Polish govt prepares law on media de-concentration

Monday 8 May 2017 | 12:49 CET | News
The Polish Government is working on a legislation on media de-concentration, reports Media2.pl. The draft act will be ready by the end of June. Cezary Kazmierczak, Chairman of the Association of Employers and Entrepreneurs, stressed that a broad public discussion will precede adoption of the act. The aim of the act is to restrict the share of foreign capital in the media market and increase the share of domestic capital in the national media. The Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage has been inspired by similar legislation in France and Germany.
