HA NOI (VNS) — Thirty-four outstanding examples of journalism, among nearly 400 entries reporting on National Assembly (NA) activities, were awarded on Monday as part of the 70th anniversary of Viet Nam's NA.
The journalism contest, entitled "70th anniversary of Viet Nam's National Assembly" and launched by the NA Office and Viet Nam Journalists' Association three months ago, received 396 entries of all media types, that represent vividly differing views and angles to report NA activities, according to chairman of the NA Office, Nguyen Hanh Phuc.
The news stories also helped the public learn fundamental information about law making and new policies, bringing the NA closer to the people, he said. Phuc noted that during its 70 years of development of Viet Nam's National Assembly, the press always accompanied the legislature. Hundreds of news agencies, media and newspapers joined in reporting on the National Assembly agenda and work conducted during NA Standing Committee meetings. Also, a club for NA journalists was established to better connect journalists with NA activities.
"Journalists accompany the National Assembly to allow for more interesting and profound reports, so that the NA become closer and closer to voters," Phuc said.
