VTV-Vietnam and EBS-Korea boost TV co-operation
The two public broadcasters in Vietnam and Korea are presently finalising a memorandum of understanding to build on their cooperation in the television sector.
The Republic of Korea’s Educational Broadcasting System (EBS) helped Vietnam Television (VTV) to develop VTV7, a new national education channel which was officially launched recently, reports The Voice of Vietnam.
As well as VTV7, Vietnam and Korea have previously worked together to acquire copyrights for certain shows and co-produced TV programmes, such as VTV’s drama Tuoi Thanh Xuan (Forever Young).
Through the extended co-operation pact, it is said that the two countries would be able to share TV shows and co-produce them to export to other countries.
