NGO in Solomons works to improve media knowledge of mining

Staff Reporter | 2:35 PM |

Workshops are being conducted in Solomon Islands to ensure that the media is on the ball as the country’s minerals sector becomes a more significant part of the economy.

Mining is expected to play an increasingly important role in the Solomon Islands economy as the country’s logging resource nears depletion.

Journalist Dorothy Wickham through the NGO Solomon Islands Women Empowering Local Women has been running the workshops.

She says it is important that journalists understand what is going on so they can get the information through to the public, particularly in rural areas.
