The Norwegian Embassy in cooperation with the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) is sending a delegation of Filipino journalists to Oslo, Norway in September 2013.
The visit will take place in the week leading up to the Norwegian parliamentary elections on Monday, September 9, giving participants the opportunity to experience first-hand how the Norwegian news media covers national elections. The program will include visits to different news media, labor organizations and journalist unions, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There will of course also be a cultural component in the program and sightseeing opportunities.
The idea behind sending a delegation of Filipino journalists to Oslo is to increase awareness of Philippine-Norwegian relations. It is also a great opportunity to exchange experiences with other journalists (Norwegian and Filipino) and learn how the media operates in a country that is very different from the Philippines.
The Embassy and NUJP will sponsor flights and the aim is to get a delegation of five ambitious Filipino journalists with diverse backgrounds, but who have in common an interest in one or more aspects of Philippine-Norwegian affairs: business, culture, labor migration, diplomatic relations, or otherwise.
