The Economic Journalists Association of the Philippines concluded a three-day business journalism seminar in partnership with San Miguel Corp. and the Ateneo Center for Economic Research and Development.
The virtual sessions, spread over three Saturdays of May, allowed 29 business reporters across 13 news outfits covering almost the major beats in the business and economic community to listen to lectures that expanded their understanding of how business and the economy work.
The sessions were designed to improve the reporters’ understanding of macro-economy, capital markets and commodities and improve their reporting on these topics.
Participants who successfully attended all sessions in the three-day seminar were awarded with a certificate of completion.
“The new normal was a great opportunity for us to refresh and expand our members’ skills in covering various sectors of the economy. This event would not be possible without the gracious support of Mr. Ramon Ang of SMC and ACERD lead by esteemed economist Dr. Alvin Ang,” said EJAP president Gerard de la Peña.
