Mrs. Milena Harito invited to a conversation with communication students
The Minister of Innovation and Public Administration, Mrs. Milena Harito, participated in an open lecture with the students of the Department of Communication Sciences. They discussed concerning the new legal framework for the regulation of online media.
The Rector of Bedër University, Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Gjana and the Head of the Department of Communication Sciences, Dr. Ramadan Çipuri participated in the activity among the numerous students and professors.
During the discussion with the students, Mrs. Harito discussed about different legal aspects about online media such as the changes on public behaviour and transaction in web media and web portals that follow this law, identification of every online service, automatic filtering of specific contents, acknowledgment of the Albanian language by Google for its advertising platforms, provision of Albanian portals with additional incomes etc. Being ascertained that the Albanian speaking portals have expanded considerably the last 3-4 years, this is done in order to further strengthening them altogether.
“As regards to e-commerce, it is not a new invention we are doing. It is a European directive that exists in Western countries, and that is, at the same time, under a constant evolution. We are enabling the approximation of the developments of this directive even in Albania.”- said Mrs. Harito.
The activity proceeded with numerous questions by the attendants that were interested about the various aspects regarding the developments that will follow this law in terms of online informing.
