CAPE TOWN (Xinhua) – Leaders of media organisations from BRICS countries met here on Wednesday, seeking closer cooperation so as to make their voice heard on major international issues.

In a welcome message at the 3rd BRICS Media Forum, South African organisers said that media cooperation will contribute to helping change the narrative of the work BRICS countries are doing.

The forum is co-hosted by South Africa’s Independent Media and China’s Xinhua News Agency and themed as “BRICS Media Cooperation – Fostering an Inclusive, Just World Order”.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Iqbal Surve, executive chairman of South Africa’s Independent Media, said the forum, aimed to increase information sharing, was held on a special occasion as it came just days before the 10th BRICS Summit that will be held on July 25-27 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
