Reports presented at the conference showed that press management agencies well performed their role in guiding and orienting press activities as well as actively built plans and coordinated with sectors and localities in providing information related to the country’s key events and issues for the press.

Over the past time, press agencies also focused on implementing the national press development and management plan up to 2025 which was approved by the Prime Minister.

Speaking at the conference, Politburo member, Secretary of Party Central Committee (PCC) and Head of the PCC’s Commission for Communication and Education Vo Van Thuong praised the important contributions of the journalism sector and journalists to the national development over the past time.
