Vietnam and Cambodia boost broadcast cooperation

Vietnam and Cambodia will continue to increase bilateral cooperation in broadcasting. At a meeting on 9 April, General Director of the VOV Vu Van Hien agreed to provide music and song broadcasts in Vietnamese to the Radio Voice of Cambodia, as requested by the Cambodian Minister of Information Khieu Canharith. Hien also presided at the inauguration of an FM broadcasting station in Xvai Rieng Province, which had installed broadcasting equipment donated by the VOV.
Minister Khieu expressed thanks for VOV’s technical assistance as well as its support in training Cambodian broadcast technicians over the past few years.
On the behalf of the Cambodian Government, Minister Khieu offered an “Honourary Medal” to General Director Hien and VOV’s staff, who helped install Vietnam-donated FM transmitters, in recognition of their contribution to broadcasting in Cambodia.
