Local Govt to set up training institute for journalists, mulls amending Press Council Act

The Government has made plans to set up a training institute to develop the professional skills of journalists.

The President stated this at a discussion held at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday (29) on the plans of the State Ministry of Postal Services and Journalism.

Although it has been revealed that the number of complaints received from electronic, print and social media regarding the negative impact and prejudice on individuals, institutions and businesses is currently at a high level, the Government is considering amending the Press Council Act to take all these factors into consideration.
