- VOV delegation visits DW and Reuters
- VOV successfully hosts 2013 RadioAsia Conference
- VOV to introduce folk culture in broadcasting
A document to this effect was signed in Havana on September 9 (local time) between ICRT and VOV representatives.
Addressing the signing ceremony, VOV Director General Nguyen Dang Tien emphasised the venerable history of Cuban and Vietnamese solidarity.
The Vietnamese people treasure the assistance offered by their Cuban compatriots in their past resistance war for national independence and unification, he said.
Tien recalled ICRT allowed the VOV to use its external broadcasting channel during the fight against American aggressors, reaching an American domestic audience. These programmes were instrumental in revealing the truth of their government’s war to the American people.
Cuban colleagues also helped VOV produce six daily programmes at the height of the conflict.
For his part, ICRT Vice President Guillermo Pavón reiterated his country’s commitment to broadcasting cooperation with VOV, and expressed his belief that the agreement will help deepen mutual understanding between the two peoples.
The VOV delegation, led by its Director General Nguyen Dang Tien, is attending Cuba’s Radio and Television Broadcasting Festival in Cuba over September 9-13.
VOV representatives used their pavilion to introduce Vietnam’s contemporary broadcasting industry.
The delegation also visited the Vietnamese Embassy in Cuba. Ambassador Vu Chi Cong presented VOV representatives with a recorded tape of VOV’s first programme broadcast during the past war and archived with the help of the ICRT.
