Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked media agencies nationwide to make ceaseless renovations so as to further promote their core role in providing information for the people during a meeting with journalists nationwide on June 21 on the occasion of the 91 st anniversary of the Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day.

“Journalists must be continually innovative and creative to find out new methods and contents in order to meet the people’s demands,” he said, adding that the success of the press contributes to protecting the Party and the socialist regime as well as developing the country.

Hailing journalists’ efforts over the past years, he noted that the increasingly complicated regional and global situation requires more attempts of the media in the cause of national protection and development.

He expressed hope that Vietnam’s revolutionary press will continue to effectively popularise the Party and State’s policies and laws, while rejecting wrongful allegations and creating social consensus.

The PM also called on journalists to join the cabinet’s efforts to build a professional and modern administration system and an incorruptible, transparent and effective government.

The press should also make more contributions to the reform of administrative procedures to better serve people and businesses, he added.

During the meeting, reporters also voiced their proposals to the government on how to enhance the efficiency of coordination in carrying news on the government’s activities, as well as specific policies to increase the effectiveness of the media system.-VNA
