Dialogue between Media and Trade Personnel

In order to ensure the effective role of the local newspapers and media people for the sustainable development of the local trade, commerce and business activities, it is inevitable to have free flow of information, scope of views exchange and a good understanding and inter-related communication, between the businessmen and the media people in the professional and institutional level. That is a cordial and cooperative relation between the tradesmen and the journalists is must for the purpose. But such a good relation is actually absent.

The attempt of arranging dialogues has been adopted under the project to create a favourable environment for the establishment of a cooperative relation between these two types of professions and institutions. It will create not only a mutual corresponding relation, but also a favourable environment to do concerted work for trade, commerce and economic promotion in the local level. One of the main objectives of EU is to enhance a good relation among the people of media and the economic sector, which will be easily possible through arranging these dialogues.

To achieve the goals and objectives of the project, a number of dialogues will be arranged between the journalists and the business oriented people for the enhancement of their reciprocal and cooperative relation. A good understanding and friendly environment for working with a concerted effort to develop economic, trade and small business related activities in the local level, a joint meeting and dialogue will be arranged after every three months. Through arranging these dialogues it will be attempted to conduct joint effort for the betterment of the local trade and business and to share necessary data and information among themselves.

Program Strategy:

Under this project, a total of 48 tri-monthly dialogues between the tradesmen and journalists will be arranged in the 16 districts of the northern region. The local trade, commerce and small business promotion related issues would be the main points for the dialogue. All the journalists of local and national newspapers, radio and television working in that particular district and the leading people directly or indirectly involved with the local trade, commerce and business of the district will take part in the dialogues. In these dialogues, the representatives of business-oriented people will focus on the problems, solutions, limitations and potentiality of different types of small, medium and large business activities of the district. On the other hand, the present journalists will encourage and convince the government and other business concerned authorities to solve the remaining obstacles and constraints of the local trade and business and to utilize the potentiality through giving positive media coverage to this sector.
