Chile. The president of CNTV, Oscar Reyes, together with counselor Esperanza Silva, traveled to Japan in the framework of the last international trip of President Michelle Bachelet before concluding her term.
At the Tokyo Rinkai Disaster Prevention Park, they were informed about how the city is prepared to inform and organize in the face of natural disasters. The park was completed in 2008 and was designed to become the center of operations in the event of a major disaster, such as an earthquake in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
There the president received an exhibition on how they coordinate in that center for disasters and how they deliver information to television and other media. The place has a gigantic room where they organize the data in different screens and computers.
The authorities met with the authorities of the Public Television of Japan, which has about ten thousand workers. There the executives of the channel could explain to them how the TV works in case of earthquakes or typhoons, generally through a national chain in case of catastrophes. They were also able to share experiences on the production of children's TV, fiction, sports, and miscelaneos.
