Workshop on economics started
IMCK-trainer Maaike Veen started a 5-day workshop with nine of the staff of Awene newspaper, on reporting on economic issues. The training started on Sunday June 21, 2009 at the training hall of IMCK in Sulaymaniya.
The workshop should result in a new economics page for Awene. Veen is teaching the Avene-reporters which issues would be interesting for their readers, how te report on them and what business and economic reporting really is about.
Awene is an independent weekly newspaper, printed in Sulaymaniya. The training is mainly funded by the Dutch ngo Press Now.
