Vietnam News Agency (VNA) on June 7 held a ceremony to mark the 65th National Patriotic Emulation Day (June 11) and review two years of implementing the campaign “Studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example”.

Speaking at the event, VNA General Director Nguyen Duc Loi reminded participants of Uncle Ho’s teachings on patriotic emulation.

Through periods, VNA has remained one of the leading units in patriotic emulation movements and in popularising and encouraging these movements, General Director Loi said.

He stressed that during the fights against French colonialists and American imperialists, VNA staff overcame many difficulties to combat and implement information tasks to serve the revolutionary cause.

In the renovation period, the agency is still the Party and State’s official national news channel providing reliable, accurate information to all people, as well as rejecting distorted or untrue information by hostile forces on the country’s socio-economic development, the VNA leader said.
