SCO countries to create television, portal in Russia in 2014

A television channel and portal for the countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will be created in Russia to promote ideas and technologies in the sphere of business, Russian State Duma deputy Andrei Svintsov told reporters at the SCO young people's forum on Monday.

A television channel and portal for the countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will be created in Russia to promote ideas and technologies in the sphere of business, Russian State Duma deputy Andrei Svintsov told reporters at the SCO young people's forum on Monday.

The television channel and portal will be created in Russia in 3-4 months and will be functioning in all languages of the member countries by the next SCO young people's forum, he said.

"We have decided to create a unified SCO television channel and SCO portal. They will be in the languages of the SCO countries and will promote the ideas and technologies of our businessmen. It is being done to ensure that businessmen who need consultations on entering the market and offering their products to partners can communicate via this channel and information portal. The channel will also broadly report on the positions of the countries' administrations on these issues," Svintsov said.

The biggest problem in the creation of these resources is the language barrier, he said.

"We are hoping that our Chinese partners will help us with that: they have unique technologies. We will be happy if they send an agreement with us on their intentions to participate in their creation. The television channel and portal will work and bring practical contracts and deals," the parliamentarian said.

The portal will be available on the Internet and the television channel will broadcast using satellite communication facilities. As to the issues addressed by the new resources, the organizers intend to make it close to the quality parameters of Russia's RBC television.

The Altai young people's forum 'Points of Growth', and a SCO young people's forum are being held in the resort city of Belokurikha, Altai Territory, on August 25-30. This is the sixth Altai Points of Growth forum and the second SCO young people's forum. This year, both forums are being attended by over 1,500 people from forty regions of Russia and twenty countries of the world and address issues relating to young people's enterprise.
