SYDNEY — The Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and the Australian Associated Press (AAP) have signed an agreement to enhance co-operation and the exchange of information.
The agreement was inked by VNA General Director Nguyễn Đức Lợi and APP CEO Bruce Davidson at AAP headquarters in Sydney, Australia, on Thursday.
The agreement aims to help further foster links between the two news agencies and strengthen the partnership and effective co-operation between media firms in Việt Nam and Australia.
Under the agreement, the two sides will exchange English-language news stories and high-quality photos, thus meeting the increasing information demand of both countries’ people.
At their talks before the signing ceremony, VNA General Director and APP CEO Bruce Davidson discussed future bilateral co-operation, which will focus on providing support for each other’s correspondents and co-organising training programmes for reporters and technicians.
As members of the executive board of the Organisation of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA), the two sides stressed the importance of practical and effective professional co-operation.
They also compared notes on challenges facing news agencies and media firms worldwide.
During his stay in Australia, Lợi also had a working session with representatives from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
