According to Associate Professor, Doctor Nguyen The Ky, member of the Party Central Committee and President of the Voice of Vietnam, the seminar was regarded as the 3rd national conference on preserving the nature of the Vietnamese language. Previous two seminars were held in 1966 and 1979. VOV President Nguyen The Ky said: “The seminar aims to engage the government, the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education, the Ministry of Information and Communications, the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, the Vietnam Journalists' Association, and the Vietnam Linguistics' Association in the management and consultation on the use of the Vietnamese language on mass media. They should fine-tune law and policies on the use of Vietnamese towards building a Code of Vietnamese language”.

At the seminar, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam urged journalists to maintain the nature and at the same time enrich the Vietnamese language. Perceiving foreign languages or achievements of mankind to enrich Vietnamese is inevitable in the global integration but the perception should be selective to preserve the identity of the Vietnamese language. Dam said: “Each journalist should self-train their use of the Vietnamese language because their reports are influential to the public and can be shared widely on social network. I hope to receive suggestions from this seminar to better preserve the nature of the Vietnamese language.”

240 presentations on the use of the Vietnamese language on radio, TV, and print were discussed at the seminar.
