The Evolving Role of the Press in Contemporary Vietnam
The aim of this article is to examine the new developments of the mass media in Vietnam in the first decade of the 21st century
and how they should be responded by the Vietnamese government. Over two decades of rapid economic growth has brought
about a different face to the Vietnamese economy, presenting a new socio-political environment for the operation of the press.
How the Vietnamese Communist Party (VCP) and the Vietnamese Government respond to the emerging role of the press will
not only define the future of the Vietnamese journalism but also reveal the future projection of the VCP.
