The publication in question is Thanh Nien News in English (thanhniennews.com), who published their last English language content on Sep. 15. Here’s what they said online.
“In 2004 we launched thanhniennews.com to bring all the latest information about Vietnam to English-speaking readers in the country and abroad.
Twelve years later, with a heavy heart, we announce the closure of the website owing to our company's major reorganization plans… All the articles we have published can still be found in the Archive.
Thanks to you, dear reader, Thanh Nien News was among the most popular English-language news websites in Vietnam.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your time and attention over the past 12 years, which contributed to the website’s great success.”
Word thanks you, too, Thanh Nien News. Let’s just hope this isn’t a trend.
