The government is going to launch a two-hour international news analysis programme on Bangladesh Television (BTV), said State Minister for Information Mohammad A Arafat on Thursday.

He came up with this announcement while talking to reporters after a meeting with Indian High Commissioner Pranay Kumar Verma in his office at the Secretariat on Thursday.

He said, " We have discussed cooperation on various issues, particularly about the international news analysis programme on BTV. Discussion was held on whether it is possible to cooperate with the Indian news agency ANI."

The state minister said, "Since BTV is shown in India, we will gradually increase the time of this news analysis. We will try to make it an international standard. There will be news from various South Asian countries. We would also try to attract Indian viewers so that they watch them," he added.

"Collaborating with the Indian Film and Television Institute, we have to see whether any more co-productions like 'Mujib: The Making of a Nation' film can be done or not."

The Indian institutions that are working on checking disinformation and propaganda, their experience, processes and methods will be exchanged between the two countries, he said

"We will try to gather as much as possible the experiences that India has in the field of film and television so that we can develop further in these fields," added the state minister.
