NDO/ VNA – Hanoian authorities held a meeting with representatives from central-level and Hanoian news agencies on June 17, on the occasion of the 92nd anniversary of Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day (June 21, 1925 – 2017).
Chairwoman of the municipal People’s Council, Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, acknowledged the role of the press in capturing the progress of Hanoi’s growth and building the image of a dynamic capital city.
She expects that the news agencies continue to cover the local political and socio-economic affairs, whilst reflecting the voice of the city’s residents, organisations and businesses, which would be conducive to its policy making and management.
Participating journalists took note of the city’s prompt disclosure of pressing issues, but urged local authorities to be more open to the public.
Previously, as the press day came closer, leaders from the municipal Party Committee, People’s Council and People’s Committee, visited and congratulated journalists at the Vietnam News Agency, Voice of Vietnam, and People’s Army Newspaper, among others.
