Pappas: Everything is possible when the political will exists
All the necessary conditions that will allow the TV market and TV landscape to take steps forward into the future are in place, Digital Policy Minister Nikos Pappas stated on Thursday, after the expiry of the deadline for submitting bids in a TV broadcasting licence tender.

“We have been informed about the developments and they seem very positive. The National Council for Radio and Television has organised a robust and concrete process in a very short time. I believe that we will very quickly enter a phase where the TV landscape is regulated and there are prospects to expand the advertising market, while based on the existing law there will be an increase in the job positions in television… I believe this proves that everything is possible when the requisite political will is present and there is readiness and alertness on the part of institutional agents and regulatory authorities,” he stated.
