Baba Hamed Mohamed Fodil
Director, Le Quotidien d'Oran, Algeria

M. Fodil was "particularly interested in the discussions about print and online supplements, given that his country is not ready to fully comply with the new technologies." He would like for the Editors Forum to dedicate time to subjects specifically designed for newspapers coming from poor countries.

 

Ausra Leka
Editor in Chief, Kauno Diena, Lithuania

Ms Leka was particularly satisfied "with the contacts (she) could build with colleagues": she will keep in touch with the professionals she met at the Forum, in order to share ideas and experiences regarding projects (they have) in common." As a consequence of her participation to the Editors Forum she will "develop an online edition of (her) newspaper and a project aimed to young readers."

 

Tarek Atia
Assistant Editor in Chief, Al-Ahram Weekly, Egypt

The Editors Forum gave to M. Atia the input necessary to try a newsrooms convergence and to change the design of his newspaper. He advises for the future that the Forum foresees an event that brings together the WEPP participants in order to meet before the actual works begin.

 

M. Zurab Matcharadze
Editor in Chief, Resonasi/Resonance Newspaper, Georgia

As a consequence to his participation in the Editors Forum, M. Matcharadze will implement the online services of his newspaper. His suggestions to improve the WEPP are: "foreseeing more time for questions at the end of conferences and organizing an event that facilitates the initial contacts among WEPP participants."
