A number of major public broadcasters around the world, including KBS, have agreed to share documentary productions free of charge.

Korean Broadcasting System President Kim In-kyu proposed the free exchange while attending the Public Broadcasters International Assembly in Kyoto, Japan.

Kim said that connecting world cultures in this global era is the role of public broadcasters and that doing so is necessary to strengthen programming competitiveness.

The CEOs of major broadcasters, including the NHK and France's FTV, agreed with Kim's proposal, saying that free exchange would also save production costs.

Kim also proposed that documentary sharing be expanded to developing nations in the future.
