Later the same day, Politburo member Hai also hosted a meeting with the leaders and reporters from press agencies in Hanoi.

With the largest number of press agencies operating in the country, Hanoi has received timely attention from the media and each of its steps of development and achievements have been comprehensively reflected on by the news agencies. For that reason, Politburo member Hai expressed his gratitude to the journalists for always accompanying Hanoi with the wish of further improving the capital city.

He emphasised that the press is an important information channel and a key bridge to connect the municipal authorities with local residents. He also urged the local authorities to be more active in coordinating with the press in order to effectively perform their political tasks.
