This paper adopts the culture definition of Ho Chi Minh, a great leader of Viet Nam people, in exploring the connection between types of powers in the political arena.

Therefore, there are some qualitative clues that trigger us to explore the press in its traditional formats and in a more modern context of social media, proving its close relation in promoting the cultural identities of the country, which is also a component of soft power.
