New Vanuatu daily faces technical challenge

4:57 pm on 27 June 2003

The publisher of Vanuatu's first daily newspaper says its launch has posed a technical challenge.

Marc Neil-Jones says the Daily Post is being produced with new software, replacing techniques used to produce the Trading Post which has now ceased to exist.

Mr Neil-Jones says the new paper's set up is more modern than that of other regional dailies but it means staff work longer hours.

"The big challenge for us is that all the staff are having to learn new software programmes and get to grips with new templates that have been done for re-designed pages. We've got a completely new system in place and with any new system, there's a learning process."
