Reacting to the good wishes, encouragement, and suggestions for improvement on the occasion of VIR's 30th anniversary, the editorial board published a message to thank readers and media partners for their support throughout all these years.
Dear valued readers,
A successful businessman recently confided to Vietnam Investment Review’s editorial board that, over almost 20 years of his company’s development, the newspaper has contributed significantly to creating his business values.
That heartening story is recalled at a special time, when VIR is celebrating its 30thanni¬versary this week. How inspiring and proud it is when the VIR crew is offered such kind words! But on the other hand, we consider this sharing as a kind of pressure, bearing in mind that we are always expected to do a better job.
The past 30 years of VIR’s journey has been associated with the duty of creating values for the business community, and we have received a lot of plaudits and appreciation for what we have done. Nevertheless, the VIR crew is well aware that there are still many more business people and investors out there in the marketplace, demanding a better performance from US in order to be a more effective bridge and a closer friend. We must contribute to their higher values and give them a hand in making a breakthrough to develop further, as we have attempted over the past three decades.
Though such demands are always placed on all VIR generations, they come as a more significant question these days as the business community struggles to overcome unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and when the entire global economy is witnessing unforeseen developments.
The answer can only come from our improved efforts. That means at VIR, we must continue to foster a team of professional journalists who understand the expectations of the readership and are able to grasp and respond to the ongoing economic and press trends and developments, strengthen our close relationship with the business and investment community, and receive support from state management agencies.
And for the editorial board, journalists, editors, and other staff at VIR, we are looking forward to your continued support just as it has been during the past 30 years, to meet your expectations.
On the occasion of our 30"' birthday, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you.
VIR editorial board
