She also mentioned taking long-term reforms in the film sector, calling these two projects to promote the content directly. She also commended the PTV for maintaining its reputation till date due to its strong foundations, integrity and credibility.
She, however, acknowledged the lack of children’s content on state TV which led to the promotion of content by foreign outlets.
