Da Nang (VNA) – The Media Training Centre of the Vietnam Journalists Association has organised a training course in the central coastal city of Da Nang for 30 reporters and editors who will cover the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting later this year.

The July 20-21 course aimed to provide the trainees, who came from central and local press agencies, with general knowledge about APEC, including its history and development through meetings and the main objectives of the APEC Year in Vietnam.
 
The trainees were also equipped with skills to cover such an important event, towards the formation of a network of journalists to disseminate information on the APEC Year 2017.

They also learnt to work at international conferences to write in-depth articles about political events.
