China Radio International to broadcast more Tamil programmes in Asia

Tamil programmes broadcast by China Radio International (CRI) are becoming increasingly popular among Tamils around the world, a spokesperson of CRI said.

On a visit to the All India Radio’s local station, Kalaimagal, who heads China Radio’s Tamil wing, said the division that started in 1963 has been catering to listeners in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and several other countries.

The website of the Tamil division, launched in 1997, was also becoming more popular. Kalaimagal is planning to add more programmes for its growing audience. Fifteen persons of Chinese origin and three Tamils are working in the Tamil section of CRI.
