An international conference to support public broadcasters in Egypt and Tunisia is being organized by UNESCO.

The aim of the meeting is to assess the media's needs and help the two countries develop a public broadcast service.

Jocelyne Sambira reports. 

Decision-makers and representatives of public broadcasting services from ten European countries are attending the conference in Paris on May 31.

The meeting will encourage media corporations and donors to support new initiatives, as well as draw up an action plan.

90% of households in Egypt and Tunisia have at least one television set.

Broadcast media, UNESCO says, can open dialogue and elicit peoples' participation in public life.
