Havana (VNA)
– A delegation of the Vietnam Journalists’ Association (VJA) led by its President Thuan Huu paid a working visit to Cuba from September 18-25, with the purpose of exchange experience in press management and development.

During its stay, the delegation had a working session with the Cuban Journalists’ Association (UPEC) led by its acting President Aixa Hevia.

Aixa Hevia stressed the importance of professional training and improving journalists’ ethics.

He said new tools and expanded scope of press activities pose challenges to journalists while also bringing more opportunities for them.

Thuan Huu, who is a member of the Party Central Committee and Editor-in-chief of Nhan dan (People) newspaper, shared the VJA’s experience in inspecting the observance of regulations related to professional ethics and protecting journalists’ legitimate rights and interests.

Thuan Huu proposed the VJA, which is currently President of the Confederation of ASEAN Journalists, and the UPEC, which is Vice President of the Latin American Federation of Journalists, work as a bridge to develop ties between the two regional associations.

The VJA delegation also met Jose Ramon Balaguer Cabrera, head of the Cuban Communist Party Central Committee’s Department for External Relations, and several Cuban journalists who are parliamentarians.

The delegation also visited and had working sessions with leaders of Granma and Juventud Rebelde newspapers, Prensa Latina news agency, Radio Rebelde and José Marti International Press Academy.-VNA
