Media praised for contributions to national achievements

The media's performance last year and plans for this year were high on the agenda of a meeting on Tuesday, attended by representatives of Government and media agencies. Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission on Education and Communications Vo Van Thuong hailed the media's significant contributions to Vietnam's achievements over the past year.

"As the vangard in the ideology front, the media have been very helpful for the Party and State leadership and management. We want to hear prompt feedback from management agencies on issues raised the media", Thuong said.

The public address system, which has sparked heated public debate over recent months, was a topic for discussion at the meeting. Voice of Vietnam President Nguyen The Ky stressed that the system will be brought into full play if it is well managed in both content and timing.

"The public loud speaker system is essential in disseminating local information in a specific residential area", Ky elaborated.
