The Cyprus syndrome, withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan, information security, media trends of the 21st century and many other issues will top the agenda of the 2013 EAMF. The Speakers of the Media Forum will involve Deputy Prime Minister of Greece T. Pangalos, presidential candidate of the Islamic Republic of Iran H. Amirahmadi, General Secretary of Israeli Press Council A. Bachar, member of British Parliament G. Galloway, Minister-Political Affairs Advisor to Afghan President M. Maroufi and others.

Delegates from more than 40 countries, including the most prominent representatives of international media domain, took part in EAMF 2013. Meetings of journalists from various corners of the world spanning Iran and the United Kingdom, Palestine and Russia are held at EAMF in an open and friendly manner. Delegates from over 50 countries have already registered to participate in this year's Forum.

- We are confident that the new milestone of Eurasian Media Forum, as in previous years, will be abundant in bright colours of lively discussions and constructive debates, - the organisers of the Media Forum believe. As is well-known, the core challenge facing us all today lies precisely in the domain of ideological foundation of modern society and world order. The crisis served to lay bare problems which had been chosen to be ignored amid ever expanding consumption. However, the concept of value of justice and morality cannot be any longer perceived as secondary to the importance of economic growth. Thus the talk of price and meaning of economic well-being amounts not so much to a discourse about current affairs, as to the future of our children, our countries and nations. The Eurasian Media Forum serves as an efficient platform for such a discussion. Surely, the agenda of the forthcoming Forum won't be able to touch on all the problems of modern world; however, the uppermost trends of the forum's agenda have been captured fairly accurately. The most important thing is that the Eurasian Media Forum, as in previous years, initiates a fair and open discussion which might, perhaps, continue at other levels.

We would like to bring to you attention the fact that three days have left before the closure of registration of EAMF participants.
