PM Borissov, Cristophe Deloire Discuss Ways to Boost Media Freedom in Bulgaria

03.12.2019
December 3 (BTA) - Prime Minister Boyko Borissov had a meeting with Christophe Deloire, Director General of Reporters Without Borders, at the Council of Ministers on Tuesday. During the talk, Borissov said that he values highly the dialogue with the NGO sector on a topic that is vital to any democratic society -- the freedom of speech, Cabinet press office said in a release. Borissov and Deloire discussed the possibilities for Bulgaria to improve its ranking according to the World Press Freedom Index, compiled by Reporter Without Borders every year, the release says. Borissov presented the measures recently adopted by the government, guaranteeing timely and unhindered access to information in printed editions. This will be possible through the Bulgarian postal service "Bulgarian Posts" which will be doing the distribution and sales of printed editions across Bulgaria. This cabinet decision will improve the current market competition, and publishers of printed editions will be reaching the end consumers within clearly predefined parameters, the release says. Borissov pointed out that thanks to the work of Bulgaria's EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, this country has been actively participating in the development of various measures against disinformation and fake news which he characterized as a real threat, concluding that fake news and disinformation are undermining the foundations of trust among people and in the institutions. The Prime Minister invited the representatives of Reporters Without Borders to contribute to the decision making with suggestions for legislative amendments to guarantee independence for the media and accurate, unbiased information for the public.
