Bahrain to launch media transparency policy
Manama, October 7, 2012
Bahrain's media will join in dialogue with a government minister to activate an open-door policy in a major new move towards total openness and transparency.
Bahrain Journalists' Association chairman Moanes Al Mardi has invited all journalists, media people and writers to attend the meeting tomorrow (October 8) with Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa at the association's headquarters in Juffair.
It is considered the first among monthly meetings to host a minister or officials in the kingdom in open and direct dialogue to shed light on the most important developments and changes in the local arena.
The minister will discuss issues of concern to the homeland and citizens for the benefit and interest of everyone.
The meeting will be an opportunity for communication between senior officials and members of the Press and media to provide them with information and highlight the projects and programmes of ministries and government institutions, in addition to strengthening Press relations.
The open-door policy is an approach that has been inherent in Bahrain in thought, action and practice, where senior officials are keen to meet citizens, journalists, members of the legislature, clergymen, businessmen and men of thought, said a government statement.
This policy constitutes a platform for freedom of expression in the pursuit of all that would respond to the aspirations of Bahraini citizens and establish a brighter future for the kingdom, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
