HA NOI (VNS) — Within three years, Viet Nam will be broadcasting top news programmes to the world by television and radio. This is part of a recently approved plan to expand the country's coverage.
The plan states that by 2015, Viet Nam's satellite signals will reach all countries and territories in North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific and Oceania.
Efforts will also be made to improve the content of existing foreign-affairs channels, including VTV4 (after 2015 be known as VTV World), and the Vietnam News Agency (Vnews) television channel.
The national plan suggests content produced for a global audience would be a faster reflection of the Government's and the Party's policies and the country's potential in attracting foreign investment and boosting tourism.
Focus will be on providing in-depth reports reflecting Viet Nam's foreign-affairs policies and its position regarding regional and world affairs.
Viet Nam has several channels targeting global audiences and overseas Vietnamese, most notably VOV World and VOV5 (radio), VTC10 (cable channel), VTV4 and Vnews (television). — VNS
