Dániel Papp, the chief executive of Hungary’s public media provider MTVA, discussed the possibility of expanding programme exchange, joint programme production and professional training with Mateusz Matyszkowicz, board member of Polish public TV company TVP, in Budapest on Friday.
“We share common cultural roots here in central Europe and we share the same views about the role of public media, and it is clear that, from this point of view, it can benefit both of us if we speak a common language,” Papp said, according to a statement released by MTVA’s press and marketing department.
“It can be beneficial from the point of view that we can produce content that can be used here, in Hungary, and in Poland as well.”
Matyszkowicz said he learnt of new technologies upon visiting MTVA’s sports and news studios and new ideas about a current affairs channel’s operation.
They also discussed the possibility of speeding up the exchange of news and producing joint content, the statement said.
