Channel NewsAsia Opens Vietnam News Bureau in Hanoi

APAC Regional broadcaster Channel NewsAsia has launched a Vietnam news bureau. The office, located in Hanoi, is the channel’s 14th dedicated bureau in Southeast and East Asia.

The event in Hanoi was attended by government officials, business leaders and partners. Channel NewsAsia’s Correspondent based in Hanoi, Tan Qiuyi, who has been based there since late last year, will file first-hand reports on the developments in a country that has one of the fastest growing economies in the region. 

Some of her more recent reports include the opening up of the real estate market and Vietnam’s athletes who scored gold and glory at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games. 

The opening of the bureau was announced by Ms Debra Soon, Head of MediaCorp’s News and Premier Segment, last year at Channel NewsAsia’s Vietnam Business Insights forum. 

Ms Soon said, “With our bureau in place here in Hanoi, we are extending our capability to report with depth and integrity. This is what the channel stands for, to create better understanding of Asia and what it has to offer the world.”

The bureau’s establishment comes at a time when the region is set to be further integrated, with the impending establishment of the ASEAN Community by the end of the year. The ASEAN Community will present tremendous opportunities for businesses, people-to-people exchange and closer regional economic integration.
