A report entitled ‘Portrait of freedom of the press and access to sources of information in the exercise of the journalistic profession in Macau,’ produced by the Macau Portuguese and English Press Association (AIPIM) was delivered yesterday to the Director of the Government Information Bureau (GCS) and Spokesperson of the Macau SAR Government, Victor Chan, by AIPIM representatives.
The report was made public on September 27.
