The Myanmar Journalism Institute will be established through a collaboration among members of private commercial and public media organisations from Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Myanmar.
It will offer diploma courses in all journalism subjects with technical support from international partners.
“We are now inviting the potential founding members for the school. The founding assembly will be held in May and a board of directors for the school will be elected,” said U Zeya Hlaing, who is chairman of the school founding work committee, as well as editor of Mawkyun news magazine and a media trainer.
The institute’s consultation group includes International Media Support of Denmark, FoJo of Sweden, Deutsche Welle Akademie of Germany, UNESCO and Myanmar’s Forever Group.
Deutsche Welle Akademie will take on the role of project coordinator for the international partners.
