“As a part of its committment to strengthen journalism, the Club of Cambodian Journalists began a five day training course for Cambodian journalists from different institutions and with different political trends.

“Journalists from Rasmei Kampuchea, Koh Santepheap, Kampuchea Thmey, Moneaksekar Khmer, Samleng Yuvachun Khmer, and the Radio Voice of Democracy are among the twenty two journalists attending the training, organized by the Club of Cambodian Journalists and sponsored by the Cambodia Independent Journalism Foundation.

“The President of the Club of Cambodian Journalists, Mr. Pen Samithi, said, ‘This training is very important; it will help to strengthen the professional work of Cambodian journalists.’ He added that this training aims to provide participants with useful techniques and skills of writing and reporting with the goal to make it easy to cover information and to report information to the readers.

“He expressed his optimism that after the training finishes, the trainees will be able to use new techniques as the basis to cover information, to make interviews, and to write. Also they will know how to find data – data that can be trusted, experts, and resources to produce reports on different topics.

“The Cambodian Independent Journalism Foundation, with the Club of Cambodian Journalists as partner, invited Ms. Margaret Freaney, who is an experienced journalist from the United States of America, for the five day training course. Ms. Margaret Freaney is a founding academic director of the Caucasus School of Journalism in Georgia. Working for the Independent Journalism Foundation and the International Center for Journalists in Washington, she has trained many journalists, including Journalists from Cambodia and Vietnam.

“The representative of the Independent Journalism Foundation in Cambodia, Mr. Peter Starr, said, ‘The Independent Journalism Foundation is satisfied to sponsor this second workshop in Cambodia, where Ms. Margaret Freaney is the trainer, who is an excellent trainer for international journalists and a former editor of several newspapers in the United States. She has also great experiences of being a reporter on the health sector.’

“The Club of Cambodian Journalists is an independent organization committed to serve the interests of journalists and to protect journalists, as well as to promote press freedom and to strengthen journalism in Cambodia.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.16, #4611, 10.6.2008
