Swedish Fojo Strengthens the Vietnamese Press

The Vietnamese press has grown quickly and its face has remarkably changed and contributed to the country’s development, said experts from Sweden’s Institute for Further Education of Journalists (Fojo) at a workshop held by Fojo and Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications. At the workshop, Fojo experts also said that the gap between Vietnamese and Swedish press had narrowed.
The three-day workshop was organized to strengthen the skills of Vietnamese journalists. 
The head of the Press Department, Hoang Huu Luong, said that the program of cooperation in training provided by Fojo had played an important role in the country’s development of its modern press.
“Fojo training courses have equipped thousands of Vietnamese journalists with various content, from organizing an editorial office, media management, ways to get and write news articles, photography and layouts to earn money for newspaper,” Mr Luong said. 
“Fojo has also given important forecasts on the world press, helping the Vietnamese press have useful reference channels and plan adequate development models,” he added.

Fojo has been providing mid-career training for Vietnamese journalists since 1998.
