Media Development Agency
The publication of a paper on the Media Development Agency is likely to be published shortly. This position paper follows the publication of a discussion paper earlier in the year, which proposed the establishment of an independent agency to support small and non-profit media. Individuals, companies and organisations can make submissions. The announcement of the launch of the position paper will appear at www.gcis.gov.za
It has been suggested that the media industry could contribute to funding the agency, along with the government and donor organisations. We have therefore formed a sub-committee to co-ordinate the NAB response, which will consists of Lara Kantor, Anton Harber, Zane Ibrahim and Randall Abrahams.
