Al Jazeera DG spells out development plans
DOHA THE Director-General of Al Jazeera network HE Sheikh Ahmad bin Jasim al Thani on Wednesday met with the network’s employees at the Al Jazeera Training and Development Centre Theatre.
The meeting discussed the recent achievements of the development project and the network’s future plans.
At the meeting, HE Sheikh Ahmad highlighted the plans the management is implementing for making the organisation more effective.
He said part of the plans is to explore new ways to free journalists from the administrative tasks so that they have enough time to do journalism and contribute to the network’s ongoing innovation, as well as providing all the adequate working conditions required for that innovation.
The DG told the employees that their full rights were guaranteed together with a dynamic career development programme in order to help them cope with the upcoming phase.
Sheikh Ahmad said that the Al Jazeera spirit urges its staff to carry on with the implementation of the best practices on which a unique model can be built. He also pointed out that the aim of the meeting was to ensure the staff members give their best to make Al Jazeera the best media network in a competitive world.
“While aiming that Al Jazeera acquires this institutional atmosphere which compensates its employees and develop their skills, transparency obliges us all to inform you about the progress of the project of developing Al Jazeera and the future plans,” Sheikh Ahmad said.
Al Jazeera network has started developing Al Jazeera News Channel, Al Jazeera Live and Al Jazeera Egypt Live through partnership with Thomson Media Foundation in order to maintain the networks leadership role in the field.
