Politburo member and Permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat Vo Van Thuong said the press must continue to renew itself to truly become an accurate, timely, powerful, influential and responsible channel of information in society.

He proposed the Journanists’ association actively adopt action programmes and specific and substantive activities to continue increasing its position, role, quality and operation efficiency.

The Congress elected a 52-strong Executive Committee and an Inspection Committee with 15 members for the 2020-2025 tenure.

Le Quoc Minh, member of the Party Central Committee, Editor-in-Chief of Nhan dan Newspaper and Vice Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education, was elected President of the association.

In this tenure, the association will continue reforming and increasing its role and prestige in journalism activities and the social life, thus contributing to building a humane, professional and modern Vietnamese revolutionary press for the benefits of the country and the people./.
