CEO of AFP Emmanuel Hoog (L) with twofour54 Chief Executive Officer Noura al-Kaabi The AFP Foundation signed on Sunday with Abu Dhabi-based information and entertainment centre twofour54 a partnership agreement for training journalists in the Gulf region. The training courses will be run by Arabic mother-tongue journalists employed by AFP in the Middle East or North Africa and will focus on enhancing a wide range of professional media skills.
The agreement was signed in Abu Dhabi by twofour54 chief executive Noura al-Kaabi and Emmanuel Hoog, CEO of Agence France-Presse and president of the AFP Foundation.
"The AFP Foundation's partnership with twofour54 tadreeb is very exciting. The media industry in the UAE and the wider Arab world is growing rapidly," said Hoog.
"It's very satisfying for AFP Foundation to work in partnership with twofour54 tadreeb to contribute to this growth and we look forward to developing courses especially tailored for journalists here," he added.
Kaabi also welcomed the agreement which she said "helps us to reach our objective of developing and enhancing the skills of media professionals in this region."
"The programmes will upskill established journalists and introduce new journalists to the profession, helping to create a sustainable media industry for the region and ultimately adding value to the news that the general public consume," she said.
