Enhancing Vietnam’s press efficency

                                                            Vietnam's newspapers


Nowadays, the press is an important part of our life, contributing greatly to the development of society and the country. To better understand the operation of the press in our country and its direction in the future, in this article I would like to share with you something!
Currently, Vietnam has 838 press agencies, including 199 print publications, 67 radio and television stations and 17,000 licensed reporters.
In recent years, the strong, positive and rapid progress in the performance of the national press has been seen in successfully publicizing the Party and State’s policies and laws and the aspirations of the people.
The press has discovered new factors, advanced models, making significant contributions to the achievement of national development and international integration. The press has also played an important, active role in fighting corruption and other social evils…
Particularly, the press has been active in protecting national sovereignty over borders and sacred sea and island territory of the country; democratizing the social life; strengthening people's confidence in the Party and Government and creating consensus in society.
In the field of external information, the press has provided international friends and overseas Vietnamese around the world with an accurate and clear insight into the nation and people of contemporary Vietnam, as well as the policies and laws of the Party and State. This has helped win the support of the Vietnamese community abroad and international partners, particularly in national growth.
As principles, purposes, objects stipulated in the establishing license, most press agencies have functioned properly and ensured truthful information. That has been contributing to political stability, raising people’s knowledge and meeting the cultural needs of people.
However, some of the sector’s shortcomings, including the poor quality of some agencies, a worrying trend towards the commercialization of news and a lack of caution in professional practices, leading to inaccurate information occasionally being published. In these press agencies, leaders have not managed and educated ideology for reporters, editors properly. They have lacked attention in building and operating procedures, not sensitive in handling situations. Some journalists even violate journalistic morals...
To have a appropriate number of press agencies and publications, with higher quality, better service  provided for the readers, the radio listeners, audiences and society as a whole, the Government is building a plan containing principles.
First and utmost, the press is a forum of the Party and State agencies, social organizations and the people. The press is placed under the leadership of the Party, the State's management and operates as prescribed by law. The goal of the national media planning in 2020 to build a more professional and modern journalism sector, meeting the information needs of people and serving national construction, defence and development as well as international integration.
The press’s development must go hand in hand with good system management to ensure that media and press agencies perform their functions, tasks, principles and objectives, consistent with the development trend of modern press and improving the quality of politics, culture, science, professional press.
To fulfill its mission, the press should further promote its role and responsibility in raising awareness, belief, orienting social opinion, as well as actively participating in the fight against distorted allegations, wrong and hostile opinion; focus on propagandize effectively the direction and policies of the Party, State and becoming a truly forum of the people./.

There is another important thing that we also have to invest more money for the press development.

Huy Quốc 23/3/14 18:30

About the investment, in my opinion, the Gov and the press both have to take care. The Gov invest money and create policies for the press to earn money by itself. I think that's the best way.
