STAR Media Group (SMG) hosted a Singaporean government delegation at Menara Star in Petaling Jaya.

Led by Singapore’s government communications chief Janadas Devan, the guests were briefed on the history and operations of the media group before being given a tour of the newsroom.

The guests visited the group’s Content Department where they had a first-hand look at the news-gathering and reporting procedures for print as well as online platforms.

Later, during a closed-door meeting, there was an opportunity to exchange views on the media landscape in both countries.

Accompanying Janadas were Singaporean Prime Minister’s Office Communications Group senior director Yap Neng Jye, Communication and Information Ministry (CIM) Media Division senior director Ho Moon Shin, CIM Media Analytics and Operations department senior manager Syahidah Md Sodri, CIM Joint Communications Centre senior manager Yusfarhain Yusoff and Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur Public Affairs first secretary Syed Arafat.

The guests were joined by SMG chief content officer Esther Ng, chief news editor Paul Gabriel and corporate communications and social impact unit assistant manager Julianne Jean de Souza. – By MEGAT SYAHAR
