OANA 44: VNA making active contributions to OANA goal realisation

As the host of the 44th Executive Board Meeting of the Organisation of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) from April 18-20, the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) has affirmed its role at the regional multilateral press forum.

The Hanoi meeting, themed “For a professional and innovative journalism,” will gather leaders of the 44 OANA member news agencies from 35 countries.

The OANA was established in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 22, 1961, at an initiative of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

It aims to facilitate information dissemination and exchange between news agencies in Asia-Pacific – a dynamic region that makes up more than half of the global population.

The OANA members, including many major agencies, are responsible for two-thirds of information circulated throughout the world. Everyday, they publish around 200 news stories, photos and video clips on the OANA website at http://www.oananews.org/.
