During the opening of the 18th AWMC conference, held at the Madaba Institute for Mosaic Art and Restoration in partnership with the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum, Princess Basma spoke at the opening ceremony to attendees on the role of digital media in enhancing change.

Arab women have made a remarkable and prominent presence in the media field in all its forms, including news production and program content, said Princess Basma.

An Arab media woman, said Princess Basma, plays a role no less important and dangerous than her male counterpart when delivering a story, especially in war zones and hotspots, noting the many female journalists killed in the line of duty.

HRH also praised the AWMC’s choice to host the conference in Madaba, as it was chosen as the 2022 capital of Arab tourism.

At the conference, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Nayef Al-Fayez pointed to the positive impact of the partnership between the media and national institutions working on promoting tourism and Arab countries' cultures, attracting more tourists, and direct and indirect investment.

Minister of Culture Haifa Al-Najjar, Governor of Madaba Nayef Al-Hidayat, and head of office and UNESCO Representative to Jordan Min Jeong Kim attended the conference.
