AIJC president Ramon Tuazon reported from Myanmar that significant changes are taking place in the journalism and communication landscape of the country.
He said that the Department of Journalism at Yangon’s National Management College convened a series of workshops that could have major positive repercussions for the future of domestic journalism in Myanmar. The workshops were the start of a new curriculum for its journalism programme – one that would put it on the path to becoming a journalism school in an internationally recognized sense.

The Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication condemns in the strongest terms the pork barrel and the corruption that it has bred, whether in the legislative or the executive branch of government.
In the pursuit of truth and justice, we express our outrage over an evil system that wantonly assigns huge lump sums of the people’s money and scandalously allows these sums to be used without accountability or transparency.
We make known our indignation over the betrayal committed by those stewards of the people’s funds who have callously and wrongfully enriched themselves, their families and their cohorts through their privileged access to the pork barrel.
