MIP: Ukrainian Journalists Participated in Training on Economics and Finances in Turkey
During 19-31 March 2018, training courses for journalists ‘Journalism in the Economic and Financial Fields’ were held at Turkish news agency Anadolu in Ankara, Turkey. The courses were organized by Anadolu and the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) with the participation of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine.
The training was intense, involving 78 hours of lectures during 12 days. The training was attended by 25 journalists from eight countries. Ukraine was represented by Olena Blizniakova, NPBCU’s special correspondent, Olena Dolonina, a correspondent and news anchor of channel UA:Krym, Yuliia Bozhko, a news correspondent of international broadcasting channel UA|TV, and Oksana Polishchuk, a columnist of the National News Agency Ukrinform.
The course’s syllabus provided for both theoretical and practical classes and meeting with representatives of Turkey’s financial sector. “In particular, we had interesting meetings and presentations at the Ministry of Economy, the Statistics Department, the Central Bank, and the Treasury. The participants of the course could directly ask heads of those departments and receive answers and advice on writing economic news,” Oksana Polishchuk said.
Hatice Karahan, the Advisor to the President of Turkey, gave a series of lectures on the use of bank data.
“Anadolu Agency editors and invited experts – leading economists, financial counsellors – gave a detailed insight into a broad range of topics in the field of local and global politics, untangling interrelations between the economy and the social development of the region and of the member states of the training,” the participants said.
It should be recalled that, during 5-16 February 2018, training courses for reporters in the field of diplomatic journalism were held in Ankara, Turkey, based on Anadolu, a Turkish news agency. From Ukraine, the courses were attended by Halise Zinedin, a news anchor at international broadcasting TV channel UA|TV, Nataliia Kostina, head of Ukrinform’s foreign editorial office, and Elvir Sahirman, communications manager at the Crimean Tatar Resource Centre.
