Workshop begins

KATHMANDU: The second Asian Women Sports Journalists Workshop kicked off in Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday.

A total of 28 women journalists from 10 countries from Asia are taking part in the four-day workshop being organised by AIPS-Asia and the Lebanese Sports Media Association with the aim of enhancing the knowledge and reinforce the professional presence of the participants.

“We are proud to host this event in Lebanon as we aspire to organise much more workshops across the continent,” said AIPS-Asia President Sattam Alsahli during the opening ceremony.

Similarly, Lebanese Minister of Information Melhem Riachi emphasised on the importance of the journalists’ job around the world. “Journalism is a message in our society and is the advocate to protect the public opinion.

This is a first of its kind event happening in Lebanon and we hope it is not the last,” said Riachi.
