Liberia: EU Ambassador Calls On Media Professionals to Tell Positive Stories About Liberia

Monrovia — European Union Ambassador to Liberia Hélène Cavé has challenged journalists selected to participate in the EU-Liberia Partnership Campaign for Young Media professionals to tell positive stories about Liberia.

The campaign is intended to produce for the EU Delegation in Liberia (EUD) and the National Authorizing Officer (NAO), series of media reports to increase the visibility and raise awareness about the outcomes and benefits of the EU funded development projects through the European development Fund (EDF).

It focuses on several thematic areas including Agriculture, Forestry, Technical Vocational Education and Training, Civil Society Initiative, as well as Budget Support.

Eight young media professionals were selected from a competitive process. Among them four are Europeans, while the other four are Liberians.

Speaking at the official launch of the campaign on Monday, February 24, Ambassador Cave expressed confidence that the young media professionals will be up to the task.

"I am confident that your different experiences and backgrounds will be very inspiring and enriching; for yourselves, as young media professionals, as well as for Europeans and Liberians hearing and reading your stories," she said.

"I hope that your stories will allow Liberia to be painted more positively outside as it is in case so far. Liberia deserves attention, Liberia gas a lot to offer."
