Vice Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission Phung Xuan Nha said the leadership and direction over the external information service and communications about seas, islands, and land border-related issues this year have been carried out in a uniform, consistent, and timely manner, mobilising the engagement of the entire political system and creating widespread consensus.
He noted that diverse, multidimensional, and persuasive information has been provided to popularise Viet Nam’s viewpoints and policies on the settlement of issues relevant to the border, seas, islands, and human rights, those attracting public attention like the COVID-19 fight, as well as the country’s contributions to international efforts towards peace, security, development, and progress.
Chairman of the Information and Education Commission Nguyen Trong Nghia, who is also head of the steering committee for external information service, emphasised the focal tasks for 2022, asking the forces involved in the work to reform the mindset in the work to guarantee to the highest possible the interests of the nation and the people and help raise the prestige and stature of the country and the Communist Party of Viet Nam in the international arena.
In addition, they need to resolutely fight against wrongful viewpoints and distortions, stay proactive in terms of information, and effectively respond to any circumstances and incidents.
The official also demanded the continued reform of content and diversification of methods for disseminating information in foreign languages, thus creating information products meeting the requirement of international and national development in the new context.
On this occasion, the commission commended the collectives and individuals with outstanding performance in the external information service and communications about seas, islands, border demarcation, marker planting, and land border management in 2021.
