Scoop Takes You To East Timor And Inside APEC

Wellington internet based news agency Scoop - http://www.scoop.co.nz/ - today proudly launched an internet based special focussing on the rapidly unfolding events in East Timor and in Auckland at the APEC summit.

The new web based information resource, which went operational this afternoon, is presented with the assistance of nzedge.com

In addition to comprehensive coverage of the APEC summit itself - with the full text of statements and releases from world leaders, interest groups, protesters and - the web page provides context through real-time updates on events in East Timor.

The site features coverage from the summit itself where Scoop's Auckland reporter Selwyn Manning is handily positioned to cover the summit in an apartment on K-Road. Photographs are being supplied by Jason Dorday.

Events in East Timor over the past fortnight were the inspiration for putting the site together.

Scoop's Alastair Thompson says the intention is to create an environment where a dialogue can take place on the merits of trade liberalisation and the relationship between trade, politics and human rights.

"In addition to providing the public with an interior view of events at the APEC summit in real-time, we want to encourage a constructive debate on the globally important issues raised by the crisis in East Timor," Thompson says.

Over the three-week period the Scoop East Timor/APEC Special is in operation Scoop will be inviting expert commentators, columnists and journalists to add their views to the dialogue.

The web-special is accessible through Scoop at
