The director of Iran’s Digital Media Regulatory Authority (Satra), Sadeq Emamian, met and held negotiations with the ambassador of China to Iran, Chang Hua.
Referring to the fact that Satra's task is to develop Iran's all-inclusive audiovisual media industry, Emamian said, “During the last two years, Satra has been in contact with more than 40 Western media regulators.”
He also noted that the expansion of cooperation with the Eastern Asian countries, especially China, that have made significant progress in their media systems, is part of Satra's agenda.
“Economic cooperation of Iran and China can help the countries’ media grow in all areas,” the Iranian official said, adding that both countries have some significant common concerns in political and social fields.
Emamian also proposed the concluding of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation between Iran and China in the field of Internet-based media.
Chang welcomed Iran’s proposal on the MoU between the two countries, adding, “We are ready to provide Iranian audiovisual media with a number of Chinese series with no charges. And we welcome the screening of Iranian films and series on Chinese platforms.”
