AGERPRES National News Agency launches on Wednesday at the UN headquarters in New York the first Facebook Messenger NewsBot of Romania – AGERPRES NewsBot, and the “People of the Danube Delta, the realm between waters” video documentary, a story about the Danube Delta told by people for whom Romania will always be at home.
AGERPRES NewsBot helps Facebook users identify the most important news items of the Agency, in an easy, interactive and practical manner. Thus, those who will access AGERPRES NewsBot will be able to read, using Facebook Messenger, news items in English in the areas of Culture, Economy, Politics and Sports.
Moreover, AGERPRES NewsBot users can subscribe to a weekly overview of the most important news, which will be delivered every Sunday, at 15:00. In Romania, AGERPRES NewsBot will be available starting 1 December, at 13:00 hrs. The Romanian version will be available soon.
AGERPRES NewsBot is part of the AGERPRES Innovation Lab project, an initiative of the National News Agency devoted to creating an innovation environment, aimed at testing and deploying the newest media production and broadcast techniques on a national and international level.
The “People of the Danube Delta, the realm between waters” video documentary, which will be presented as a first at the UN headquarters, isn’t only a monography of the localities which, in history, have been closely linked to the destiny of a nation, but a material which entices to a journey to a world where everything seems to be coming from other times and where the challenge comes from only one question: “What can be saved, preserved and passed on?”
With the aid of the air and underwater shooting, the AGERPRES Video team has tried to illustrate as best as possible the reality of a place which isn’t presented as a tourist’s eye view. The trailer of the documentary the “People of the Danube Delta, the realm between waters” can be watched on the online video channel of the News Agency.
Moreover, the full documentary will be available online starting 1 December on AGERPRES VIDEO Facebook page and on the www.agerpres.ro public website.
The two premieres take place as part of the event organised by AGERPRES Romanian National News Agency and the Permanent Mission of Romania to the United Nations.
On the occasion of the event in New York, AGERPRES will also exhibit part of its huge photo archive, images depicting the most important moments of Romania’s activity at the UN, the main peace-keeping operations Romania participated in, as well as images reflecting the Romanian cultural-artistic, social, sports and political life.
The event benefits from the support of the Romanian Commercial Bank (BCR), an Erste Group member.
