The PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum, commends ExxonMobil PNG in its support of social media training for mainstream journalists in Papua New Guinea.
ExxonMobil PNG in partnership with The PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum, hosted its Social -Media Training a day ahead of their Community Affairs And Media Workshop.
In a virtual conference featuring ExxonMobil PNGs Susil Kongoi-Nelson and PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum’s Neville Choi, the training incorporated aspects of social media presentation for mainstream media usage and coverage.
In his opening remarks, Chamber Public Relations and Communications Manager, Neville Choi thanked ExxonMobil PNG for their continued commitment to supporting the PNG mainstream media through the facilitation of these social media training workshops.
He said “ExxonMobil PNG has been a strong supporter of helping the media, and from the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum, it is this kind of help and support that the resource sector gives, which you don’t usually hear about. There is a lot of misinformation or misunderstandings of the way this sector works. Much of this is predominant on social media platforms.”
Choi added “The PNG Media continues to grow and develop, and even more so today as we live and adapt to a range of new normal’s brought about by COVID 19. And it goes without saying, that messaging around COVID19 is a clear and present concern, especially for journalists and newsrooms everywhere.”
The event today, is a lead-in to the next two days of the Chamber’s Community Affairs and Media Workshop, which will feature a number of presenters domestic and international.
