The event is being held by the HCMC Journalists Association, the HCMC Department of Culture and Sports and the Vietnam Press Museum to mark the 132nd birthday of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890 – May 19, 2022), the 100th anniversary of Le Paria (April 1, 1922 – April 1, 2022), the 97th anniversary of Vietnam Journalism Day (June 21, 1925 – June 21, 2022).
