The Labour Party (PT) of Mexico would spare no effort to create the best conditions for reporters and editors from the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) who go to the Latin American country for further training on their skills, said the PT chief.

Additionally, the PT was ready to expand cooperation and support VNA in printing and distributing the Vietnam Pictorial Magazine in Mexico, PT General Secretary Senator Alberto Anaya Gutierrez told VNA General Director Tran Mai Huong in Hanoi on June 14.

General Director Huong thanked the PT executive board and the PT General Secretary in particular for their help to VNA in training reporters and editors, and for experimentally printing and distributing the Vietnam Pictorial Magazine in Mexico.

He highlighted VNA’s personnel training, saying that with the PT’s help, VNA would have a contingent of reporters and editors with good skills in the Spanish language and knowledgeable about Mexican culture, and they would become an important bridge to enhancing relations between VNA and the PT.

The General Director told the PT delegation about VNA’s operations, affirming that relationships with news agencies and organisations played an important role in VNA’s development strategy.

VNA publications have regularly covered information on the Latin American region, including Mexico, in recent years, General Director Huong said, adding that VNA would exert more efforts to contribute to the common goal of developing friendship and cooperation between the Communist Party of Vietnam and the PT, as well as between Vietnam and Mexico.

Within the framework of the common plan to carry out the cooperation agreement between the two parties for the 2010-2015 period, VNA and the PT signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation. Under the MoU, the party will receive four VNA reporters and editors for further training in Mexico each year.

Additionally, the party helped VNA experimentally by printing and distributing Vietnam Pictorial Magazine in the Spanish language in Mexico.

The MoU also included VNA commitment on disseminating information about PT activities./.
