ALMAGUL AKHMETZHANOVA, CHAIRWOMAN, KHABAR AGENCY:
- One of the main achievements of Khabar Agency in 2017 was the transition of the Kazakh TV to the broadcasting format with separate audio tracks. The channel content was fully adapted and translated into the multichannel broadcasting format. This allowed watching the channel in Kazakhstan and worldwide 24 hours a day in three languages. In 2017 we opened one more correspondent point in Uzbekistan, we also continued enlarging the network of freelancers which allowed expanding the coverage to nearly 10 different countries.
