Register now for ABU News workshops

ABU News is holding two workshops in January 2024.

All members are invited to send staff to the workshops, which will be held on 24 January in Kuala Lumpur (reporting elections and news for digital platforms) and in Ho Chi Minch City on 13-14 March (multiplatform news production).

With elections in the world’s three biggest democracies scheduled for 2024, including two in ABU member countries Indonesia and India, the first workshop focuses on election coverage issues and reporting tips. It will include planning considerations, social media tools for identifying the issues that matter most to voters, fact checking and verification options, journalist ethics and guidelines for responding to breaking news. The half-day workshop will include fact sheets and practical exercises, including advice on preparing for live interviews.

The digital news workshop will feature a special session on data journalism and data visualization, plus case studies and exercises on maximising engagement and reaching new audiences on social media. 

All members are invited to nominate participants by emailing Nerina Rosli at
