Cairo (VNA) – General Director of the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) Nguyen The Ky has proposed that the agency and the Egypt National Radio finalise procedures for the signing of a bilateral agreement in broadcasting.

The deal will enable the two sides to exchange radio programmes, thus introducing the culture, nation and people of Vietnam and Egypt to each country’s audiences and deepening the mutual understanding of both peoples.

During their meeting in Cairo on December 4, the VOV leader and chairwoman of the Egypt National Radio Nadia Mabrouk agreed to send reporters to each other for joint production of radio programmes on their cultures and countries.

Ky suggested that the two sides should sign the agreement as soon as possible, while proposing holding a seminar in Hanoi on the occasion to share experience in broadcasting activities and discuss challenges facing the sector in the context of information boom.

He introduced the development of the VOV during the past 70 years, highly valuing the cooperation with the Egypt National Radio as having boosted bilateral ties between the two countries in politics, economy, trade, culture and tourism.

For her part, Nadia Mabrouk agreed with proposals of her Vietnamese counterpart, adding that the cooperation agreement between the two sides is feasible and practical.

She pledged to direct units of the Egypt National Radio to directly contact with those from the VOV to quicken the process of finalising required procedures for the signing of the deal in the coming time.

The two sides also agreed that Vietnam and Egypt are sharing untapped potential of affiliation in various fields, especially economy, culture and tourism, adding that the cooperation between the two radio stations will contribute to strengthening bilateral partnership between the two countries.-VNA
