‘Extra challenging time’

In her remarks, Romualdez said the conference would provide news publishers and executives with ideas on sustainable business models and monetization opportunities as well as best practices on digital transformation.

“It’s an extra challenging time for all of us in media with the constant rise in cost of our resources, the ever changing media landscape where the lines of discipline have been blurred, where everyone can be a content creator but most playing with a different set of rules, giving rise to fake news and disinformation. Internally we ask ourselves how we manage people from different generations and varying perspectives, externally there’s also the imminent challenge of the end of third-party cookies and the list goes on and on,’’ she said.
