Unesco keeps supporting training programs for OANA journalists
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) has reiterated its commitment to continuing its support for the OANA (Organization of Asia-Pacicific News Agencies) programs, including training programs for the agencies` journalists.
Dr. Linda Santiago, programme specialist for basic sciences of Unesco office in Jakarta, made the remarks in a plenary session of the 13th OANA General Assembly here on Wednesday.
OANA, which was established in December 1961 and is now made up of 33 member agencies, is seeking opportunities to improve the professionalism of its member agencies` journalists through training programs.
Unesco will provide short courses for the journalist training, Linda said, adding that if any of the agencies wishes to make the training programs into effect, it should coordinate with the world agency`s regional science bureau for the Asia and Pacific region in Bangkok.
