A 160-metre broadcast tower was inaugurated in northern Nam Dinh province on June 15.

Beginning in July 2014 and worth 21.6 billion VND (995,392 USD), the construction features 32 force-resistant cement stakes and a body made of more than 245 tonnes of steel to bear heavy loads and cope with storms, as it was built where a tower collapsed during a 2012 storm.

The newly inaugurated tower caters to over 8 million television viewers across the southern part of the Red River Delta and the northern part of Thanh Hoa.

Tran Dung Trinh, Deputy Head of the Vietnam Television, said the operations contribute to completing the digitisation of television in the Red River Delta region 18 months ahead of schedule.-VNA
