The Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014. The union is driven by the Asia Pacific values of harmony and collaboration to promote the collective interests of 260 television and radio broadcast members from 63 countries.

Fifty years ago it was the vision of Mr Yoshinori Maeda, then President of the Japanese broadcaster NHK, to create a broadcasting union that would unite Asia and the Pacific.

In its first year seventeen national broadcasters representing countries as diverse as India, Vietnam, Pakistan, Korea, Malaysia, Western Samoa, Fiji and New Zealand signed up as full members and the ABC hosted the inaugural ABU General Assembly in Sydney in November 1964.

SOLIDLY UNITED

At the time, Mr Maeda said “I believe we have to declare the path of our union and impress the entire world with the broad fact that the Asia Pacific region is now solidly united.”

Having recently retired from the Managing Director's position at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Sir Charles Moses took on the role as inaugural Secretary General.

“We have a common bond as professional broadcasters. Each of us seeks to make use of the broadcast media of radio and television, not for personal ends but for a high purpose, the good of the people whom we are privileged to serve”, Sir Charles said at that first General Assembly.

Radio Pakistan’s Director General at the time, B.P. Bhatt, summed up the potential of the union: “I think there is a great future for collaboration through the union, program exchanges, secondment of personnel, regulation of frequencies under co-ordinated plans, and above all the promotion of those ethical and social values of mankind that all good broadcasting must foster, encourage and uphold."

FOCUS ON TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

One of the union’s major initiatives, the Asia Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD) came to fruition in 1977.  Australian Hugh Leonard is the ABU’s longest serving Secretary General (1985-2002) and says “staff training was seen as a priority and a very urgent need for many of the ABU members’ right from the beginning. The larger members, like the ABC and NHK and so on, had their own training institutes but there was no regional institute. So it was felt an institution of some sort, some training organisation should be set up”.

The AIBD continues to this day.

SPORTS RIGHTS NEGOTIATIONS

Negotiating for the rights to sports events has kept the union pretty busy since the 1980’s. Broadcasting unions traditionally negotiate these rights on behalf of a collective. Current ABU Secretary General Javad Mottaghi says the cost of sport rights are becoming prohibitive for many broadcasters. “The way that we see the rights fees increasing is beyond the ability of public broadcasters and even commercial networks. The rights holders are trying to get more income. In order for them to get more income they try to split the unions and negotiate separately with broadcasters in different countries”.

TECHNOLOGY CHANGES

There have been plenty of challenges for the ABU along the way. A key technical challenge was the move from analogue to digital technology.  “Digital broadcasting was a major development for broadcasters all over the world. It was not just an upgrade of old technology, but it was a totally new concept which required new equipment and new techniques, even new programming”, Hugh Leonard told the ABC’s Tracee Hutchison.

DISASTER RISK REDUCTION

A spate of natural disasters in the Asia Pacific region during the 1990’s forced the ABU to consider an approach to disaster risk reduction broadcasting. Mr Gil Hwan-Young is the current ABU President and also the CEO of the Korean Broadcasting System. He told the ABC “broadcasters have an important role to play during these traumatic times. We have the ability to increase preparedness, share vital information and to help our members develop emergency broadcast plans and improve their early warning procedures.”

ABU ROBOCON

A robot competition launched by the ABU in 2002 would become one of the Unions most popular initiatives. ABU Robocon mobilises students throughout Asian “Universities to look into technology and to work together. Now we see more than 20 countries are participating in ABU Robocon,” said Javad Mottaghi, current ABU Secretary General.

Mr Mottaghi remembers the first time he went to the final of ABU Robocon: “I really felt the glory of this event when I walked into the stadium for the first time 3 years ago and I saw over 10,000 fans, students, university students trying to support the countries in which they participate.”

ASIAVISION

Asiavision news exchange is 30 years old in 2014 and goes from strength to strength.   “The voice of Asia is now not only being distributed to the region, but also is being distributed to broadcasters and the public in Europe in North America, in the Arab world. ABU has partnership with Arab state broadcasting union and give the program and stories to the Arab countries through Asia Vision. We have partnership with European broadcasting union, with Eurovision and also with North American broadcasters”, said Javad Mottaghi.

THE 50 YEAR MILESTONE

For 50 years the ABU has taken Asia Pacific values of harmony, collaboration and co-operation to promote the collective interests of television and radio broadcasters. The ABU will celebrate its first 50 years with its eyes firmly set on the future.

“I believe that every person has a right to a quality of life that includes greater technology and entertainment.  Through the ABU we are bringing content to a bigger audience and enriching hearts and minds. Our 50-year anniversary celebrates this success and we are just as excited to envision the next 50 years, working together to lead broadcasting into the future”, Mr Gil Hwan-Young told Radio Australia.

“Through the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, we promote the Asia-Pacific values of harmony and sharing and we hope that through our union viewers and listeners will feel more connected with one another,” he said.
