Tra Vinh (VNA) – A delegation of the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), led by General Director Nguyen Duc Loi, had a working session with leaders of the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh on November 24 to discuss cooperation in communications for the 2021-2025 period.

Loi, who is also a member of the Party Central Committee, said the VNA is a Government agency that publishes the Party and State’s official information and documents, provides information at the Party and State’s request, and collect and disseminate information via different forms of journalism to serve mass media outlets and domestic and foreign readers.

It has bureaus in all 63 provinces and cities nationwide and in many important places around the world, an advantage that no other Vietnamese press agencies have, he said.

The VNA can cooperate with Tra Vinh to popularise the province’s potential and strengths to domestic and foreign press outlets, Loi added.

At the meeting, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Ngo Chi Cuong thanked the VNA for its good performance in covering socio-economic and security-defence aspects of Tra Vinh, helping to spread the province’s image around the world.

He expressed his hope that the VNA will continue assisting Tra Vinh to report on its socio-economic achievements, outstanding results in implementing policies in ethnic minority and religious communities, as well as accomplishments in new-style countryside building and poverty reduction.

The official also suggested the VNA help introduce Tra Vinh’s cultural identities, people, potential, and strengths to international friends./.
