In her key note address the Fako Communication Delegate congratulated GVN journalists and Management on their priceless services to humanity reminding them on the need to uphold key journalism ethics and principles like truth and accuracy, independence, fairness and impartiality, humanity and accountability in the exercise of their function. She disclosed that her goal for 2018 is to equip journalists in Fako with skills on Crises Reporting and Peace Building and Election Reporting.

Officially welcoming the Divisional Delegate, GVN’s Editor-in-Chief  gave the background/historical evolution of the paper, the governance structure and staff strength, vision, goal and objectives, achievements and areas of coverage of the paper. He also presented key challenges facing the paper including epileptic readership & sales, lack of adverts & press releases from private and state corporations/institutions, difficulty in GVN distribution with the gradual departure of MESSA PRESSE and lack of access to information from private and state corporations/institutions. The Editot-in-Chief recommended that the Delegation mediate for easy access to information as well as enlist GVN in the coverage of key national events within the Division.  He equally presented other sister publications of GVN like the Impact Magazine, Cameroon Biodiversity Business Newsletter, A-GSAC Newsletter and centres like the ERuDeF Centre for Environmental Film Making and Photography & ERuDeF Centre for Environmental Information Management.
