The meeting between the Union Minister for Information and staff from the state-run newspapers of the News and Periodicals Enterprise and Nay Pyi Taw Printing Press under the Printing and Publishing Department was held yesterday at Bo Waziya Hall, Kyemon Press, in Zeyar Thiri township in Nay Pyi Taw.
Following the meeting, the Union minister also met with staff from MRTV at 1 pm at the MRTV auditorium in Tatkon.
At the meeting at Bo Waziya Hall, Dr. Pe Myint said, “Personnel from the News and Periodical Enterprise need to strive for issuing your articles into prestigious papers which can stand on its own in accord with journalism ethics and for describing voices of the people and national brethren, the government’s stance and performances. Being a non-stop routine, stress can occur to the staff. As newspapers are being issued daily to keep pace with the time, mistakes can be made occasionally. So, it must be co-operated collectively to be free from errors.”
The Union Minister added, “Staff under the Printing and Publishing Department need to strive for making high-quality productions and publishing and for upgrading production level by competing with outside businesses. Sarpay Beikman under the Printing and Publishing department is continuously making performances for the development of the literary world. Very soon, it will hold seminars in cooperation with the organisation of publishing house-owners.”
Afterward, U Kyaw Soe, Managing Director of News and Periodicals Enterprise and U Aung Myo Myint, Director-General of the Printing and Publishing Department, clarified the situations of accomplishment over the submissions of the staff. Following that, the Union Minister made a closing address.
At the meeting at the MRTV Auditorium, the Union Minister said, “Formerly, MRTV stood as the sole national television in the country. But starting from a century ago, two private media were granted to run the television industry. MRTV needs to change in accord with the changing times after careful consideration, by studying international techniques. I want our media to firmly stand as a national media.
Discussions are under way as to whether it will stand as public-orientated media or it will stand as a government media. The present meeting is designed for making present performances convenient.” Officials and staff then submitted advantages and disadvantages experienced in performing the tasks, and U Myint Htwe, Director-General of MRTV, explained the tasks to be implemented presently and the tasks to be performed in the future.
