PM hands over appointment decision to VNA General Director

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on September 14 handed over a decision appointing Vu Viet Trang as General Director of the Vietnam News Agency.


PM Pham Minh Chinh congratulated Vu Viet Trang on her appointment, saying she is the first female leader of the State-run news agency.

Trang was appointed Deputy General Director of the Vietnam News Agency by the Prime Minister in 2017.

During her career, she has been awarded the Prime Minister’s Certificates of Merit several times, for contributions to the coverage of the APEC Leaders’ Meeting and related meetings in 2006 and the communication drive on the 12th National Party Congress in 2016, for outstanding work performance in 2018, and for her role in the communication drive on the Vietnam ASEAN Year 2020./.
