Vietnam Television opens news bureau in Singapore

Vietnam Television (VTV) has opened a news bureau in Singapore, bringing its worldwide total to eight, and it has also signed a cooperation agreement with Singapore’s MediaCorp.

Both sides will promote the exchange of news and television programmes and provide technical support to each other’s correspondents.

They will also co-produce television shows and documentaries, as well as share expertise and management experiences through working visits.

VTV President Tran Binh Minh said “The cooperation agreement between VTV and MediaCorp will bring about more information, and fresh updates, for our audience.

“We hope that after signing this agreement, we will actively exchange views and experiences.”

Debra Soon, managing director of Channel NewsAsia (CAN) at MediaCorp, added “it is interesting and very heartening to note that more Asian broadcasters are getting together to tell original stories of Asia, which is what we feel is necessary.

“Cooperation with VTV will allow us to have another reference point for viewers in Asia, and to report events as they happen in Asia, from Asia, from people who understand Asia best.” she said.
