HÀ NỘI – The Ministry of Information and Communications on Friday launched a contest themed “Việt Nam-International Integration Process” for journalistic works.
The goals of the contest are to raise awareness of central and local agencies, organisations, enterprises and the public about Việt Nam’s international integration process; promote domestic preparedness, especially with regard to economic integration; inform local businesses and overseas Vietnamese businesses of the benefits and the challenges of integration in the context of globalisation, the ministry said.
The contest is also aimed to contribute to the effective realisation of Việt Nam’s integration commitments, especially in connection with free trade deals to which Việt Nam is a signatory, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership TPP or the Việt Nam-Eurasian Customs Union free trade agreement, according to MIC.
The written pieces must satisfy a number of criteria, including an appropriate reflection of the policies of the state and the party, along with accurate and effective dissemination of information and understanding of the language. New findings and perspectives are encouraged.
At the ceremony, Deputy Minister of MIC Hoàng Vĩnh Bảo called for quality journalistic articles that contribute to the nation’s development and promote Vietnamese people and culture, Việt Nam’s achievements in the ‘Đổi Mới’ and international integration processes, aimed at overseas Vietnamese and international community.
The contest is open to all Vietnamese citizens, journalists and press agencies.
Journalistic works entered in the contest need to be in text form – published between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016 – either in print or online. Works with relevant illustrative photos are also appreciated.
The deadline of submission is from October 15 to December 31, 2016.
Finalists’ announcement and the awards ceremony is expected to be held in March 2017.
Contest’s rules are available on MIC’s info portal (www.mic.gov.vn) and other mass media outlets. -— VNS
