of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the CPC Guang­dong Com­mit­tee.

“New me­dia in China and Rus­sia are play­ing a more im­por­tant role in bi­lat­eral in­for­ma­tion co­op­er­a­tion,” said Alexan­der Prosvirkin, Rus­sia’s con­sul gen­eral in Guangzhou.

Govern­ment of­fi­cials, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from main­stream me­dia and in­ter­net com­pa­nies, and schol­ars will par­tic­i­pate in the four-day fo­rum.

Alexey Volin, deputy min­is­ter of tele­com and mass com­mu­ni­ca­tions, will lead the Rus­sian del­e­ga­tion. Among those ex­pected to at­tend are ex­ec­u­tives from Yan­dex, Rus­sia’s big­gest search en­gine; Ram­bler & Co, the coun­try’s lead­ing web por­tal; and in­ter­net com­pany Mail.Ru Group.

Par­tic­i­pants will share views on top­ics such as new forms and op­por­tu­ni­ties of in­ter­net me­dia and in­ter­net in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity.

They will also dis­cuss over-the-top con­tent ser­vices de­liv­ered by high­speed in­ter­net con­nec­tion, as well as dis­cussing mo­bile plat­forms, new me­dia en­ter­tain­ment con­tent, news dis­tri­bu­tion, and youth and new me­dia. “Over-the-top” means any app or ser­vice that pro­vides a prod­uct over the in­ter­net, by­pass­ing tra­di­tional dis­tri­bu­tion, ac­cord­ing to Te­cho­pe­dia.

A high­light will be the IPDC talks, a high-level speech se­ries launched by UNESCO’s In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme for the De­vel­op­ment of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

There also will be ex­hi­bi­tion games among top Chi­nese and Rus­sian FIFA and DOTA es­ports play­ers. DOTA is the on­line game De­fense of the An­cients.

The fo­rum is or­ga­nized by Don State Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity and chi­nadaily.com.cn. It is a key project of the 2016-2017 Chi­naRus­sia Me­dia Ex­change Year.

The ex­change “pro­vides fine op­por­tu­ni­ties for bi­lat­eral prac­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion,” said Yu Qingchu, ed­i­tor-inchief of Peo­ple’s Daily On­line.
