A national conference
reviewing external information work, including publicising information
on sea, islands and border demarcation in 2012, and defining
orientations and tasks for 2013 took place in Hanoi on March 18. 

Addressing the event, Politburo member and Secretary of the
Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) Dinh The Huynh,
said one of this year’s focus is to raise people’s awareness of the
significance of the work. 

He also stressed the need to improve
the efficiency of the external information work to garner more support
from overseas Vietnamese and international friends for Vietnam ’s
policies. 

Huynh, who is also Head of the CPVCC’s Commission for
Popularisation and Education and the Steering Committee for External
Information Service, urged relevant agencies, local authorities and the
media to popularise the Party’s viewpoints and the State’s policies and
laws regarding important national and regional issues, including the
collection of public opinions on the draft amendments of the 1992
Constitution. 

He required that ministries, sectors and
localities devise a plan on external information work and the
dissemination of information on sea, islands and border demarcation,
which, he said, will contribute to successfully implementing
socio-economic development tasks and safeguarding national security and
defence. 

The participants heard reports analysing shortcomings
in this work and put forth specific solutions to raise the efficiency
and quality of external information work in 2013. 

At the event,
the Commission for Popularisation and Education presented certificates
of merits to 20 units and 20 individuals in recognition of their
contributions to the work.-VNA
