Pedro Lomba, Secretary of State, visited the EditorsLab on Friday morning. Pedro has the curiously long title of “Adjunct Secretary of State of the Adjunct Minister for Regional Development”.
Pedro publicly stated his enthusiasm for technology. He believes that journalism is not over, because individual creativity is not over.
As long as there is a need to know what is going on there will be a need for journalism.
People need stories, of knowing what happens.
— Pedro Lomba, Secretary of State
Pedro pledges to improve the professional culture of journalists, with an upcoming program of innovation. There are plans to sponsor the participation in ten professional trade shows, in order to show what is being done in Portugal, including at EditorsLab.
