VIDEO: PNG Media improves ranking despite challenges

Challenges remain for Papua New Guinea's media industry despite an improved ranking of 51 in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index released by Reporters Without Borders.

The Media Council of Papua New Guinea has welcomed the improved ranking from 55 in the 2016 index, but alerted the PNG Government and relevant authorities to guarantee the safety of media personnel as they continue to face the threat of assault, harassment and intimidation in the course of gathering and reporting news.
