Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper organized on Tuesday the groundbreaking of the Tuoi Tre Complex in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City, which is going to be the new home of its headquarters, press and media services, and office for lease.

The ceremony took place on the occasion of the 47th birthday of the newspaper (September 2, 1975).

The event saw the attendance of Tran Trong Dung, vice-president of the Vietnam Journalists Association, director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Information and Communications Lam Dinh Thang, secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union Phan Thi Thanh Phuong, chairman of the Go Vap District People's Committee Nguyen Tri Dung, along with generations of editors-in-chief and staff members of Tuoi Tre.

The Tuoi Tre Complex will create the space for modern journalism, boost revenue, and develop a solid journalism economy so that Tuoi Tre can further develop with its own resources, Tuoi Tre Editor-in-Chief Le The Chu said at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Over the past 47 years, Tuoi Tre has not only provided readers with information but also initiated and organized many meaningful activities and events, said secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union Phuong.
