The leader introduced the guests to the VNA’s structure and functions, which is a State-owned press agency with a network of bureaus in all 63 provinces and cities in the country as well as across all five continents in the world.

The VNA is the only media organization in Vietnam that has been honoured with two Hero titles, namely the Labour Hero of Doi Moi (Renewal) Period and the Hero of the People’s Armed Forces during the Resistance War for National Salvation Period.

After more than six decades of development, the VNA has grown into a reliable source of information for the Party and the State, and a prestigious news agency in the region, looking forward to become a multi-media group.
