In today's world, regional cooperation has become the trend, and yet this process is confronted with cultural diversity and developmental discrepancies. Meanwhile, in an age of media integration, openness and sharing are becoming the mainstream value for media. Against this background, media of different countries are faced with a new common task of how to encourage media reform and achieve win-win cooperation for all, through openness, inclusiveness and interconnectivity.

As one session of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2015, the Media Leaders Roundtable invites over 20 media leaders worldwide to gather in Boao, discuss media integration and interconnectivity, and create a new future of cooperation.
