NDO - The 39th edition of the National Television Festival opened on December 12 in the south central province of Khanh Hoa in the presence of Vo Van Thuong, head of the Central Commission for Communication and Education.

In his remarks, Thuong stated that television is taking the lead in communication work, and in the struggle against distorted and hostile views, thanks to its advantages in moving images and technology.

He noted that 2020 is a highly significant year in which local Party congresses will take place in the lead-up to the 13th National Party Congress. 2020 is also a year with many major national events.

The Party’s communication chief asked that the press, including television, needs to step up their media campaigns about these events as well as the significant achievements gained during the tenure of the 12th National Party Congress.

He said that each media agency, television station and channel needs to pay attention to Party building activities, attaching importance to enhancing the political resolve and professional capability of their reporters and editors.

The National Television Festival is an annual event honouring the best television works. This year, the organisers have received nearly 500 works from 100 television units, competing across nine categories.

The closing ceremony is scheduled to take place on December 14.
