The Ministry of Finance hoped media and press agencies would continue cooperating with the ministry to enhance communication and public budget management publicity, according to Minister Dinh Tien Dung.

Speaking at a ceremony to sign a media cooperation agreement among the Ministry and the Nhan Dan (People) newspaper, the Vietnam Television, the Vietnam News Agency and Radio The Voice of Vietnam, Dung hailed the effective and active contributions of the media and press, saying they have helped raise public awareness and understanding of relevant legal documents and policies.

He also highlighted four key publicity campaigns to be promoted by the media and press, including comprehensive measures to effectively implement fiscal policies and administrative reform, particularly in taxes, customs, and the state treasury.

Focus will also be dedicated to restructuring public investment and state-owned enterprises and improving management of public debt, energy and consumer-goods prices.

Under the agreement, the media and press are also to cover the financial sector’s activities, including events to mark the 70 th founding anniversary of the sector (August 28, 1945).

On behalf of the four press agencies, editor-in-chief of the Nhan Dan Newspaper Thuan Huu said they have highlighted the role and efforts of the ministry in stabilising the macro-economy, controlling inflation, ensuring social security and boosting production.

He also expressed his hope that the ministry and its bodies would facilitate access to the sector’s information for the media organisations, ultimately contributing to the nation’s reformation and development.-VNA
