The Voice of Vietnam also held a ceremony to mark the event in Hanoi on the same day. Deputy General Director Vu Hai said VOV has been carrying out the emulation movement by renovating and improving program quality to better disseminate party guidelines and state policies. Hai said: “We have rallied all employees including technicians, reporters and artists in the emulation movement. We have actively participated in the movement to follow President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example and patriotic emulation movements to turn VOV into a leading multimedia organization in Vietnam.”
To mark the occasion, VOV announced President Truong Tan Sang’s decision to confer the Independence Order, first class, on Phan Quang, former President of the Vietnam Journalists’ Association and former General Director of the Voice of Vietnam.
