BBC to open news bureau in Burma

Dec 03, 2013 (Menafn - M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --The BBC will open a news bureau in Burma, also known as Myanmar, BBC Director of Global News Peter Horrocks announced today.

The announcement comes after the BBC, along with three other international broadcasters, received official permission to open a news bureau from the Myanmar Ministry of Information.

The BBC aims to open its bureau next year. It will also house reporters from the BBC Burmese service.

Peter Horrocks says: "Burma has long been a byword for media repression and censorship but within the last year there has been rapid and welcome change, with BBC global news services being allowed to broadcast trusted impartial news on radio, television and mobile. Opening a BBC bureau in Burma/Myanmar is another highly significant milestone and an encouraging sign that the country is moving towards media freedom.

"The BBC will continue to stand by its principles of impartial, balanced journalism, reporting events in Burma without fear or favour. The BBC's charity BBC Media Action will continue its work to help train the next generation of Burmese journalists."
