Romanian state news agency Agerpres launched, at UN, the first Facebook Messenger NewsBot in Romania and a video documentary.

Agrepres NewsBot is conceived to help Facebook users to identify the most important English language news published by the agency in a dynamical, interactive and practical way. The newsbot is accessible via Facebook Messenger and will be soon available also in Romanian.


Agerpres NewsBot is part of the Agerpres’ Innovation Lab, initiative to create an internal startup environment that aims to test and deploy the newest media production and distribution techniques. The main focus is on native, cross-channel approaches to media formats and distribution



The launch of the newsbot and the video documentary were part of an event that took place at UN Headquarters in New York and which was organized by Agerpres and Romania’s Permanent Mission at UN with the occasion of Romania’s National Day. The event was organized with support from Romanian Commercial Bank (BCR), Erste Group Member
