Politburo member and Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) Dinh The Huynh has called on journalists nationwide to uphold the tradition of revolutionary press and to overcome difficulties and shortcomings so as to disseminate information on the nation’s renewal process and its construction and defence in a thorough, profound and righteous manner.

At a meeting with national media on Feb. 19, Huynh, who is also Head of the CPVCC Commission for Popularisation and Education, said 2013 is a significant year for implementing the Resolution of the 11th National Party Congress and the 10-year socio-economic development strategy designed to turn Vietnam into a modern-oriented industrialised nation by 2020.

In the immediate term, media agencies need to disseminate the Party’s Resolution and those of the National Assembly and Government, public opinions on the draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution and national patriotic movements, he said.

Huynh highlighted journalists’ contributions to the implementation of the CPVCC resolution on the Party building work.

He commended media agencies on their diverse information and new contents, and take note of their efforts in fulfilling their assigned political tasks of disseminating all resolutions, the “Studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example” campaign, socio-economic development tasks and the safeguarding of national sovereignty.-VNA
