A Commission proposal for a Council Decision concerns the implementation of the action programme to promote the development of the European audiovisual industry (MEDIA, 1991-1995). The proposed Decision seeks to amend an earlier Decision (90/685/EEC) in order that the programme may also contribute to promoting cooperation with professionals in the audiovisual industry in the member countries of the Council of Europe. These professionals may be invited to participate in initiatives under the action programme within the framework of agreements on cooperation in the audiovisual media signed by the Community with the non-Member countries concerned. Participation in projects shall be formalized by agreements with those responsible for the projects concerned; new members shall contribute to the project in proportion to their participation. The Community shall also contribute to the operating costs of the Audiovisual Eureka Secretariat and to the operation of a European Audiovisual Observatory. In addition, Annexes I and II of the earlier Decision are to be replaced by the Annexes attached to the present proposal. These concern: - Measures to be put into effect (distribution and promotional measures, improvement of production conditions including the use of new technologies in programme production, stimulation of investment, training for professionals, development of potential in countries with smaller audiovisual production capacities); - Operating rules of associations responsible for the management of MEDIA projects.
