Norway, Indonesia Co-Sponsor The Global Inter-Media Dialogue

The President of Indonesia, Dr Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Prime Minister of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg are now co-sponsoring to promote an Inter-Media Dialogue by facilitating the media conference on Bali during September 1-2, 2006.
The two countries will share a common goal to contribute to bridging gaps between different religions, cultures and people.
“Globalization has made us more inter-dependent, but the world remains fraught with conflict, tension and misunderstanding. The recent cartoon controversy reminded us not only of how small our world has become, but also of the powerful impact the media has on the world’s communities. It may be an indication of new challenges lying ahead,” states in the official site of the Global Inter-Media Dialogue.
The Global Inter-Media Dialogue will be a forum for leading media actors from more than 40 different countries and cultures to discuss ways and means of promoting freedom of expression and greater tolerance. The dialogue will give participants on outstanding opportunity to exchange experiences, and define the challenges and issues confronting the media in the 21st century.
