11th World Meeting of Bulgarian Media Begins in Athens

Athens, November 5 (BTA) - Opening the 11th World Meeting of Bulgarian Media, hosted by the National University of Athens in the Greek capital, the Bulgarian Parliament's Culture and Media Committee Chair Polina Karastoyanova said the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) is an innovator, because 11 years ago it started building what is perhaps the most important bridge: the bridge of communication between Bulgaria and the world. Each of the 11 BTA-organized World Meetings of Bulgarian Media so far has added one more symbolic lane to this wide bridge, Karastoyanova said. These events have become "an institution which raises the right questions and seeks the answers," she said. "The fact that the rectors of five of the most prestigious Bulgarian universities have come to this meeting to talk about education shows that intellectuality is the largest territory where we can try to be better. If there is any point in a country's government, it is the promotion of culture and education," Karastoyanova said.
Bulgarian Ambassador to Greece Emilia Kraleva said the theme of the current meeting: "Media and Cultural Differences. Dialogue between Neighbours," makes for a very interesting discussion. "It will likely highlight our differences, but it will certainly help us recognize our similarities as well. This is how the dialogue between neighbours works," Kraleva said. "Bulgaria and Greece, which are so close together and yet travelled very different paths in their recent history, are now firmly standing together again. I can assure you, we have no intention of parting again - on the contrary, there is a growing number of questions which we can solve together in our shared existence as neighbours and Europeans," Ambassador Kraleva said.
