DTT: Côte d' Ivoire learns in China


The Ivorian Minister of Communication, Affoussiata Bamba-Lamine has lead a delegation to China in order to prepare Ivory Coast for the transition to digital terrestrial television (DTT).

His delegation met with Chinese Minister of Administration of the press, publishing, radio, film and television, Nie Chenxi.

Visits were also held in four Chinese companies that have already led to securing DTT in several countries around the world. It is envisaged that the DTT training of Ivorian professionals will take place in China .

Côte d'Ivoire intends to comply with June 2015 deadline set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for the migration to DTT (TNT in French).

Since October 2013, the country established its National migration Committee to DTT. Excluding China, it multiplies contacts with potential technical partners, including France, Spain and Britain.
