HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnam News Agency (VNA), the country's official news agency, opened its information centre in Ha Noi this morning to boost its efforts to provide information on the capital city.
The centre will deliver VNA's multimedia publications, including the printed newspaper, online newspaper and television shows.
It is expected to meet demand for news and information in the city, especially on key national events and the all-level Party congress heading towards the 12th National Party Congress.
The six-storey building at 21 Pham Dinh Ho Street, Hoan Kiem District, is also a key construction to mark the 70th anniversary of VNA.
VNA General Director Nguyen Duc Loi spoke at the centre's inauguration ceremony, saying he expected the centre would provide vivid information on all aspects of life in the capital city.
He called on the staff at VNA's Ha Noi-based office to improve their expertise and operate the centre effectively.
Head of the municipal Party Committee's Department for Propaganda and Training Ho Quang Loi said that for years, the VNA and its office in Ha Noi had worked professionally in the media sector with a great deal of responsibility and deep love for Ha Noi.
Thousands of reports by VNA provided information to the domestic and international media, helping to build up the city's image, Loi said.
Vice party secretary of the Ha Noi Party Committee Ngo Thi Thanh Hang was also in attendance at the inauguration ceremony of the information centre.
The state-run VNA is responsible for publishing official information and documents related to the party and state and providing information in service of the party leadership and state management, while collecting and providing news in various formats to mass media agencies, the public and readers of all kinds, both at home and abroad.
VNA has offices in all 63 provinces, as well as 30 offices in 28 countries. — VNS
