The US Presidential Election Reporting Seminar was a 12-day professional study and reporting tour designed for working print, broadcast and online journalists. This special seminar enabled participating journalists from Afghanistan, China, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Vietnam, to report before, during and after the US presidential election from key states in the American electoral system. Coordinated meetings and visits provided journalists with an extensive knowledge and understanding of the US election process, policy issues and American voter attitudes, thereby enhancing a journalist’s coverage of the US presidential elections to audiences back home.
