It is obvious that the development of the media system not only helps the people to satisfy their cultural curiosity and broaden their knowledge, but that it also provides a public forum for the discussion and even refutation of government policy at all levels.

the media system is truly an instrument to protect social benefits and the rights of the people, especially in supervising law enforcement.

To ensure the development of the media system, in addition to specific regulations enshrined in the Constitution and laws, the Vietnamese State always pays attention to refining the legal system to enable the mass media to fulfil their duty and promote the freedom of speech and freedom of press in Vietnam.

In today’s world, freedom of speech and freedom of the press are crucial factors to the stability and development of each country. They are also representative of that country’s concept and policy on human rights.

despite Vietnam’s achievements in human rights, hostile forces and some unfriendly organisations and individuals often cite articles in these treaties to fabricate that there is “no freedom of speech and freedom of the press” and to accuse Vietnam of “violating freedom of speech and freedom of the press”.

Hostile forces and some unfriendly individuals abuse the mass media to exert negative impacts on society and capitalise on the enforcement of the law to slander the Vietnamese State.
