The main topics of the event, organized by the Information and Mass Communication Agency of Uzbekistan, are the establishment of effective communication, exchange of information and dialogue between the relevant state institutions of the Turkic States Organization countries. Turkic states are interested not only in the field of strengthening economic and cultural relations, but also in expanding cooperation in the field of information. This includes a joint fight against fake news and disinformation, and an operational dialogue between institutions. For this purpose, representatives of media and state institutions of member countries regularly participate in events (seminar, training, forum, etc.) held in Azerbaijan, Turkiye and Kazakhstan.

In the seminar, Rasim Bagirov, head of department at the Media Development Agency, made a presentation on media landscape in Azerbaijan, media development trends, and relations between state institutions and the media. Also, representatives from the relevant institutions of Turkiye, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan delivered country reports. The event will last until May 30.
