The PS advised the Board to continue aligning its programs and activities to the Government’s PLAN and the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) under the 5th Pillar, and not to relent on ensuring that children are protected from exposure to inappropriate audio-visual content, as well as endeavouring to create a facilitative regulatory environment.
The Board in collaboration with relevant stakeholders is committed to contributing towards the growth of the Creative industry even as it regulates content.
