Speaking at the ceremony, Hai Phong newspaper Editor-in-Chief Le Trong Nghia said opening the southern office aimed at buidling a new relationship between the two cities and putting his newspaper to a new height.

He said about 100,000 people of Hai Phong origin are currently living and working in HCM City. Therefore, the southern office will act as a bridge for them to know more about their hometown.

The office is located at 18Bis/27A Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, District 1.
