Under which, six magazines and three newspapers will cease to exist and one newspaper will be merged to another, according to a decision by the Hanoi People’s Committee.
After the reshuffle, there will be eight media outlets which are Hanoimoi, Kinh te & Do thi (Economic & Urban), Phu nu Thu do (Capital Women), Lao dong Thu do (Capital Labor), and Tuoi tre Thu do (Capital Youth); two magazines namely Science (managed by Capital University) and Van hoc & Nghe thuat Ha Noi (Hanoi Literature & Arts); and Hanoi Radio and Television.
In a second phase, those media outlets need to stabilize their operations after the reshuffle. The stabilization will take place from January 2021 throughout 2025.
Of them, printed newspapers and magazines will work under the form of one media outlet consisting of different publications. E-newspapers and e-magazines need to update technology to ensure good operations with missions of guiding the public and promoting external information services.

The PM-approved planning lays stress on downsizing the scope of the press by cutting the number of printed newspapers and magazines, general news portals, radio and television stations.
