The Department of Communications will use all communication tools available to get the information to the public creating a seamless integrated, reliable reporting system involving CITV, together with traditional and social media.
The public is looking for information in short, interesting, easy to access sound and visual pieces. Communications provides information that is easily accessible and layered. The first layer comprises radio and print ads; 30 – 60 second social media videos; and social media postings. These tools give brief descriptions of Government’s programmes, services, initiatives and policies. The second layer of detail is available on this portal providing information on how to access services.
