WASHINGTON, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —A new Russo-U.S. program envisaging exchange of commencing journalists is to be approved at a second session of a sub- group for the mass media, established in the framework of U.S. - Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission for cooperation. The sub-group will meet in Moscow in the beginning of October. The program of the exchange will be undertaken in 2012-2013, the U.S. State Department said in a press release on Wednesday.
The organizers of the project are the Union of Journalists of Moscow and an International Centre or Journalists in Washington. Incidentally, candidates to participate in the new program will not be selected out of newsmen and editors from Moscow and Washington only. The number of journalists participating in the program from both sides will be equal. A U.S. foundation established to support the mass media and promote development of professional journalism will give administrative and financial support to the project.
The sub-group for the mass media first met in Boston in March 2011. Russia had an impressive representation at the Boston meeting, including editors- in- chief of a number of leading printed and electronic media.
The next meeting of the sub- group which is to be held in Moscow will be attended by eleven media leaders from the United States representing the Newspaper Association of America, independent agencies, profile public organizations and several U. S. journalist schools.
The Itar-Tass news agency is the organizer of the new media conference which will be held on the premises of Itar-Tass and Russian State University for the Humanities.
