President of India Pratibha Patil will be inaugurating the annual congress and forum of the World Association of Newspapers (WAN) and the World Editors Forum (WEF), to be held in Hyderabad from November 30 to December 3, 2009. This was shared by Hormusji Cama, President, Indian Newspaper Society (INS), and Chairman, Bombay Samachar.
Cama told exchange4media that preparations were on full swing for the mega event, being held in India for the first time, and that he was looking forward to enthusiastic participation from the industry.
The conference, which has previously been held in Gothenberg, Sweden, Cape Town and Moscow, is hosted jointly with a local newspaper publishers association – this year it is the Indian Newspaper Society – which usually takes on a large part of the fund raising and sponsorship requirements.
