Method of communication to ethnic minority regions in Vietnam today

Journalism-Communication studies Tuesday, 18:56 18-05-2021

Vietnam is a multi-ethnic country with Kinh (Viet) as the majority group and 53 ethnic minority groups, who are living across the country, mostly in mountainous, remote, rural and border regions with rough topography and difficult transportation. The backward social and economic condition, language barrier, psychological reservedness and low literacy have made communication in ethnic minority regions difficult. Therefore, it is important to employ different methods of communication to people of ethnic minorities be it direct or indirect in order to help them access and understand the directions, policies of the Party and State, accelerate their production and consolidate the national solidarity.
