Shanghai Daily recently published an article (see below) written by Takeshi Kokubu, senior editor of The Nishinippon Newspaper.

The article is about the outcomes of the fourth session of the Asian City Journalist Conference (ACJC), which was held in Fukuoka City, Japan on December 14, last year.

Kokubu was the moderator of the conference which drew journalists from eight countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

The participating newspaper organisations were The Nishinippon Newspaper (Japan), Busanilbo Daily News (South Korea), Saigon Giai Phong Investment Finance Newspaper (Vietnam), Philippine Daily Inquirer (the Philippines), Prachachat Business Newspaper (Thailand), KOMPAS Jakarta (Indonesia), Lianhe Zaobao (Singapore) and New Straits Times (Malaysia).

Unfortunately, Shanghai Daily was not represented last year.

UN Habitat Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (Fukuoka), The Nishinippon Newspaper and Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism were the organisers of the 4th ACJC.
