Mgr. Jaroslav Rezník, Director General of TASR:

”The digitization of TASR archives is our contribution to the 20th anniversary of the creation of a separate TASR, a project that is socially useful, not only for the media, the general public, but also for educational and research purposes. and the linking of photos with descriptions and metadata writing, I think we have prepared a quality project and I look forward to having good quality and constructive cooperation with the stakeholders, especially with the mediating body of the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic.”
