The cooperation agreement covers exchanges of content for radio, television and multimedia as well as tri-media training programmes.

“This collaboration aims to strengthen the cultural dialogue between France and the Arab world, fostering the exchange of experience and know-how of the media domain between Qatar and France “, declared Mubarak Jaham Al Kuwari.

“I would like to thank the Qatar Media Corporation for this agreement which will allow us to develop strongly in a truly dynamic country in areas that are the essential purpose of the AEF merger: television, radio and multimedia“, declared Alain de Pouzilhac.

On January 15th 2011, a cooperation agreement was signed in Doha between RFI and QMC at the launch of Oryx FM, the first French-language radio station in a Gulf country.
