HÀ NỘI — The heads of representative Vietnamese agencies abroad for the 2016-2019 tenure should help bring home new, modern communication methods to serve the country’s external communication programmes.
Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Publicity and Education Võ Văn Thưởng made the suggestion at a meeting between the Commission and the Steering Committee for External Information Service with the country’s representatives in Hà Nội yesterday.
Thưởng, Politburo member and Party Secretary, said the representative Vietnamese agencies abroad serve as a bridge to bring Việt Nam’s news to the world and vice versa, including coverage about the Party and State’s policies and guidelines, the country and its history, culture and people, as well as Việt Nam’s stance on regional and global matters.
He asked the representatives to continue realising the Politburo’s Conclusion 16 on external information development for 2011-2020, the Government’s action programme on external information for 2013-2020 and a scheme on improving external information works of representative Vietnamese agencies abroad.
The officials were asked to rally support from the authorities, media, businesses and Vietnamese nationals in their host countries and make forecasts on any developments involving Việt Nam, putting forward solutions to complex and sensitive cases. — VNS
