9th Oceanian Television Dialogue

Once a year this meeting convenes regional television network professionals in partnership with France Télévisions. Each understands the geographical isolation of the Oceanian states, which is why FIFO represents a unique and amazing platform for meetings and discussions in the Pacific. This symposium enables professionals to hold fruitful exchanges of views and contacts between specialists and regional partners to thus implement shared projects and create regional synergy.
