Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnam Television (VTV) Director General Tran Binh Minh underscored that the exhibition will create a venue for both domestic and foreign television stations to seek business opportunities and share experience in television technology.

Local television managers and producers also have the chance to popularise their products and learn on-the-spot about film making processes and production in the most professional manner, Tuan noted.

More than 200 companies, and TV stations from 15 countries and territories including the US, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, India, Turkey and China are displaying their television-related items at 350 booths.
