The BAI will take an active role in encouraging and facilitating debate on issues of concern to citizens and broadcasters.

The BAI challenges and supports the Irish broadcasting sector to remain relevant, essential and to deliver for the audience.  We support initiatives that identify and address development needs.  We work collaboratively with the sector

including with relevant networks and foster partnerships to enhance development and that create synergies.  All such work is ultimately directed towards the enhancement of Irish content for the viewer and listener.
