Doha: Cai Mingzhao, ex­ec­u­tive pres­i­dent of the World Me­dia Sum­mit (WMS) and pres­i­dent of Xin­hua News Agency, put for­ward three pro­pos­als at the open­ing ses­sion of the WMS 2016 on Sun­day to help WMS mech­a­nism play a larger role in the fu­ture.

Over 350 del­e­gates of me­dia out­lets from 100 coun­tries have gath­ered in the Qatari cap­i­tal of Doha for the two-day sum­mit that is hosted by Qatar-based Al Jazeera un­der the theme of “The Fu­ture of News and News Or­gan­i­sa­tions.” The meet­ing comes at a time when me­dia is un­der­go­ing pro­found changes and au­di­ence de­mands are in­creas­ingly di­ver­si­fied. Tra­di­tional me­dia faces ma­jor chal­lenges as well as un­prece­dented op­por­tu­ni­ties. In his speech ti­tled “Deep­en­ing Co­op­er­a­tion and Ex­changes, Fac­ing Our Fu­ture,” Mr Cai said the rapid de­vel­op­ment of in­for­ma­tion net­works and dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy is catalysing a rev­o­lu­tion in mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion and has brought about un­prece­dented op­por­tu­ni­ties for de­vel­op­ment.
