PUL Outlines Five Media Support Goals

By Prince Nagbe        

MONROVIA, March 10 (LINA) - The President of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL), Mr. Abdullai Kamara, says his institution has developed five goals aimed at supporting the media and public communication in the country.

 

He made the disclosure at a one-day Media and Public Communication meeting held at African Development Bank Country’s office in Monrovia at the weekend.

Kamara named the five media support goals as Institutional Capacity Strengthening, Promotion of Professionalism within the Liberian Media, Promotion of Press Freedom and Freedom of Expression, Improvement of the Working Conditions of Liberian journalists and Ensuring Gender Equality within the Media.

Under the Institutional capacity strengthening goal, the PUL leader said the Union will develop operational policies and procedures, acquire adequate infrastructure and strengthen its membership and solidarity with related and regional bodies.

According to Kamara, the Union will set up a journalism training institute, increase and improve media coverage on technical issues, as well as strengthen a media complaints committee aimed at promoting professionalism throughout the entire media landscape of the country.

He said in order to promote press freedom and freedom of expression, PUL will campaign vigorously to make sure that repressive and criminal laws against the media are repealed.

Kamara further disclosed that PUL will promote sustainable industrial relations in the media through mutually acceptable collective bargaining agreement, to ensure that the working conditions of journalists are improved.

Under its gender equality goal, the PUL president told participants at the meeting that his Union will achieve this goal, by enhancing the active participation and capacity of female journalists.
