Relationships with other Organisations



The International Centre of Rural Broadcasting proposes, through the organisation of a documentation service, to promote the setting up of rural broadcasting services in all countries where they do not yet exist, in particular, by making known these organisations and the results achieved in the countries possessing such services; by making known the organisation of the most effective rural broadcasting services; by encouraging relations between the services; by facilitating the exchange of reviews, works and all publications regarding rural broadcasting, etc.


The financial question will be settled at the next General Assembly of the I.C.R.B. on the basis of the replies received by the Centre at that date in response to an enquiry now in progress, and of the members who have joined. The present expenses of organisation and propaganda are borne by the Federation internationale des Techniciens Agronomes.


At present "La Technique Agricole Internationale", organ of the Fédération internationale des Techniciens Agronomes, publishes a special section dealing with rural broadcasting.
