|Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung |
On behalf of the Party Committee and leaders of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, I would like to extend congratulations to the leaders, reporters, editors, and other employees of Vietnam Investment Review on the occasion of the first issue of its 30th anniversary.
Over 30 years of development, VIR has become a leading business press office and a reliable bridge connecting investor, business, and social communities with the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) and other related Party and state authorities as well as local authorities and policymakers.
VIR strongly reflects its key role in transferring objectively and timely the orientations, guidelines, and policies of the Party and state as well as the activities of the MPI. It is successful in promoting the attractive business and investment environment of Vietnam to foreign investors and business communities in Vietnam and worldwide. At the same time, through VIR publications, business communities can share their opinions and suggestions to contribute to draft policies compiled by the MPI and other governmental agencies.
I highly appreciate the efforts of the editorial board, reporters, and editors of VIR in maintaining and upholding the core values, goals and missions of an official press office of the MPI. VIR’s publications always adhere to the Party and state’s orientation and direction with interesting and in-depth articles that withdraw the favourites from readers. I am honoured to congratulate VIR for many achievements and successes in its missions, which have been honoured with many prestigious national and international awards, including the Vietnam National Press Award, the National Press Award for Building the Vietnam Communist Party, and so on. Thanks to those fruitful achievements and successes, VIR has received numerous medals and certificates of merits awarded by the Party, the state, the government, and related ministries and local authorities. I hope that all of VIR’s crew always keeps in their hearts these valuable and proud achievements, and consider them a motivation to develop sustainably and achieve many more victories.
I greatly appreciate the efforts of VIR in actively contributing to the corporate social responsibility and charity campaigns hosted by the MPI. VIR’s charity and social activities, as well as scholarship programmes for excellent students, contribute to spreading kind-hearted support to the poor and disadvantaged people, following the MPI’s spirit of leaving no-one behind.
I also praise VIR’s editorial board and all of its reporters, editors, and other employees for their efforts to promote the democratic spirit and create a professional and friendly working environment, as well as to take care of all employees’ lives, especially during the serious impacts of the pandemic.
The country is entering a new development chapter, and the whole country and its political system are striving to implement successfully the Resolution of the 13th National Congress and the national socioeconomic development strategies and plans, set out for the coming period. As a strategic consultant for the Party and the state, the MPI has a glorious but heavy responsibility to complete the duties with the highest efforts of all entities. I propose that VIR continuously strengthens its spirits for innovation and creation to fulfil successfully its missions of the MPI’s press office. VIR shall continue communicating objectively and effectively the information in planning and investment, especially promoting strategic consultant work and improvement of the business environment to remove difficulties for investors and businesses. VIR continues with its analyses that promote the Party’s and the state’s policies, orientations, and opinions to create unity in society, mobilising internal and external resources effectively to build Vietnam more powerfully.
Stepping into a new development era, I believe that this is a great opportunity for all of VIR’s editorial board, reporters, and editors to strengthen their achievements, enhance internal solidarity, and improve knowledge and experience in professional and political skills to fulfil the missions as granted by the MPI, and to further develop the press office.
I wish VIR great success and many more achievements.
