Lam Dong (VNA) - The Vietnam Journalists Association (VJA) on April 22 officially launched its portal at the sites: www://hoinhabaovietnam.vn, www://nhabaovn.vn and www://chandungnhabao.vn.

At the launching ceremony held in Da Lat city, the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, VJA Vice Chairman Ho Quang Loi said the portal is expected to intensify communication related to the association, and provide right guidelines for press agencies nationwide.

It will also work to call on its members to abide by law and ethics of Vietnamese journalists, while serving as a useful forum for journalists to share their experience and knowledge.

The Vietnamese-English bilingual portal will also be an important information channel to prevent corruption, wastefulness and other negative phenomena.

It is integrated with other portals of member agencies, linking and sourcing news from many press agencies across the country.

On the occasion, the VJA presented emulation flags to 12 organsations and certificates of merit to 33 organisations and individuals for their contributions to the association’s development in 2016.

The VJA was established on April 21, 1950 and chaired by the late journalist Xuan Thuy, who was also a diplomat and a Party leader, for two terms from 1950 to 1962. 

The association currently has more than 20,000 members across the nation. 

Over the past 67 years, the VJA has made great contributions to national liberation and development. Its correspondents bravely covered stories firsthand from battle fields and are continuing their tireless efforts to report news, photos and footage daily.-VNA
