Editor-in-chief Tran The Tuyen warmly received the journalists from Russia, a close friend of Viet Nam and Ho Chi Minh City.
Mr. Tuyen said SGGP had often sent correspondents to Russia to write about the country and people, and had organized conferences to promote bilateral trade and friendship.
He also briefed the delegation on the newspaper’s development and plans.
The head of the visiting delegation, Alexey Sunnerberg of the Voice of Russia radio station, said the visit would provide the Russian press plenty of opportunities to exchange information and cooperate with SGGP.
There would, henceforth, be more news about HCMC in Russian newspapers and about Russia in SGGP, he added.
Mr. Sunnerberg added that the visitors would report about Viet Nam’s socio-economic achievements in 20 years of renovation, and establish ties with major Vietnamese media agencies, including SGGP.
Among the other Russian agencies represented on the delegation were Itar-Tass agency and Komsomolskaya Pravda (Truth for Youth), and Novye Izvestiya (New News) newspapers.
