Pacific media body to start training programme with British help

4:26 pm on 12 December 2011

A web-based training programme for Pacific media has been commissioned by the Pasifika Media Association, PasiMA.

The move follows a meeting in Auckland where the one-year-old organization charted the course for its training programme, which is funded by a grant from the British High Commission in Solomon Islands.

The training resources will be designed to support Pacific media operators and journalists, particularly in the fields of business management, investigative journalism and multimedia platforms.

The PasiMA chairman Savea Sano Malifa, says the proposed training course will strengthen the role of member organisations in delivering robust journalism.
