Thai Foreign Affairs Ministry holds talks with Vietnam News Agency

HCM CITY (VNS)— Media agencies of Viet Nam and Thailand will have more opportunities to develop in the future, leading to better co-operation between the two countries, the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday during a working visit with Vietnam News Agency in the Southern Region.

Nuttavudh Photisaro praised the ongoing co-operation in information exchange between the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Thai Consulate General in HCM City with the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) in particular.

"Vietnam News Agency has played a very important role in providing information about the Thai country and people and has contributed to stronger ties between the two countries. I hope we continue to receive this kind of support from the agency in the future," he said.

He said the meeting in HCM City would also help to promote co-operation between the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Vietnamese media, particularly the VNA.

At the event, the Thai deputy permanent secretary said he wanted to learn more about the Vietnamese Government's policies on educating the public about the establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015.

Speaking at the meeting, Nguyen Tien Le, director of VNA's Office in the Southern Region, said the VNA and other media agencies in Viet Nam would disseminate necessary information as well as preparations to the public and enterprises prior to the establishment of the ASEAN Community. — VNS
