PIA Press Release

RADIO fine-tunes skills for amplified info jobs

by Rey Anthony Chiu

Tagbilaran City (29 August) -- To reduce the clutter often generated by haphazard news writing, Regional Association of Development Information Officers (RADIO) in region 7 fine-tuned their skills to re-amplify government information dissemination especially in the looming energy crisis.

During the regional consultative conference held at the Bohol Plaza Resort August 24-26, 56 information officers from region 7 had inputs on Ethics and the Press, Libel and Avoiding the editor's trash bin.

The inputs were determined by the host and convenors knowing that government information programs need to be packaged more attractively to see print. The conference earlier hoped to enhance skills of information officers for effective communication.

Present were members of the Cebu Association of City and Municipal Public Information Officers (CAOCAMPIO), Siquijor Association of Information Disseminators (SAID), Association of Negros Oriental Public Information Officers (ANOPIO), Association of Government Information Officers (AGIO) and host Association of United Development Information Officers (AUDIO) in Bohol.

Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Director General Renato Velasco who was the keynote speaker dared the information officers in the region to start a strong information dissemination program to buffer the impact of a global oil crisis which will have a "domino effect that is very adverse to the Filipinos."

Governor Erico Aumentado, in his message also challenged the information officers to help the government in the propaganda war. He admitted that the government is losing the propaganda war brewed by the opposition and "noisy cause oriented groups."

Several groups have pointed to an allegedly defective leadership and the local oil deregulation law as the culprits behind the oil crisis in the country.

Velasco said that the oil crisis in the international market is definitely not caused by a government policy. He then dared those in the conference to start a "massive and systematic information dissemination" against this. (PIA) [top]
