Speaking at the ceremony, Secretary of the Party Central Committee (PCC) and Head of the PCC’s Commission for Communication and Education Nguyen Trong Nghia affirmed that over the past 92 years the communications and education sector has become an inseparable part of the revolutionary cause of the Party and nation.
As an important basic factor of Party building and a “sharp weapon” of the entire operation of the Party, communications and education work has contributed to developing the political foundation of the regime and the spiritual foundation of the society, he added.
He also urged the sector to continuously innovate and improve the efficiency of their operations, thus contributing to building a clean and strong Party.
On August 1, 1930, the Commission for Propaganda and Communications of the Communist Party of Vietnam published a document titled “International Red Day, August 1”, which attracted the great attention from people and mobilised revolutionary masses in the country to fight against imperialism and oppression while opposing aggressive wars and supporting the national liberation movement.
In 2000, the Politburo decided to choose August 1 as the anniversary day of the Party’s communications and education sector.
