Challenges of digital communication debated at a colloquium in Cuba

Havana, March 6 (Prensa Latina) Cuban experts and experts from several countries will analyze the challenges of digital communication in the third edition of the Patria International Colloquium, which will be held here from March 18 to 20, its organizers reported today.

The event will take place during the Cuban Press Day and will feature the participation of nearly 100 international representatives from 28 countries, from four continents.

The president of the Union of Journalists of Cuba (UPEC), Ricardo Ronquillo, reported at a press conference that the Caribbean nation is immersed in a process of transformation in the press system, with the objective of changing editorial management models and technology, in the middle of a communication war.

Ronquillo explained that along with the transformation in the media, a counteroffensive has begun to articulate Cuba’s communicative experience with other leftist ones in the world.

Given this scenario, he added, the UPEC proposed the holding of the Patria International Colloquium, which is about to reach its third edition, with notable advances in the dimension of the event.

He explained that the event will take place at the Pabexpo fairgrounds in this capital in parallel to the 19th edition of the 2024 International Computer Convention and Fair, due to the importance of uniting the technological field with that of content creation.

He stressed that this edition of the Colloquium will be a unique opportunity to explore the relationship between new technologies and communication, given that in addition to conferences, workshops and exhibitions with experts from around the world, Patria will have a presentation room for innovative projects and an immersive (virtual reality).

Ronquillo added that the participants will address the need for a new international order for information and communication, as well as rescue the Mcbride report, issued by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 1980.

Likewise, solutions will be sought to the existing asymmetries in the communication field, especially in events such as the genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

He reported that exhibitors from the pan-Arab channel Al Mayadeen, the Chinese television network CCTV and the multinational network Telesur will also participate in the event.
