Local and foreign-resident journalists and media professionals look forward to working together following the recent signing of a cooperation agreement between the Costa Press Club and its Spanish counterpart the 'Asociación de la Prensa de Málaga y el Colegio de Periodistas en Málaga'. Professional training and employment opportunities are among areas where the two organisations hope to collaborate.
The Costa Press Club, which is the voice of foreign-resident journalism, was represented at the meeting in Malaga by the club's president, Jesper Sander Pedersen, and secretary Joanna Styles, while the agreement was signed for the association representing Spanish media professionals by its president Rafael Salas and vice president Carlos Pérez Ariza.
Sander Pedersen said that in the international environment all media professionals work in, it is particularly important to maintain strong links and exchange information and experience.
Salas emphasised the essential role of the foreign media not only in communicating with foreign residents, but also in taking the image of Spain abroad.
