|Happy New Year 2020 - Year of the Rat
"Dear colleagues, friends and readers, 2019 has been considered a busy but successful year of the Public Security Forces in general and the Public Security Newspaper in particular. Despite difficulties and challenges, leaders, reporters and workers of the Public Security Newspaper still stood united and excellently fulfilled all tasks assigned by the Central Party Committee of Public Security, leaders of the Ministry of Public Security.
During the year, we, the staff of the newspaper, faithfully reflected all major happenings and events at home and overseas as well as in the newspaper’s editions.
All editions of the newspaper actively and effectively popularized the Party's guidelines, the State's policies and laws, directions of the Ministry of Public Security on ensuring security and order, and promoted the building of emulation movements, contributing to raising the position of the Public Security Forces, and connecting the Public Security Forces and other branches, agencies, organizations and the people.
What is more, the newspaper frequently covered every aspect of the domestic situation around the year, including information about national- and sector- level events, issues related to national security, social order and safety, socio-economic development, culture and sports, life and work of all people, sectors and branches across the country.
Regarding international issues and foreign affairs, reporters of the newspaper successfully followed and reported on major developments of the regional and international situations and updated readers on information about latest happenings in the region and world on time and in an objective manner. We also provided readers with foreign activities of leaders of the Party, State, National Assembly, Government and Public Security Forces, including visits of Vietnamese leaders to other countries as well as visits of leaders of other countries to Vietnam.

Particularly, the newspaper, as the voice of the People’s Public Security Forces and people, always reflected directions from leadership of the Ministry of Public Security, activities of the Public Security Forces and major criminal cases.
The newspaper, as one of the several news outlets of the country, had a number of interesting features, analyses and commentaries on the Second US-Korea Summit in Hanoi in February 2019, as well as reflected the good preparation work of Vietnam as a host country in general and the work of ensuring the security and safety of the People Public Security Forces for the event.
Following the development trend of the press and media in the world, the Public Security Newspaper focused on improving the quality and effectiveness of its online editions in Vietnamese and foreign languages last year, in the hope that we would serve more readers at home and overseas.
With its great effort, the Public Security Newspaper now runs three online editions in Vietnamese, English and Chinese, meeting an increasing demand of domestic and international readers for information.
On the occasion of the Lunar New Year, on behalf of the staff of the newspaper, I highly appreciate the supports and constructive opinions and ideas on our Online Chinese and English Editions. We are really grateful to you all for that.
In 2019, the newspaper also organized other activities, including online talks on hot topic of public concern, an art program named "Echo of the victory" in celebration of the founding anniversary of the Public Security Force. The newspaper also mobilized some VND 16 billion from donors to support people in need nationwide.
On the occasion of the Vietnamese Traditional Lunar New Year – the Year of the Rat, we, all staff members of the Public Security Newspaper, would like to extend best wishes to our colleagues, friends and readers, and hope that you will continue to support and be interested in the Public Security Newspaper in general and our Online English Edition in particular.
2020 is a very important year for the country. This year marks the 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the 130th birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh, the 75th national founding anniversary and the 45th anniversary of the South liberation and national reunification.
In 2020, Party congresses at all levels, particularly the 13th National Party Congress, will be organized. At the same time, Vietnam serves as the Chair of ASEAN and a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the term 2020-2021. So the country will host or/and participate in a large number of international events will be held in the country.
We, the newspaper of the People's Public Security Forces, will do our best to accomplish our political duties, and provide our readers with the news coverage of all major happenings and events in the country and around the world, followng the motto: "Humanity - Reliability - Timeliness".
Thank you very much!"
