Media managers meet with Finance, Labour officials


The official said so while addressing the opening of a meeting he had with the ministers Finance and Labor, Employment and Social Security, Archer Mangueira and Jesus Maiato, respectively.

Minister Melo said that public media companies must be run by competent and serious managers, whether linked to the journalistic field or not.

He also explained that the main problem does not rest with the organs’ editorial policy or content, but instead with their management.

This, he added, justifies the need for the presence of the Finances minister to help find better ways to settle the problems facing the communication sector.

According to the official, the media companies are not there just to come up with complaints, but to start doing something to improve their domestic management.

João Melo added that this is the first commitment of the media sector to doing well towards overcoming management problems, assuring the willingness of the institutions to improve.

However, he mentioned other needs of the sector that will require the intervention of the Finance Ministry.
