MIB Prakash Javadekar congratulates Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Sekhar Vempati

@shashidigital
Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has congratulated Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Sekhar Vempati on being elected as Vice President of Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. Mr Javadekar said, India will do its job well in this role. He thanked all members who voted in favour of India.
 
Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) is one of the largest broadcasting associations in the world. The election was held yesterday during the General Assembly of the Union which was held virtually due to COVID-19. Mr Vempati has been elected to the office of the Vice President, ABU for three years with immediate effect. 
 
Almost all of the Public Broadcasters of the member countries in the Asia Pacific region strongly supported the candidature of India’s Public Broadcaster which was forwarded by NHK Japan. The candidature of the nominee from China’s NRTA was unsuccessful, failing to garner support from any of the members, paving the way for CEO Prasar Bharati India’s election to the Vice Presidency of ABU. The Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union was formed in 1964 as a professional association of broadcasting organisations with over 286 members in 57 countries and regions, reaching the potential population of about three billion people.
