History of Revolutionary Press Day in Vietnam 

Almost a century ago, a newspaper called Thanh Nien published its first issue. Other newspapers were also published in Vietnam before Thanh Nien. But Thanh Nien was not just any newspaper, it was a newspaper founded by Ho Chi Minh – the most important revolutionary figure of the Vietnamese Communist Party (VCP). Thus, to honor reporters and journalists in Vietnam, the day Thanh Nien published its first issue was designated as Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day.

Vietnam's press system contributes to national development

In the conference to unify Vietnam’s communist organizations and found the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) on February 3rd, 1930, under Nguyen Ai Quoc’s chairmanship (Uncle Ho), a resolution on the press was passed. Since the founding of the CPV, the press has played a crucial role in the fight for national liberation, independence, and freedom.

Under the direction of the Party, the Vietnamese revolutionary press continued to highlight its significance as a "corps" in the conflicts against the French Colonialists and the US Imperialists, fostering and igniting national pride and the will to win the conflict.
