Advertising and public relations firm FD Communications Ltd has contributed K200,000 towards the Blantyre Press Club’s first annual general meeting scheduled for Mangochi.
Speaking at the presentation of the cheque, PR & Corporate Communications Director Frank Phiri said the company is proud to be associated with the development of the journalism profession in Malawi which the BPC seeks to promote.
“FD Communications as a media company works very closely with journalists in various disciplines. As a multi-disciplined journalism body, the Blantyre Press Club is a unique grouping which is at the heart of the journalism industry in Malawi. We are therefore very proud to be partnering with them as they go to their AGM where they will discuss issues aimed at further strengthening their organization and its operations,” he said.
Phiri said FD Communications is keen to see the growth of independent, and objective journalism which the BPC seeks to harness.
“The BPC comprises a vibrant team of upcoming and young journalists who represent the future of journalism and media in Malawi. We at FD Communications will continue to support the work of the Blantyre Press Club, and look forward to their further growth in structures and operations,” he said.
In his acceptance remarks, BPC Secretary General and MBCTV journalist Simeon Shumba thanked FD Communications for responding to the club’s appeal for assistance towards meeting costs for the AGM. “FD is a true friend and partner of the media as they have responded swiftly. We cherish this partnership,” he said.
FD Communications, formerly ZK Advertising International, has been operational in Malawi since 2006 providing integrated corporate communication, reputational risk management and brand-building services to the private and public sector.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
