Asia Pacific Media Educator


The legacy of journalists who died covering the Vietnam War lives on in the work of the Indochina Media Memorial Foundation, 1 which trains a new generation of journalists now covering the complex issues of national reconstruction. In May, the IMMF conducted an intensive three-week course on business and economic reporting for 15 print, radio and television journalists from Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Its next course, in October, will center on another rising concern of governments, citizens and the news media throughout Asia --the environment and its degradation.
