QUẢNG NINH — The coastal province of Quảng Ninh on Wednesday announced the establishment of a provincial-level multimedia communication centre.
The centre was founded by merging the four provincial media outlets – the Quảng Ninh newspaper, Quảng Ninh television and radio station, Quảng Ninh web portal and Hạ Long newspaper – with some 400 staff members working as reporters, broadcasters and technicians.
It is the first provincial-level communication centre in the country.
It aims to provide multimedia training for journalists to equip them with the knowledge and skills to apply information technology in their profession.
The centre is under the management of the Quảng Ninh Provincial Party Committee, working in compliance with the Press Law and national press planning.
Mai Tuấn Vũ, a committee member, was appointed the centre’s director. He used to be the deputy director of the province’s television and radio station and the director of the province’s Department of Information and Communications.
The establishment of the centre was based on a thorough review of the challenges facing the four media outlets, conducted by the Quảng Ninh Publicity and Training Commission last year. — VNS
