Addressing the conference, Minister of Information and Communications Truong Minh Tuan raised four issues that the publishing industry had to face and resolve to take further steps as well as to further improve the quality of publishing activities. It is essential that the managing agency pay more attention to investing in upgrading facilities of the publishing house, developing a strategy for training human resources for the whole sector, branding publishers and fulfilling the roles and responsibilities of the managing agency in publishing activities.

In the coming time, managing agencies, agencies, branches and localities should pay more attention to and invest more in publishing activities. The Ministry of Information and Communications, the Departments of Information and Communications across the country should coordinate more closely and jointly help the Publishing sector develop in a positive, wholesome way, obtaining a higher position in the cultural and social life.
