Gulf economic media forum opens in Dammam

RIYADH, Feb 13 (KUNA) -- The 2nd Gulf Economic Media Forum on Wednesday kick-started in the eastern Saudi city of Dammam.
In a keynote speech during the two-day forum, Chairman of the Saudi Radio and Television Authority Abdulrahman Al-Hazza warned of using social communication networks in fomenting sedition and spreading rumors.
He said the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states have managed to fend off the reflections of the global financial crisis.
He lauded the GCC member states' achievements in the world of information and communications, which have enabled audiovisual media to reach out the whole world and, thence, to deliver information to economists in a swift and reliable manner.
The Saudi media official stressed the significant role by economic media in presenting fruitful thoughts and visions with a view to pushing forward the wheel of development in the GCC countries for the sake of sustainable development. (end) ad.mt KUNA 132254 Feb 13NNNN
