Angola: State-owned TPA Prepares Staff Training Project Launch


The Angolan Public Television (TPA) will launch this week in Luanda a staff training project, with the aim of improving the quality of its service, ahead of the introduction of private competition into the Angolan market.

According to TPA’s announcement, the project is intended to improve the quality of TPA's service, by providing refresher courses to over 80 of its national staffs, until the end of 2009.

The training will be done in all of the station's production areas. The document also states that TPA's channel 2 will be improved with entertainment programmes, mainly directed at young people.

The announcement reiterates that both TPA 1 and 2 will remain public channels, and that there are no plans to privatise either of them.
