France’s AEF in deal with Qatar Media Corp

Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France (AEF), the umbrella organisation for France24, RFI and Monte Carlo Doualiya, has signed a deal with the Qatar Media Corporation (QMC) covering exchanges of content for radio, TV and the web as well as tri-media training programmes.

The latest agreement follows one in January between RFI and QMC at the launch of French-language radio station Oryx FM in Qatar.

“This collaboration aims to strengthen the cultural dialogue between France and the Arab world, fostering the exchange of experience and know-how of the media domain between Qatar and France,” said Mubarak Jaham Al Kuwari, executive chairman of QMC.

“I would like to thank the Qatar Media Corporation for this agreement which will allow us to develop strongly in a truly dynamic country in areas that are the essential purpose of the AEF merger: television, radio and multimedia,” said Alain de Pouzilhac, CEO of Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France.
