Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper is the central organ of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the voice of the Party, State and People of Vietnam. The first issue was published on March 11, 1951, in the Viet Bac revolutionary base (present-day Thai Nguyen Province) during the anti-French Resistance War.
Nhan Dan Newspaper has promoted the tradition of Thanh Nien (Youth) Newspaper, which was founded by President Ho Chi Minh on June 21, 1925, as well as the Tranh Dau (Struggle), Dan Chung (The Public), Co Giai Phong (The Flag of Liberation), and Su That (Truth) newspapers.
Nhan Dan Newspaper has established friendly and co-operative relations with numerous newspapers around the world.
During the nation’s two resistance wars for national liberation and reunification as well as the national construction for building Vietnam as a strong country with prosperous people and a democratic, equitable and advanced society, Nhan Dan Newspaper has stood on the frontlines to safeguard the nation, serving as the voice of the Party and State and a trustworthy forum of the people.

It has also reflected the opinions, aspirations and initiatives of people from all walks of life while participating in reviewing and perfecting reform policies.
