TVNZ Committed to Cooperation with Industry

TVNZ Committed to Cooperation with Industry

TVNZ's CEO, Ian Fraser, has reiterated the Company's determination to support and promote New Zealand talent and creative resources.

Ian Fraser says TVNZ has taken on board the constructive suggestions from today's Screen Production Industry Taskforce report. He says he is well aware that the Company needs to do more to cement its relationship with the independent screen production industry and is very focused on that objective.

"In fact this year we have been putting considerable effort into improving our engagement with the creative community. We are proactively communicating our plans for future television content and working on greater transparency and rigor in our commissioning process".

Ian Fraser says TVNZ is absolutely committed to the Company's Statement of Intent to work cooperatively and cohesively with the independent production sector and "that is exactly what we mean to do".

The TVNZ CEO says the Company will be building on the relationship and further refining its genre content plans at the Industry's Conference in Wellington later this month.
