NDO – Over the past 67 years, Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper has successfully accomplished its task as the Party’s political and ideological flagship publication with great contributions to the revolutionary cause of the Party and nation.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc made the statement while holding a working session with Nhan Dan Newspaper in Hanoi on March 5 to mark the 67th anniversary of the launch of the paper (March 11).

Speaking at the session, the Government leader highlighted the important role played by the newspaper, which serves as an official information channel for the Party and a core force in the press and ideological front while representing the voice of the Party, State and people.

The newspaper has also contributed to promoting major national movements and fighting against red tape, corruption, negative phenomena, and hostile forces, he noted.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc called for more in-depth and timely reports, as well as analysis and commentaries on socio-economic and political events to direct public opinion and better serve the needs of the people.

Amid the fourth industrial revolution 4.0, the newspaper needs to continue to build on past achievements and tap into the existing multimedia model to contribute to the Party and State’s leadership and directions on the work of the press, the PM added.

The PM said he hoped that all of the newspaper’s staff would continue the paper’s glorious tradition, upgrade their skills, and comprehensively improve the quality of associated publications to meet new demand.
