Newly elected president Delaibatiki says first on his agenda is to up skill the journalists.
“One of the things that personally I would like to see happen is that we can do more training for our local journalist. I notice tonight we’ve got a very young group of journalist and that is a good sign for the future, that is something we can build on, but training is absolutely important.”
