Quito, Jan. 29 (BNA): A delegation from the Emirates News Agency (WAM) has discussed ways of boosting cooperation with media organisations in Ecuador.


The discussions took place during visits that the WAM delegation, led by WAM Director-General Mohammed Jalal Al Rayssi to the cities of Quito and Guayaquil in Ecuador, to review the outcomes of the inaugural the Global Media Congress held in Abu Dhabi in November 2022.


The two sides also discussed the prospects for media cooperation between the entities of the two countries, and the participation of Ecuadorian media organisations in the 28th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that the UAE will host later this year.


The WAM delegation, accompanied by UAE Ambassador to Peru and Non-Resident Ambassador to Ecuador Mohammed Abdullah Al Shamsi, visited the headquarters of several media entities, including Comunica Empresa Publica, Teleamazonas, El Comercio, Ecuavisa TV, TC Television, RTS, TVCE, and El Universo Newspaper.


During its visits, WAM signed seven cooperation agreements with these entities to promote news exchange and media cooperation. The delegation also visited the headquarters of the Granasa Group.


Al Rayssi said that the huge success that the inaugural Global Media Congress achieved is a source of motivation to build on these accomplishments and enhance WAM's partnerships with international media organisations, including those in Ecuador, to develop a more comprehensive agenda for the next edition of the event.


The UAE is preparing to host COP28 and WAM is particularly keen on welcoming media organisations from Ecuador to cover the global event expected to be a turning point in the global climate action drive.
