HÀ NỘI — Tin Tức (News), a newspaper under the Vietnam News Agency, was granted the Labour Medal, first class, at its 40th anniversary (May 14, 1983 - May 14, 2023) held on Friday in Hà Nội.

Speaking at the ceremony, Editor-in-Chief of the newspaper Ninh Hồng Nga said this is the recognition of the Party and State for the achievements of many generations of devoted journalists who have worked hard to cultivate the development of the newspaper as well as the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and the revolutionary press in general.

Over the past four decades, the newspaper has constantly innovated to adapt to development. Despite many difficulties ahead, the newspaper will always take tradition as a guideline, take the trust of readers as motivation to continue to maintain its prestige and carry the motto of being reliable and timeliness while being the bridge between the Government and the people.

VNA General Director Vũ Việt Trang said, established in the early 1980s, the newspaper has welcomed the country's Đổi Mới (Renewal) in a period of new ways of thinking and doing things. Its reporters have immersed themselves in the vibrant socio-political life, reflecting not only daily changes, but also hidden corners in the renovation process.

Its investigation series that reflects burning issues in society, or articles that object, expose the plots of agitators and opponents,… have had a strong impact on society, making an important contribution to the implementation of the political mission of the VNA.

Members of the editorial board and reporters have always shown themselves to be skilled writers, quick to grasp issues, deploy and build quality news and articles that are trusted by the public to read. With these efforts, its reporters have continuously won high prizes at press awards competitions.

She said that through each time of restructuring or when it faces difficulties, people here become more mature and continue to assert its prestige name with bold, official and accurate content.

According to General Director Trang, in recent years, Tin Tức has made a stronger breakthrough as it quickly applied new communication methods, and distributed information on multiple platforms. This is the general trend of modern journalism. In order to do that, Tin Tức reporters changed their thinking about journalism, their journalism methods, to become more versatile and agile.

The newspaper has made efforts to overcome difficulties in the light of limited resources. Its multimedia news products have become more and more mature and have had a ripple effect. Solidarity, creativity and determination have created the strength and brand of Tin Tức, she said.

The General Director also expressed her hope that Tin Tức reporters will continue to uphold the tradition, constantly update their knowledge of modern journalism and continue to focus on improving the political and professional skills of journalists.

Improving the quality of information and how information is presented, meeting the requirements of readers while still serving as the mainstream information flow in the whole journalism industry, is a vital requirement not only for the newspaper, but also for entire VNA, she said.

The newspaper has many journalism works that won Vietnam News Agency Press Prize, the National Press Award, the Golden Hammer and Sickle Award, and the National External Information Award.

With its achievements, Tin Tức has been awarded many noble emulation titles by the Party and State such as the first, second, and third-class Labour Medals, and Certificates of Merit from the Prime Minister, VNA, ministries and branches. — VNS
