NDO - Nhan Dan Newspaper, the central organ of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the voice of the Party, State and People of Vietnam, held a ceremony on March 9 to mark the 67th anniversary of the publication of its first print issue (March 11, 1951).

The editor-in-chief, Thuan Huu, said that over the past 67 years, Nhan Dan has seen remarkable developments to become a multimedia organisation with print and online editions as well as a television channel.

The online versions are available in Vietnamese, English, Chinese, French and Russian while a Spanish edition is also in the work.

The media organisation’s leader stated that the publications are undergoing renovations in both design and content in order to provide comprehensive coverage and attract more readers.

In a visit to the newspaper headquarters earlier this week, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc praised Nhan Dan as a pioneer in realising the commitment of a disciplined, action-oriented, creative and effective government.

Nhan Dan has a network of correspondents in all of 63 provinces and centrally-governed cities as well as in five countries: China, France, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.

On this occasion, Nhan Dan’s editorial board decided to award orders of merit to 23 reporters and editors for their substantial contributions to the newspaper.
