At a ceremony announcing the decision, the Prime Minister congratulated Quang, who will take office on April 1, and expressed his appreciation of the efforts and contributions of incumbent General Director Tran Binh Minh to the development of VTV.

VNA quoted that the Prime Minister noted that over the past half a century, VTV has always fulfilled the political tasks and missions of a national television station, as it took the lead on the ideological front and helped safeguard national independence, sovereignty, and territory and the fight against wrong and hostile viewpoints to protect the Party’s ideological foundation.

It has also contributed to the economic, social, and cultural development of Vietnam, the popularisation of the country’s image among international friends, and the dissemination of Party and State policies and directions, he said.

The PM asked VTV and its staff to remain aware of their responsibility for orienting public opinion, inspiring aspirations for development, fighting against wrong and hostile viewpoints to protect the Party’s ideological foundation, giving feedback on Party guidelines and State policies and laws, and helping to improve people’s intellectual standards.

He also pointed out the need for VTV to adopt a new strategy and vision that are practical and feasible in optimising cyber space, along with the importance of personnel training to serve the performance of its duties.

In his speech, Quang expressed his honour at being entrusted by Party and State leaders and VTV staff, and thanked Tran Binh Minh for leading the station to many major achievements.

He promised that in his new position, he will join VTV’s leadership to uphold the station’s traditions to weather every difficulty and challenge to develop VTV on par with its status as the national television station.
