With our partners of the EU Media Advocacy Group where our AEJ Belgium president Lieven Taillie represents AEJ International we ask the upcoming Germany Presidency to go for an ambitious the EU’s long-term budget (Multi-annual Financial Framework – MFF) that reserves enough means to uphold #MediaFreedom and enough funds to develop further qualitative journalism! #EU2020DE

“We ask you to support our call to EU Member States to adopt an ambitious MFF, which will strengthen the media sector and support independent journalism,” reads the letter sent on Thursday (18 June).

“The budget allocated to Creative Europe must be significantly increased with regard to media pluralism, quality (investigative, local, and innovative) journalism, and media literacy,” it adds.
