KỶ NGUYÊN JOYFULLY CELEBRATE THE 97TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VIETNAM REVOLUTIONARY PRESS DAY!
The upcoming 21st June will mark the 97th anniversary of the Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day (21st June, 1925 – 21st June, 2022). This holiday not only marks the birth anniversary of one of the pioneering publications of Vietnam’s revolutionary journalism, but also an opportunity to honour the contributions of journalists nation-wide who have always completed the works, excellently fulfilled the sacred mission entrusted by the Party and People.
Since the 60s of the 19th century, the national press has witnessed the birth of newspapers in Hanoi, Saigon and a few other localities, the most prominent of which is “Gia Định Báo”. In the early 20th century, amidst the exciting atmosphere of successive revolutionary movements, the newspaper “Thanh Niên” – founded by leader Nguyễn Ái Quốc on 21st June, 1925 – opened a brand new line of press: Vietnamese Revolutionary Press. Since then, the Vietnamese press has raised a new revolutionary flag, clearly showing the national wills and aspirations to regain the independence; supported the movement to fight for independence and freedom, following the socialist trends of our people.
Because of that great significance, the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam issued Decision No. 52 on 5th February, 1985, taking 21st June every year as Vietnam Press Day, with the mission of praising the contributions of the Communist Party of Vietnam. of the collective of journalists; as well as the recognition and difficulties and sacrifices of journalists in timely conveying news and guidelines of the Party to the people. On 21st June, 2000, the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam decided to change the name of the anniversary to “Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day”.
On this special anniversary, Kỷ Nguyên would like to send best wishes to generations of journalists of the country. Wish everyone will receive meaningful, warm and happy honours and gratitude with colleagues and relatives.
