Non-Aligned News Agencies Pool (NANAP)

Non-Aligned News Agencies Pool (NANAP) is an arrangement of exchange of news between the news agencies of non-aligned countries who have for long been victims of imbalances and bias in the flow of news. The Pool came into existence in 1976. India was the first chairman of the Pool (1976-79). The Pool is a world-wide operation embracing four continents, viz., Asia, Europe, Africa and Latin America. The Pool news is transmitted in four languages--English, Spanish, French and Arabic.

An elected body known as the Coordinating Committee with an elected chairman as its head has been constituted to coordinate the activities of the pool. The committee meets at least once in a year and its meetings are open to all participants.The chairman and members of the committee are elected during the general conference held at the end of every three years.

India has played a vital role in the creation and expansion of the Pool. So far 12 satellite links and four terrestrial links have been established with news agencies of Indonesia (Antara), Yugoslavia (Tanjug), Cuba (Prensa Latina), Bahrain (GNA), Sri Lanka (Lankapuvath), Vietnam (VNA via Kyodo), Malaysia (Bernama), London (PTI Bureau) and Zimbabwe (ZIANA). In addition there are terrestrial links with Bangladesh (BSS), Nepal (RSS) and Afghanistan.
India News Pool Desk is operated by the Press Trust of India. It receives news items from the Pool partners. The incoming news traffic in the Pool is about 22,000 words and outgoing is 10,000 words a day. The professional aspect of the News Pool operation in India is the responsibility of PTI.
