The president of France Télévisions recently travelled to Alger to renew the group's cooperation agreement with Algerian National Television, EPTV, which the group has been working with for the last ten years.

The agreement was also signed by Tewfik Khelladi, EPTV's general director.
The agreement, which already brings FTV's expertise and advice in training and coaching, will now be extended to strategic advising in the digital arena. FTV will help EPTV develop online services such as catch-up TV Pluzz, news-oriented Francetv info or francetv education.
France Télévisions will also promote Algerian and Mediterranean programming on its channels.
The French PSB group backs other public medias in Tunisia and Egypt too. Further agreements are set to be announced shortly.
