Media workshop for journalists

Jan 29, 2011 11:17:07 AM - itnnews.lk

Minister Keheliya Rambukwella is of the view that the time is opportune to think anew of surmounting challenges in the new world.

The Minister pointed out that if decisions were taken as omniscent persons, then they would suffer defeat. They would not be permitted to think beyond thereafter. There should be an open mind if they are to proceed further respecting the opinion of others. It may not be possible to agree. He emphasized that they could argue and even totally reject, but they did not possess the right to denigrate others. The Minister opined that if this policy was adhered to, there would be no issue in gaining wide knowledge daily.

The Minister was speaking at a media training workshop. It was held at the “Mihilaka Medura” premises of the BMICH. Its purpose was to impart knowledge to media personnel to improve their professional talents. The workshop is a joint effort of the Ministry of Mass Media and Information and the Government Information Department. Secretary to the Ministry of Mass Media and Information W.B. Ganegala said plans are afoot to hold similar workshops for regional journalists covering all areas including the North and East. Government Information Director General Prof. Ariyaratne Ethughala, Information Director Wasantha Priya Ramanayake and SEnior Media personnel were present on the occasion.
