Lao National Television ( LNTV ) on November 29 held a ceremony to mark its 30th founding anniversary, which falls on December 1.

Speaking at the ceremony, LNTV Director General Bounchom Vongphet reviewed the TV station’s development.

Thanks to the attention of the Lao Party and State plus support from other countries, LNTV has seen great achievements in bettering the quality and length of its television output. Some channels now come on air for the whole day instead of three hours per day as before.

On this occasion, many LNTV units and individuals were awarded with medals and Friendship Orders by the Lao and Vietnamese States.

At the event, Vietnam Television (VTV) granted 100,000 USD to the Lao broadcaster to help improve its equipment and capacity.-VNA
