This year ABU General Assembly(GA) and its affiliated events will be hosted by Prasar Bharati.

Kim said “KBS will contribute and lead the development of the broadcasters in the Asia Pacific region by sharing its content production know-how and broadcasting technology development experience, such as UHD 4K ATSC 3.0 through the participation in the ABU executive board.

KBS CEO, Kim Eui Chul continued with showing his special appreciation for Indian partner and expectation about more possibilities with potential partners, “India has been an important partner for KBS in broadcasting culture exchange. In particular, Prasar Bharati, who is hosting this year G.A. has been developing cooperation in content exchange on digital platforms between Korea and India.KBS’ international channel ‘KBS World’ has been broadcasting through India’s largest satellite broadcasting platform, DD Free Dish and Prasar Bharti`s international broadcasting channel, DD India, has been transmitted through KBS digital platform MyK since 2019 year. With this year ABU`s GA event as an opportunity, we plan to broaden the scope of cooperation with Indian member companies in more diverse fields. The 60th ABU Seoul General Assembly, which is being held by KBS next year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of public broadcasting, will serve as an opportunity to forge new partnerships with various member companies in India.”
