The course navigates the beautiful scenery of Bangkok’s Lumpini Park – creating a wonderful setting for this worthy event.

The course is a 1.2 kilometer loop within Lumpini Park with start and finish at the Lumpini Park Open Air Theater.
The funds raised by the Pan Pacific Bangkok Walk 4 Women 2009 will be donated to the National Cancer Institute to assist with research and support for cervical cancer patients.

The graduation ceremony for students of the latest Indochina Media Memorial Foundation (IMMF) course was held November 14 at the Amari Rincome Hotel, and was presided over by IMMF’s Executive Director, Sarah McLean. The month-long course, entitled ‘Ageing Asia’, involved students from Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand, and was sponsored by Swedish Government Aid, arranged by the evening’s guest of honour, the Director of the Swedish Environmental Secretariat for Asia, Christer Holtsberg.
IMMF seeks, by contributing to the development of journalism, to build a better future for the region. Launched in 1994 by journalists, its original aim was to assist colleagues who were emerging from war, poverty and isolation. Since then the foundation has conducted 21 major training courses in the fields of print and broadcasting journalism as well as news photography.
In his speech, Christer told the graduates that he had great hopes for a more unbiased media and more efficient journalism. Ngo Phan Ngat Phuong from Vietnam, one of the graduates, explained to the Mail’s reporter that, “The course has helped me to realize the importance of accurate information, to organize a hard news story in the correct manner, and to be aware of the rules of good photography.”
