This forum is in three parts. Each part is scheduled for one hour. The first part will address the challenges faced by the African Press in doing our work domestically and internationally.

Part three will provide us with opportunity to offer our views and ideas on ways and means of strengthening the status of the African press in domestically and around the world.
