Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (October 27, 2015)  - Equipment worth more than 5 million Soms was provided within the framework of the UNDP Project “Media to support peace-building” with financial support of the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund aimed at increasing the role of the media in promotion of ethnic diversity, interethnic concord and national unity in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The virtual television studio will improve technical characteristics of the television program “Strategy 2017” and actualize visual imagery of commented events from the regions. Virtual TV studios in the next few years are capable to completely change the image of television, production principles and building TV programs.
One of important aspect of the project is to raise awareness of the population on the National Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Kyrgyz Republic and create a platform for discussion of its successful promotion at different levels.

The partners of the project are the Secretariat of the National Council on Sustainable Development, Office of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, the National Broadcasting Corporation (PTRC), TV and radio company “ElTR” and PRTRC “Yntymak”.
