KATHMANDU: A team from the Asian Media Cultural Association (AMCA) is currently on a visit to Nepal. During their visit, the team aims to exchange knowledge and experiences on the practices, relationships, and challenges of journalism across borders.

On Thursday, the AMCA team interacted with students and faculty of the Kathmandu-based Shepherd College of Media Technology, a college known for its media studies programs.

The team, which comprises experienced journalists from Sri Lanka and India, discussed the purpose of their visit, as well as journalistic practices in Nepal, India, and Sri Lanka, according to Kavita Sharma, the college principal. Journalism students at the event inquired about the challenges faced by journalists in India and Sri Lanka.

The visiting journalists acknowledged some similarities and differences between journalism in Nepal, India, and Sri Lanka. They concluded that journalists in all three countries face similar challenges regarding government policies and professional security.

Sanjhana Paudel, coordinator of the AMCA Nepal chapter, explained that Nepal was chosen to host this program as part of the organization's ongoing initiative to organize annual "Media Familiarization, Cultural & Tourism through Media" programs in member countries.

The team, which also includes Nepalese journalists, visited Lumbini (birthplace of Buddha), Hetauda (capital of Bagmati Province), Janakpur (famous for the Janaki temple), and various locations in the Kathmandu Valley, according to Paudel. The team is also scheduled to meet with officials from the Nepal Journalists' Association and President Ram Chandra Paudel.

The delegation, consisting of 11 members, is visiting Nepal from Chaitra 25 to 30. They will be contributing news content about various topics to media outlets in their respective countries.
