HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc is urging the media to serve as a bridge linking the country’s businesses and the State.
At a meeting in Hà Nội yesterday with journalists participating in a programme on the press’s interaction with enterprises and business people, the Government leader said journalists enable Government and State agencies to learn about the views of businesses on various issues, including the implementation of policies and guidelines, thus helping improve State management.
The PM also emphasised the media’s role in building brand names for enterprises, promoting their products and spurring their operations. By covering all socio-economic spheres, the press has significantly contributed to rooting out corruption and wastefulness, the leader added.
Other participants at the event said the media helped businesses overcome their limitations in terms of international economic integration, and underlined the need for the two sectors to increase their mutual support and understanding.
It is necessary for journalists to respect the law and steer firms towards lawful business practices, they said, calling on them to play a more active role in uncovering violations of the law committed by either State management agencies or businesses in order to create an equal and transparent climate. — VNS
