Nguyen Manh Cuong, secretary of the chapter, handed over the decision to Mr. Phong the same day at the daily’s headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City.

Mr. Cuong congratulated Mr. Phong on his new position, and wished a new chapter would begin at Tuoi Tre.

The newly appointed Editor-in-Chief expressed his thanks to the Ho Chi Minh City chapter of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union for entrusting him with the task.

Mr. Phong, 43, expressed his hope that the Tuoi Tre staff and him will be able to make valuable contributions to the development of the newspaper and society, something many generations of the daily have been doing for the last four decades.

He had been the acting Editor-in-Chief of Tuoi Tre since December 2014, when his predecessor, Mr. Pham Duc Hai, was appointed vice chief of the Commission for Propaganda and Education of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee.

Mr. Hai was seconded from the commission to take the wheel at Tuoi Tre for more than one term before he was asked to return late last year.

Tuoi Tre is slated to celebrate its 40th anniversary this September.
