NDO - The Party Committee of Ho Chi Minh City held a get-together on June 19 to mark 94th anniversary of the Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day.

In his remarks, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan spoke highly of the journalists’ contributions to the development of Ho Chi Minh City and the nation as a whole, stressing that with formidable challenges lying ahead, the journalists should enhance their dedication for the country’s stability and development.

He expressed his hope that media agencies nationwide will continue upholding the glorious tradition of the Vietnam’s revolutionary press and be responsible for the city’s growth.

A similar event was also held yesterday at the headquarters of the Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper in the presence of Thuan Huu, Party Central Committee (PCC) member, Editor-in-chief of the newspaper and Deputy Head of the PCC Commission for Communication and Education.
