Representatives of the Pacific Media Centre and the new regional body Pasifika Media Association (PasiMA) have met in Auckland to explore some joint projects such as investigative journalism and student/media staff training exchanges.

Six board members from four countries - Cook Islands, Hawai’i, Samoa and Tonga  - met PMC director Professor David Robie, Pacific Media Watch editor Alex Perrottet and Kiribati Independent publisher Taberannang Korauaba.

Both Perrottet and Korauaba are also masters students in AUT’s School of Communication Studies.

“This is a thrilling opportunity for us to be able to reflect with some of the Pacific’s media who’s who such as Samoa Observer editor-in-chief Savea Sano Malifa, Taimi o’ Tonga publisher Kalafi Moala and Cook Islands News editor John Woods ways we can work together,” said Dr Robie.
