The Round table on possible cooperation of media and local authorities in their efforts to make life of Tuvan people better, initiated by Tuva-Online news agency, took place in the conference-hall of the State Tuvan TV company. Over 30 journalists, representatives of press-services of the 3 state power branches and political and public leaders participated in the conversation. 'We are boiling in our own pots and such discussions are badly needed!' - said journalists. How can media and authorities cooperate in solving the problems of Tuva? Why do journalists let being used for servicing definite political and business groups and not state interests of Tuva? Why does not the present Tuvan government define the economic priorities of the republic and involve journalists in their realization? Why talented journalists prefer to quit journalism chosing work in the press-services? Where should the Tuvan speaking journalists get their professional preparation? Why their Tuvan language is deteriorating with every passing year in stead of setting the language standards for the society? Should the state support financially press? These and other questions were raised throughout the Round Table, and not all of them were answered.
