By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, April 29 (LINA) -The Communication Analyst at the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has underscored the need for Liberian journalists to make it a policy to highlight developments taking place across the country.

Madam Augusta McGill Pshorr made the statement Monday at the opening of a three-day seminar on development journalism in Liberia.

About 25 Journalists from various media institutions across the country are participating in the seminar.

Madam Pshorr said UNDP is one of the key partners supporting the development agenda of the Liberian government through various sectors.

She observed that the media plays a vital role both in enhancing and sustaining democracy and contributing to the development of a country.

She stressed that as Liberia has transited from civil war to reconstruction, there is a need to promote and sustain the peace the country currently enjoys by sharpening the knowledge and skills of journalists in development journalism.

Making remarks at the ceremony, the President of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL), K. Abdullai Kamara, said it is critical for Liberian journalists to embark on development journalism that will impact the living conditions of the people.

The PUL president noted that development journalism relates to issues that affect the developmental needs of the country and its people.

The seminar is being held under the theme: Journalists building Liberia by reporting and analyzing key development issues that will transform the development process of the country.
