Advanced Training on Regional Integration Reporting

November 23 - December 3, 2011
Bujumbura, Burundi.

The training is meant to achieve greater knowledge and understanding of the concept of regional integration in general and of the Organs, Institutions and policies of the EAC.

The training is also aimed at enhancing the journalistic skills of the reporters when covering regional integration issues. The training programme will bring together 15 senior to middle-level journalists, three from each Partner State, working in newspapers, magazines, online publications, news agencies, radio and television.

"This is the third EAC-GIZ joint training, but the first advanced training, and the journalists will learn how to transfer their knowledge of EAC matters into their practical work. In fact, in this session the selected journalists will have a practical stint to cover the First Lake Tanganyika Basin Development Conference (unlocking the overflowing trade and Investment opportunities in the Basin), the climax of East African Legislative Assembly’s (EALA) 10th Anniversary, the official opening of the EAC Council of Ministers meeting and the Summit of Heads of State all taking place within the same period in Bujumbura,’’ according to the EAC Head of Department of Corporate Communication and Public Affairs, Mr. Owora Richard Othieno.

He added the training is part of continuous efforts of the EAC Secretariat to enable journalists in the region to share the best practices in disseminating regional integration information and empowering the media to report as accurately and widely as possible.

The training will also offer the participants an opportunity to do networking with their colleagues in the region.

The application for the advanced training programme is now open and the deadline is 2 November, 2011. The short listing and decision for admission to the training programme will be done by the GIZ Headquarters in Bonn, Germany.
