The Press Centre for the Hue Festival 2012 was inaugurated at the Thua Thien-Hue provincial Journalists Association on April 2 to assist both domestic and foreign reporters during the biennial event.
The centre is equipped with computers and high-speed internet connections, printers, photocopiers, as well as incorporated programs for photo, audio and video editing, that will be available free of charge to reporters covering the event.
Over 500 journalists have already registered to work at the festival, which will take place from April 7-15 this year.
The festival organizers also held a training course for more than 60 students from colleges in the city who have volunteered to support communications and logistics throughout the festival.
The liaison officers, who were chosen for their good command of foreign language and interpersonal skills, as well as a solid knowledge of Vietnamese culture and history, will accompany and work with international diplomatic corps and art troupes participating in the festival.
