The Communist Review newspaper was honoured with the Ho Chi Minh Order for the second time during a ceremony marking its 85th founding anniversary (August 5th) in Hanoi on August 4th.

On behalf of Party and State leaders, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong presented the accolade to its staff.

Founded by Nguyen Ai Quoc who was also Editor-in-chief, the Communist Review has successfully fulfilled its function as a political and theoretical body of the Party Central Committee.

Throughout its history, the paper has grown in stature, contributing to disseminating and defending Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh thought as well as political education and Party theory development, Editor-in-chief Vu Van Phuc said at the ceremony

Looking back at the past 30 years, it has been at the forefront of spreading Party policies, State laws, core issues regarding Party building and socio-economic-cultural affairs and national defence-security and diplomacy.

Its collection of theoretical studies has provided evidence and reference for policymaking, he added.

In his speech, Politburo member Dinh The Huynh, Secretary of the Party Central Committee and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Popularisation and Education, called on the review’s staff to recommend ideas for policymaking based on theory and realities at home and abroad.

For the foreseeable future, it was asked to prepare documents for submission to the 12th National Party Congress and improve the quality of each article.

The review should take initiative in countering wrongful opinions and hostile allegations as part of Party safeguard efforts, he said.

Huynh expressed his confidence that the Communist Review staff, with their firm political stance and professional skills, will continue their excellent work and do deserve the trust of the Party, State, people and readers nationwide./.
