PINA to focus on media schools

Newly elected President of the Pacific Islands News Association, Kora Nou, has committed to improve the standard of Journalism in the country.

Nou says he will do this by addressing resource issues at the University level.

He made the comment while speaking as a panellist during a Media Freedom discussion at the University of Papua New Guinea today.

My Nou said there is no point in establishing Journalism school if current Journalism courses at UPNG and Divine Word University are struggling to maintain the current facilities.

Meantime as the Managing Director of the National Broadcasting Corporation he assured Journalism students that the editorial teams in his newsrooms are independent from him or the government.
