Today, the world faces new challenges such as terrorism, war, poverty, hunger, clash of civilizations, climate change and much more. The role of global media providing information about these issues has increased.
In this regard, media should meet the needs of people for operational and unbiased information. However, some media outlets have created a knowledge gap and confusion among the nations.
Our goal is to contribute to the establishment of an impartial media outlet in the Eurasian region and across the world to fill this gap. By taking into account the priorities of the International Eurasia Press Fund (IEPF), particularly in Eurasian region, the creation of this analytical information portal has become a need now. The portal will be the idea carrier and the promoter of peace and stability.
The main task is to create an analytical information portal which will play a leading role and will have an excellent ability to reach a wide audience and provide balanced information and analyses.
It will also convey regional realities to foreign countries, to help them learn more about the socio-economic and cultural heritage of the great Eurasian region.
Some of key areas of activities of Eurasia-Diary are the following:
- Collect necessary information and news about events on the agenda of the international community and deliver it to readers online.
- Interview the dignitaries and well know celebrities. Learn the opinions of foreign experts and provide a virtual arena for them to hold discussions on various relevant topics.
- Promotion of material and cultural values of the regional nations.
