Jakarta (ANTARA) - Media registration for the upcoming 10th World Water Forum (WWF) in Bali will open in April, the Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo) announced on Monday.

"There will be a registration period of approximately a month for journalists. We will open it in April until a week before the event,” said Usman Kansong, the ministry's Director General of Information and Public Communication, on Monday.

“Fellow journalists are required to register for an invitation. They will then receive accreditation to be able to cover the event," he said.

Kansong said that a similar registration mechanism has also been implemented at international events, such as the G20 Summit in Bali in 2022, the 2023 ASEAN Summit, and the 2023 Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Summit.

Journalists who register and are accredited through the ministry's process for covering the 10th WWF will have access to a media center.

The media center is prepared to accommodate around 1,000 journalists at one time and will be equipped with devices with internet speeds that support journalists' work needs on site.

Kansong remarked that the ministry will also provide information related to the 10th WWF, along with relevant discussion topics that could be used as news material for journalists.

Meanwhile, Minister of Communication and Information, Budi Arie Setiadi, remarked that his ministry will work closely with telecommunication providers to ensure that the internet speed provided can be optimal, with a range of 50 to 100 Mbps.

The 10th WWF, themed "Water for Shared Prosperity," will take place at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) in Badung, Bali, from May 18 to 25. Around 15,000 delegates are expected to attend the event.
