HA NOI — The Vietnamese media has played an important role in creating consensus within the Party, people and the army to help reach the Government's socio-economic targets, according to To Huy Rua, Politburo member and Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Organisation.
Rua made the comments while addressing a gathering of media workers in the capital city yesterday on the occasion of the Lunar New Year.
Rua praised the media's contributions to national defence and security as well as to improve Viet Nam's prestige in the international arena.
Dinh The Huynh, politburo member and Head of the Party Central Committee's Communication and Education Commission, said the Vietnamese media was very proud to have the confidence of the Party and State and the love of the people.
"A very important and urgent task of the media these days is to turn the Resolution of the 11th Party Congress into reality," said Huynh.
"In your stories you should shed light on the Party's ideology, points of view and guidelines so that readers, including party members, will turn them into practical deeds to make sure that by 2020, our country will become a modern industrial nation," Huynh added.
He also asked the media to be socially responsible in the cause of building the homeland and the process of renewal.
Do Quy Doan, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, asked the Vietnamese journalists to pursue more stories that reflect the fine culture traditions of the Vietnamese people while criticising bad practices during Spring festivals.
Politburo member Truong Tan Sang congratulated the Cong san (Communist) Review on its achievements while warning it to be ready for new difficulties and challenges during his New Year visit yesterday.
"The success of the Party has been greatly helped by the contributions of the magazine," Sang said.
He said it was the magazine's responsibility to strengthen a consensus of Party ideology and national political unity, while supporting society's faith in national development and disseminating information about the 11th National Party Congress Resolution.
The magazine needed to exert more efforts in an attempt to spearhead the fight against the peaceful evolution process while supporting the Party's thoughts and arguments, Sang added.
Sang said he wanted officials, reporters and editors at the magazine to continue to use their unceasing creativeness while diversifying to make information more available to the public in its role as the Party's political voice.
Member of the Party Central Committee and Communist Review Editor-in-Chief Ta Ngoc Tan pledged that the magazine would continue its renewal process and improve the quality of information.
