A HANDBOOK to assist journalists in the task of reporting the proceedings of the Fijian Parliament was launched in Parliament this morning.

Media Industry Development Authority (MIDA) chairperson Ashwin Raj said the launch of the document – titled Fiji Parliamentary Reporters’ Handbook – showed that the media had a pivotal role to play in Fiji.

“This empowers journalists to use the guidelines to report robustly in Parliament,” Mr Raj said.

The handbook was an initiative of the Pacific Media Assistance Scheme (PACMAS).
