Daily News Egypt, Egypt’s leading English-language newspaper, and Telesur (Nueva Televisión del Sur), the Latin American television network, today announced a groundbreaking media partnership aimed at fostering cross-continental news exchange and collaboration.

The landmark agreement, formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), outlines a comprehensive framework for the reciprocal exchange and broadcast of television programs, the sharing of news content, and mutual access to media resources. The partnership aims to enrich the news landscapes of both regions by providing diverse perspectives and in-depth coverage of global events.

“This partnership marks a significant milestone in our commitment to delivering comprehensive and diverse news coverage to our audience,” said Mohamed Samir, Executive Editor of Daily News Egypt. “By collaborating with Telesur, we are not only expanding our reach but also forging a bridge between the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) and Latin America, two regions with rich histories and interconnected futures.”

Patricia Villegas Marín, President of Telesur, stated “We are excited to join forces with Daily News Egypt in this endeavour. This partnership represents a unique opportunity to amplify the voices of the Global South and provide a platform for cross-cultural understanding. By sharing our respective expertise and resources, we are confident that we can deliver impactful and informative content to our viewers across the globe.”
