The Vietnamese press has traversed a formidable 98-year trajectory, continuously adapting to the diverse hues and currents of the socioeconomic tapestry, playing an instrumental role in the nation's fortification, and impelling innovation, integration, and growth.

Each stage has witnessed distinct manifestations and methodologies in fulfilling this service-oriented vocation, all while collaborating, uplifting, and propelling many development objectives.

Reaffirming the pivotal significance and proactive impetus of information dissemination, Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung underscored, "The revolutionary press emerged in 1925, five years preceding the establishment of the Communist Party and two decades prior to the triumphant revolution. This narrative epitomises the momentousness and visionary essence of information exchange. The revolutionary press stands as a vanguard and a thought leader."

"For nearly a century, the press has assiduously focused on content creation, wielding the power of the written word and inked parchment with scant regard for technological concerns. However, digital technology has emerged as the cornerstone of productivity across all domains, particularly in the realm of journalism. Unquestionably, the foremost-reaching impact of digital technology permeates the texture of the press and media landscape. Harnessing digital technology as a journalistic medium has become an existential imperative for the press," he said.

Recognising the importance of the digital media transformation, the prime minister approved the Digital Media Transformation Strategy on May 6. To implement this strategy effectively, the Ministry of Information and Communications has established the Digital Media Transformation Support Centre under the Ministry of Information and Communications' Authority of Press.

According to Luu Dinh Phuc, director general of the Authority of Press, the goal of digital media transformation is to leverage technology to overcome the obstacles faced by media agencies. The aim is to provide customers with a superior experience, increase viewership and listenership, boost advertising revenues, and effectively serve the need for information.

The inception of the Digital Media Transformation Support Centre will invariably bolster media agencies in their endeavours to effectively meet the digital transformation goals outlined in the Digital Media Transformation Strategy by 2025, with a vision towards 2030.
