The Macau Portuguese and English Press Association (AIPIM) has been informed by the Secretariat of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) that it has been accepted as associate member of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) during a meeting of IFJ's Executive Committee, held on the 18 and 19 of November in Tunes, Tunisia. 

In a statement, the AIPIM said it “warmly welcomes this decision with a sense of duty and responsibility.”

“Joining IFJ has been an objective of our members over the years,” it said. “Becoming a member of IFJ is especially meaningful not only for AIPIM members but for the whole of Macau’s journalistic community. AIPIM becomes the first Macau journalists’ association to join the world’s largest and most important international journalists’ organization. 

“Joining IFJ will allow AIPIM to strengthen our role in standing for core-values such as freedom of the press, access to information, right to information, journalists' rights and ethical values.”

A number of Inside Asian Gaming’s journalists are members of the AIPIM.
