Hanoi, Vietnam News Agency ink cooperation deal

Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung highlighted the role of the press as an information bridge between the capital city and other localities in the country as well as the international community. 

He thanked the VNA and other centrally-run press agencies for their full coverage in all media forms of the situation in the capital city, and pledged that the city administration will provide full and accurate information to the press. 

VNA General Director Nguyen Duc Loi appreciated the municipal administration’s assistance to reporters of the VNA in their work. 

He said the timely provision of information of the administration for official press agencies is important in providing the public with accurate reports, preventing groundless and distorted rumours from spreading. 

The State-owned VNA is a major news agency in Southeast Asia with more than 1,300 reporters and editors, and a network of representative offices in all 63 cities and provinces of Vietnam and 30 in foreign countries. Besides the five main editorial departments, it runs a TV channel - the V-News -, an online newspaper – VietnamPlus in five languages -, and various publications. 

Under the cooperation agreement with Hanoi for 2012-2016, VNA published more than 24,000 news stories about the capital city in various media forms and in various languages, covering the latest developments across the fields in the city.
