Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint held a meeting with cartoonists in Yangon yesterday, and sought advice from script creators to revitalize the newspapers and journals published by the Ministry of Information with the help of quality cartoons.
At the meeting held at the Printing and Publishing Department on Theinbyu Road, the Union Minister sought the advice of cartoonists to revive the ministry’s Shwe Thwe weekly comic journal to its former glory, promising that the ministry would turn the suggestions into reality.
He also asked the artists to give their views on the publishing of cartoons in the ministry’s dailies — the Myanma Alin, the Mirror, and The Global New Light of Myanmar —- and the Do Kyae-ywa Journal, published by the Printing and Publishing Department.
Afterwards, the officials concerned spoke about the space given to cartoonists in print media, and cartoonists discussed their possible contribution, based on their experiences, to the
media.
The meeting came to an end with Union Minister Dr. Pe Myint making the concluding remarks.—MNA
