Nationalist Party leadership candidate Alex Perici Calascione has suggested that the party’s television station should collaborate with foreign television stations in a bid to promote cultural and financial interest in Malta.

“Net TV should invest in programmes focused on investigative journalism, as well as cultural and historical programmes,” Perici Calascione said, addressing a press conference in front of media.link. “We believe that certain, high-quality Net TV productions can be broadcasted on foreign stations, and thus can assist in promoting and raising interest, as well as encouraging investment in Malta.”

“This should be done by Net TV entering into a collaboration with foreign stations. In this way, local high-quality and interesting productions, in particular those relating to natural history and culture, can find foreign markets.”

Perici Calascione added that heavy investment should be made into Net journalists, as well as into the latest technological tools.

“Particular investment should be made in internet-based telecommunication systems, particularly the smart phone. It is an established fact that the public is moving away from traditional media and is opting for more instantaneous news sources,” he said.

“This investment should be made after a detailed analysis so that the Nationalist Party can increase its relevance in society and disseminate its message through the most effective means.”

Perici Calascione said that his plan for PN media was focused on continuity from the restructuring current PN leader Simon Busuttil had done over the last four years.
