A DELEGATION from Papua New Guinea's Information Ministry is in the country on a fact-finding mission.
A government statement said the delegation, lead by the ministry's deputy secretary Paulias Korni, met with Fiji's ministry permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns this week and discussed developments between both countries.
Ms Smith-Johns briefed the delegation on the developments taking place in Fiji's media environment as well as the strengthening of the Media Liaison Officers Network, a network of government spokespersons.
Highlighting the recent announcement by Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama on Fiji's constitutional process, Ms Smith-Johns said this would be a key area that the government and media outlets would be involved in.
The delegation was briefed on the challenges the ministry faced and the measures that had been implemented to address this.
A key area that was widely discussed was the accessibility to information and how those in both rural or remote communities needed to have access to vital information.
The countries agreed to pursue closer co-operation in areas of communication and dissemination.
The delegation which includes Alangit Homerang, the information, and Robson Akis, executive officer to the Secretary for Department of Communication and Information, will also tour Tonga and Samoa.
