Vietnamese Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung and Indian Minister of Information and Broadcasting Anurag Singh Thakur inked a letter of intent on cooperation in digital communication and electronic information management between the two countries during their working session in New Delhi on December 16.

The signing of the letter of intent took place within the framework of Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Vuong Dinh Hue’s official visit to India.

During the session, the two sides shared their respective country's policies and regulations on digital communications as well as experience in handling violations, and solutions to healthily promote cyberspace development.

To further bolster the Vietnam-India comprehensive strategic partnership, the ministers agreed to step up communication work and support for press agencies to increase coverage on each other’s development, thereby improving mutual understanding.

The two countries are set to arrange a myriad of activities, including the exchange of delegations of reporters to commemorate the 50th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties next year.

Workshops sharing experience in digital transformation in journalism and broadcasting, social network management and fighting fake news will also be organised./.
