Kien Giang (VNA) – How to improve coverage of Party building work was the main theme of a workshop held by the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and Department of Information and Communications of the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang on April 12.

VNA Deputy General Director Le Quoc Minh said journalists and press agencies should be aware that the coverage of Party building work should direct the flow of information and public opinion on new matters as well as issues of public concern such as the fight against corruption, wastefulness and other bad deeds.

Besides, it is necessary to promote new, creative models and examples in Party building, Minh said.

Delegates at the workshop underlined the need to develop a contingent of journalists who are enthusiastic about Party building and have firm political will, good ethics and professional knowledge.

They also said coordination of the information and education sector, relevant ministries and agencies, and local authorities is necessary to help journalists access accurate information sources.

Nguyen Thien Can, deputy head of the Kien Giang provincial Party Committee’s Information and Education Board, was of the opinion that press agencies should seek new ways of reporting about Party building work.

He also proposed maintaining and launching more specialized pages and columns devoted to Party building, and increasing broadcasting durations to promote the work.-VNA
