NDO/VNA – The Defence Ministry held a scientific seminar on the White Book of Defence of Vietnam in Hanoi, on October 11.

Standing member of the Central Military Commission and Deputy Defence Minister, Nguyen Chi Vinh, who is head of the steering committee for the compilation and publishing of the White Book, said the 2018 edition aims to spread the viewpoint, directions and policies on national defence of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Central Military Commission.

The White Book also provides information on the building of people-based national defence, the people’s army and external cooperation in defence.

The Deputy Minister said the book will serve as material for training in the Party’s defence and military guidelines and the State’s defence policy for officials, officers, soldiers and people, in order to raise their awareness of the task of national defence in the new situation.

He noted that the publishing of the 2018 White Book of Defence of Vietnam is also aimed at publicising the country’s national defence.
