Department of Information: Inform, inform & entertain
The Ministry of Information is a link between the state and the population. It is the ministry's task to inform, educate and entertain the population. Below are extracts from the interview with the Union Minister of Information, Dr. Pe Myint, and Deputy Minister U Aung Hla Tun on the Ministry's goals.
Would Your Excellency Union Minister be able to outline the policy adopted by the Ministry in its second year in power? The Ministry of Information must provide information, education and entertainment for the population. These three functions are performed by Myanma Radio and Television, the Department of Information and Public Relations, the Department of Printing and Publishing and the Department of News and Periodicals Enterprises.
F: How will the ministry provide information to the general population? NPE and MRTV are the most important information resources for the population. It is the fast growing information technology era. The messages are released in print publications, released on-line and broadcast on television and television via Myanmar Digital Newspapers after the employees, resources and messages from the above three divisions have been brought together.
It is concentrating on pooling all divisions and mobilising intelligence resources to create a better toolset for the medium. F: What is a ministry scheme to enhance the part of the publicity? Are there precautions to inform and develop the world.
I believe that it will also support privately-owned audiovisual companies for their own developmen. We have Mizzima and DVB Medias programs tested. F: What is the Ministry's order to improve the written word? A. Developments in literatures, as well as Myanmar's literatures and the growth in readership in our nation, are the key drivers of literacy uptake.
Well, we concentrate on it, and both books and literary festival with readings on wood. Improving the quality of writing will draw the public and certainly improving the quality of life. In order to solve this problem, the Ministry of Information contacted other related departments to free the taxes on magazines and papers under the 2018 taxation law.
F: What steps is the Ministry taking to raise the number of subscribers, improve literacy habits and expand awareness? To this end, children's literary events have been organised, children's textbooks have been given and youngsters are invited to take part in contests. Childrens writing does not only attract kids, but also their mothers.
The Youth Allround Developmentfestival was therefore organized at Yangon University to carry out literary and other educational programs. It is a joint effort of the MoI and the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health and Sport and the Yangon Region Government. For literary research and literary studies, research and readings on papers are also made. F: Could Your Excellency tell me the durability of Myanmar's writing?
Since Myanmar's encyclopaedia is released around the 1950', effort is being made with the Tun Foundation to reissue it. Unparalleled work is the publication of Myanmar Literature Selections, which includes 100 volumes and booklets. The Myanmar Encyclopaedia is due to release a new release this year. Burma is home to 135 indigenous groups.
You use your own languages and literary skills. Readings on ethnical groups' literatures were given in Kayin State and Shan State. Q: Please describe the Municipal Centre to the general population. A. The library in each IPRD bureau has been converted into communal library and communal centres.
Literary developmentprogrammes establish literary corner and broadly discuss issues such as politics, economics, society and employment possibilities in which human beings express their sentiments. F: As far as conversation is concerned, what new chapter can the ministry open? In order to provide information and maintenance, the employees themselves take part in the programs and outside specialists are welcome to do so.
F: My last and last questions is what the Ministry is doing for the film' s further developement in Myanmar. In the film sector, MoI promotes the growth of the film sector. It is being carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, the Ministry of Construction, the Nay Pyi Taw Council and the Motion Picture Association.
Can you please say to what degree the place of the press in Myanmar is important? In our own state, the medias play a very important part. This is more important to us than in other states because the challenge facing the transitional phase to democratisation is greater than in other states.
Celebrations in the countryside are attracting the interest of the world' s press and the wider public. Due to some of the big issues that the nation has faced since the colonisation era, these issues have not been resolved correctly and have become more complicated. It is only seven years old and the press was free about five years ago.
Concerning the medias, there are both national and internationals medias in the state. The state' s main mediums are public and privately run. Both in and outside the state, the press informs fans about upcoming happenings in the state. If policies relating to a particular state are adopted by the global public, they are largely founded on the images of that state represented by the global press.
It is therefore important to handle the global press in a systematic manner. Myanmar's public and non-governmental press have been lagging behind for half a century-and-there have been problems telling the rest of the rest of the world about it. F: What action has been taken on the press during the two years in power?
The state and non-governmental networks act as a link between the state and the three mainstays of law, management and justice. Acting as a watch dog, the medias should criticize the achievements of these three columns in a sound way and communicate their results to the population. We therefore recognise the important part played by the mass communication industry and try to make the most of the opportunities offered by the communication channels.
Accessibility and free movement of the public are the most important elements for all members of the public. To encourage the public sector to appoint spokespeople for the relevant agencies, to focus on answering the questions of the masses and to publish messages that do not compromise the safety of the nation in the first place on web sites and in the public network.
For the employees of the relevant department, we provide training in dealing with the press and organise seminars to build teamwork. F: Could you please tell me the roadmap for my mediums? A. Once every two week, guided tours are organized for the national and foreign press to tour the North Rakhine State to which the interest of the world is directed.
A standard procedure for the change of the Act, which must be changed, and for the creation of a new Act, which is necessary, will be developed for the mediadress. And we also welcome the representatives of the global press who suggest we should see them. F: What is your communication to the press?
A. We fully support the creation of autonomous, accountable and self-regulated communications and we also recognise that this is not good enough. There are many problems and challanges, so I would ask all representatives of the press to work with us with a great deal of perseverance.
