A recently signed cooperation agreement between the Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) and Egypt’s Maspero will be a boon for state television, the country’s minister of information, the London-based newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat reported on Friday.

If state television makes a popular series or program, it can be aired on MBC and the latter would then give the Egyptian television company Maspero half of the profits generated, Doriya Sharaf al-Din said.

The cooperation with the Dubai-based broadcaster would include the production of programs and drama series as well as collaborations in the fields of marketing and training, the minister added.

The agreement was signed by Essam al-Amir, the head of Egypt’s Radio and Television Union.

Al-Din said she had carefully reviewed the agreement and that she did not take any unilateral decisions.
