DEVELOPING MASS MEDIA IN ASIA, PAPERS OF UNESCO MEETING AT BANGKOK, JANUARY 1960. REPORTS AND PAPERS ON MASS COMMUNICATION, NO. 30.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
IN ASIA, THE MOST POPULOUS REGION OF THE WORLD, THE COUNTRIES SUFFERING MOST FROM POVERTY AND ILLITERACY ARE ALSO THE POOREST IN COMMUNICATION FACILITIES. PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED TO DEVELOP NEWSPAPER AND PERIODICAL CIRCULATION, NEWS AGENCIES, TELECOMMUNICATIONS, RADIO BROADCASTING, FILMS, AND TELEVISION. JOURNALISTS NEED TO BE TRAINED IN ALL THE INFORMATION MEDIA. LOCAL LANGUAGE NEWSPAPERS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED, READER PREFERENCE IN MAGAZINES SHOULD BE DETERMINED, LOW-COST RADIO RECEIVERS SHOULD BE PROVIDED, HIGH PRIORITY SHOULD BE GIVEN TO DEVELOPMENT OF TELECOMMUNICATION FACILITIES, NATIONAL NEWS AGENCIES SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED AND SHOULD COOPERATE. GOVERNMENTS SHOULD ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT IN INDUSTRIES NECESSARY TO THE INFORMATION MEDIA. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS 1605.B FROM NATIONAL DISTRIBUTORS OF UNESCO PUBLICATIONS OR FROM THE MASS COMMUNICATION CLEARING HOUSE, UNESCO, PLACE DE FONTENOY, PARIS-7E, FRANCE, FOR $1.50. (MF)
