The Registrar General also used the opportunity to present her achievements since ascension to office in December 2020 and establish her first step towards establishing professional and mutually beneficial relations with the media

Although the Registrar General meets the media more formally at the traditional press conferences during URSB activities, this meeting gave her the opportunity to discuss a number of important topics in a more informal setting.
