The aim of the meeting was for the PROs to provide information, for purposes of filing   relevant reports by close of day each Friday on the Ministry of Information Online Reporting (Bonsu) platform.

It was also to solicit for the views, ideas and suggestions from attendees on how agencies under the MELR could support the Ministry of Information in effectively and efficiently sharing information with the public and also on the Online Platform. The meeting took place at the Conference Hall of the Ministry.

In all, a total of 30 participants attended the session. Out of the number, PROs were thirteen (13) in number.
