The training was funded by Pacific Media Assistance Scheme (PACMAS), an Australian Government funded media training initiative for the Pacific, and was facilitated in collaboration with the Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI).
Grace Williams, a representative of the Australian High Commission in Solomon Islands speaking during the presentation of certificates to the participants, said her government was pleased to support the training for media workers in the Country.
