Apart from renovating the building, UNESCO with $2.5 million funding from Italy has equipped the ERTV Centre with furniture, internet access and 40 computers linked through a Local Area Network (LAN). Some digital television equipment has also been provided, with complete radio and television studios. Under the project, UNESCO has provided three months of intensive training in fields such as TV and radio techniques, use of digital equipment, programme production, English language proficiency and computer literacy. In the next phase of the project, ten ERTV staff members will receive advanced training at the Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD).
