THE Ministry of Information has organised a three-day workshop on media relations for the benefit of ministerial spokespersons in cooperation with the UNESCO and European Union in Myanmar. The workshop has been running since Monday.
The workshop is aimed at helping the government’s spokespersons to be confident in their relations with the media.
Director-General Daw Nwe Nwe Win of the Budget Department under the Ministry of Planning and Finance expressed her view on the workshop, saying that the workshop helps promote knowledge regarding the media directory and the difference between press briefings and a press conference.

The director-general called on the media to cooperate with the spokespersons in order to provide the public with accurate news, stressing the need for strict adherence to media ethics.
“I want the people to enjoy the full benefits of having access to information through the media,” added the director-general.
Mr. Ramon R. Tuazon expressed thanks to the participants for their energetic participation in the workshop, saying that appointment of the spokespersons will be effective in ensuring transparency and will enable the public to enjoy the benefits of transparency.
