THE Fiji Media Watch group (FMW) and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) discussed a proposed partnership in assisting FMW's endeavours in creating a free and responsible environment for the media in Fiji.

FMW's acting director Laitia Tamata said FMW continued with its growth in the thematic areas of communication rights for democratic development in Fiji.

"Establishing these key partnerships would be essential in allowing Fijian citizens to fully participate in the good governance of their country by exercising their rights," Mr Tamata said.

Mr Tamata said FMW was also in discussion with civil society organisations (CSOs) in need of media watch services and had received positive responses.

"FMW is also discussing with local CSOs from other Pacific Island nations of their need for media watch services and the responses have been very positive," he said.
