The newspaper, whose development is closely linked with the development of the national revolution, the Vietnam People’s Army, and the country’s revolutionary press, is one of the press agencies taking the lead in digital transformation. The newspaper is being transformed into a multimedia press agency.

From a newspaper circulated in the armed forces only, the People’s Army Newspaper is now widely distributed in the society. Along with daily, weekly, and monthly publications, the newspaper has an online edition with five language versions, namely Vietnamese, English, Chinese, Lao, and Khmer. In addition, the newspaper is also widely known on social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Tiktok, Zalo, and Lotus.

She spoke highly of the visit to the PAN, saying that it was significant for public relations students. She added that through the visit, the students gained practical knowledge of the production of the PAN’s publications.

Over the past years, the People’s Army Newspaper has actively coordinated with academies and schools to exchange expertise, and improve students’ knowledge of press and media. Such activities have helped students learn more about the newspaper named by Uncle Ho, the voice of the armed forces and people of Vietnam.
