EJN Programme Report 2016
On June 18 the EJN organised in Hong Kong a meeting of academics and journalism leaders from China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea in co-operation with Hong Kong Baptist University. The results of this meeting (See Appendix Two) saw the launch of the East Asia Media Forum, which will promote media dialogues and co-operation to combat rising threats to journalism from propaganda in the region.
The highlight of work in December was the EJN mission to China which had been delayed due to organisation problems. But it went ahead successfully and after meetings with academics, media leaders, journalists and media regulators in Beijing, Shandong and Guangzhou the EJN prepared a report for future activities and links with Chinese journalism and media which will provide for new initiatives for ethical training in China and East Asia in 2017 and the years ahead.
