LONDON, December 1 /TASS/. Russia’s oldest and biggest national news agency TASS represented Russia at a meeting of the leaders of World Congress of News Agencies who gathered in the British capital on Monday to set the agenda for the 2016 WCNA congress.
Three blocks of issues were included in the agenda of the future congress: information agencies and the latest information technologies; competition and cooperation in the world media market; mutual relations between classical media and social networks. An agreement in principle was made to invite representatives of online media outlets to the WCNA congress.
WCNA leaders are planning to adopt a roadmap for preparation for the V World Congress at a meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan, in the early days of March 2015.
Baku is to host the World Congress of News Agencies in November 2016.
The first World Congress of News Agencies took place in Moscow in September 2004. The congress changed several venues in subsequent years: it was held in Spain in 2007; in Argentina - in 2010 and in Saudi Arabia - in 2013.
