When Viet Nam News first hit the news-stands in 1991, it was a modest four-page newspaper whose stories were written, edited and proofed by hand.
Since then, Viet Nam's major English language daily, published seven days a week, has kept pace with the rapid strides taken by the country in its economic renovation and its integration with the regional and world economies.
We have upped our size from 28 to 32 pages a day, providing comprehensive coverage of the latest domestic and international developments in all areas including politics, economics, business, social affairs and sport. Special pages carry comment, analysis, and reports on the environment, science and technology, lifestyle and key social issues.
Our Talk Around Town column presents the thoughts and views of a wide cross-section of Vietnamese people on their society. Business Beat offers incisive comments on commercial matters.
Entrepreneurs swear by our business section, with special features including updates on all the latest laws, interviews with local movers and shakers and a hotline where we answer your toughest questions.
Sunday Viet Nam News acquaints readers with the many captivating aspects of Vietnamese culture and society, and profiles its many beautiful tourist destinations. Travelling even further from our humble beginnings, a team of knowledgeable, dedicated and committed workers have launched the newspaper into cyberspace.
The launch of our new publication, the national English-language monthly Outlook, coincided with the consolidation and deepening of the doi moi (renewal) process.
Outlook provides our readers with a broad but focused view of Viet Nam’s transition and integration into the world’s economy together with comprehensive reporting and analysis of the relevant issues through the best in English language journalism.
Outlook, our new 68-page full-colour, A4 sized publication on high-quality glossy paper went on sale in early January, 2004.
