Speaking at the event, Deputy PM Dam appreciated the achievements made by the VCA in general and those who are working in the cinematic sector in general.

He noted that over the nearly 70 years of formation and development, Vietnamese cinema has made significant contributions to the cause of national construction and defence as well as the development of the country’s socio-culture.

The many generations of artists have made great efforts to overcome all difficulties and devote themselves to the development of the country’s cinema, added the Deputy PM.

He also asked the VCA to overcome limitations and shortcomings to create high-quality works for the cinematic sector.

At the congress, the VCA’s Executive Committee was elected with 15 members. People’s Artist Dang Xuan Hai, President of the VCA for the eighth tenure, continues to assume the role of its President until the new Executive Committee elects a successor.
