PAN conferred with Labour Hero title

QĐND – Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 22:15 (GMT+7)

PANO – The People’s Army Newspaper organised a solemn ceremony today to receive the title “Labour Hero” on the occasion of celebrating its 60th anniversary of the first publication.

The Chairman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Phu Trong, and General Phung Quang Thanh, Minister of National Defence, attended the ceremony.

The PAN was founded on 20th October 1950 in Thai Nguyen Province as the merger of two other newspapers.

The name of the newspaper was given by President Ho Chi Minh.

During the war against French colonialism, the newspaper published in both Dien Bien Phu and Hanoi.

The Vietnam War saw the maturity of the newspaper as its reporters were sent to the front and gathered updated information about the war.

“The newspaper’s staff  have tried their best to serve the information demands in wars and peace time,” said Major General Le Phuc Nguyen, PAN’s Editor-in-Chief, at the ceremony.

Having conferred the title to the newspaper at the ceremony, NA Chairman, Nguyen Phu Trong, said that the newspaper showed its strengths right from its establishment.

“The newspaper is truly a hero in both wartime and peacetime,” said the Chairman.

The Chairman also hoped that the PAN would promote its strengths to be a leading newspaper in Vietnam.

During its operation, the PAN has been presented with the Ho Chi Minh Medal, the Gold Star Medal and the title of Hero of the Armed Forces.
