The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) yesterday, 3 December 2009, announced Lebanon as the host country of the 63rd World Newspaper Congress, 17th World Editors Forum and Info Services Expo 2010, in Beirut from 7 – 10 June 2010.

It will be the first time the annual congress will be held in the Arab world.

“The time is right for the world’s press to meet in the Arab world, which has so much influence on world affairs, where the media is developing at a rapid rate, but which continues to struggle with repression of the basic human right to freedom of expression,” said Timothy Balding, co-CEO of WAN-IFRA.
