The PM hailed the newspaper as a “flag of thoughts” in Vietnam’s revolutionary press as many of its articles deal with important scientific evidence on the Party guidelines and the State’s legal policies.

He said amidst the fourth industrial revolution 4.0, the paper needs to continue building on the past achievements and tap the existing multimedia model to contribute to the Party and State’s leadership and directions on the press work.

The leader suggested further improving the quality of publications to increase readership and building a staff with political firmness and professionalism.

In the lead-up to the 13th National Party Congress, the paper is required to closely grasp social developments and raise new initiatives to make practical contributions to the nation.

Editor-in-chief of the paper Thuan Huu said the outlet has always well performed its political tasks, raised public awareness of the Party guidelines and State policies, as well as covered domestic and foreign affairs.

As an official news channel of the Party, State and people, Nhan dan newspaper now boasts 10 publications with a staff of over 750 editors, reporters and officials, focusing on raising public awareness of Party building, fighting corruption and preventing wastefulness, behaviors of degradation in political thoughts, self-evolution and self-transformation, sabotaging wrongful and distorted allegations by hostile forces and political opportunists./.
