An opportunity for collective reflection

The Tashkent Regional Forum offered participants a unique opportunity to share their experiences and discuss the challenges facing journalism in the region. It laid the foundations for future cooperation between French and Central Asian media and institutions.

The Forum was also an opportunity to propose innovative solutions for restoring confidence in journalism and combating misinformation. Finally, this regional event enabled the journalists invited to extend their regional network and, ultimately, to have access to tools enabling them to increase their audience.
