More than 600 journalists to cover event

posted on 18/12/2005: 1984 views

More than 600 foreign and local journalists have converged here to cover the summit amid tight security.

The media corps here includes TV crews, regional and international news agencies and reporters and photographers of daily newspapers in the GCC countries.

Almost all the major regional media organisations and international news agencies, such as Reuters, AFP and AP, are present to cover the summit, which is likely to discuss key issues such as the regional labour market, political reforms, Iran's occupation of UAE islands, terrorism, the intra-GCC rail network, free movement of citizens of member states within the region and trade pacts with European countries and the United States.

A massive media centre with more than 60 internet-connected computer terminals with faxes, photocopy machines and telephones with free international call links has been set up in the Liwa Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel, about 200 metres from the main summit venue, the Emirates Palace hotel.

Special arrangements have been made for the media to cover the event at the media centre with the help of live telecasts on two huge TV screens.

Almost the entire first floor of the Hilton, where its banquet and conference halls are located, has been turned into a mini-media city. Six GCC national news agencies, including Emirates News Agency (WAM), set up their offices in the Terrace Hall of the hotel, with all the communication facilities available to them.

Similarly, the organisers also set up a mini TV studio for interviews in Das Hall, and Fahd Hall was converted into an editing room for TV journalists.

Several information desks with literature and books on the GCC countries and the council's previous meetings and achievements have also been made available for the journalists and guests.

Special transportation arrangements were also made for shuttle journalists and other guests between the two hotels. (The Gulf News)
