Fujairah Media Group to set up TV and Radio stations in Central Equatoria State South Sudan following collaboration agreement

 

Fujairah Media Group (FMG), a Fujairah-based broadcasting organization formed as a joint venture between the Fujairah Cultural Authority and Arab International Media Services, has announced the recent signing of a protocol with Central Equatoria State, South Sudan, in which FMG has undertaken to set up a number of television and radio stations in the state, in addition to cooperating in other key areas. The agreement aims to build a strong social, cultural and media infrastructure in the new state, following its separation from North Sudan. Fujairah Media Group was chosen as the partner in this effort given the Group’s activities in South Sudan over the past few years. The protocol also covers the opening of a trade and services hub in the Emirate of Fujairah and three other agreements were signed between Fujairah Businesses and Central Equatoria State for a variety of industries during the same visit.



The agreement was signed by Mekki Abdulla, CEO, Fujairah Media Group and H.E Francis Barson Lado; Southern Sudan’s Minister of Information and Culture, in the presence of H.E Jacob Aligo Lo Lado, Minister of Finance and Economic Development, H.E Michelle Rebroto Kini Ligi, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, and Mr. Faraj Jumaa Zaid Ajuda, Manager of Broadcast and Transmission in the Southern Sudan Television and Radio Station.

The landmark agreement was signed during the recent visit of the Southern Sudanese delegation to the Emirate of Fujairah, where they were welcomed by H.H. Sheikh Hamad Bin Mohammed Bin Sharqi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Fujairah, in the presence of H.E Mohammed Saeed Al Dhanhani, Director of the Fujairah Amiri Diwan. The delegates expressed their gratitude for the warm welcome accorded to them by H.H. the Ruler of Fujairah and H.E. Al Dhanhani.

The members of the Southern Sudanese delegation also expressed their deep admiration for the Fujairah Media Group, represented by Mekki Abdulla, and highlighted FMG’s role in setting new standards in media and technology and in the process establishing itself as one of the most prominent and active media groups in the region.

The delegation also toured the facilities of Fujairah Television and Radio Network, and Local News in addition to the Fujairah Media Group broadcast facilities. They specifically commended the state-of-the-art facilities, and the expertise of the staff and management.

Following this agreement, Fujairah Media Group has sent a special delegation to Central Equatoria State to inspect the sites, study the conditions and determine the best method to be adopted to set up the required media stations and commence the training of the local staff.
