Follow-up and achievments
Summary of the project implementation: 
UNESCO signed a contract with the Star Newspaper for the recruitment of an international team of experts to conduct courses on: Management essentials for Administration Managers, People Management for Editors, Sales and Management Team, Skills for Sales and Management Team. All these courses were organized during the month of January 2003. The management of the Daily Star Newspaper has prepared a videocassette on the different training courses and this will be shared with other media institutions in Lebanon as well as, on demand from other regions. The training of the Daily Star Newspaper staff is one of the very few projects executed by the UNESCO/IPDC in Lebanon. The management's commitment to continuous and further training of its personnel demonstrates the recognition by newspaper publishers/owners of the importance of training in media institutions. The decision of the Daily Star Newspaper management to share its training experiences with other newspapers by producing training videocassettes indicates a path of sharing training experiences and expertise, that could be followed by newspapers worldwide.
