Hanoi (VNA) – Cambodia’s Ministry of Information held a ceremony in Phnom Penh on October 27 to receive six radio transmitters granted by the Vietnamese Government to local radio and television stations.

At the handover ceremony, Cambodian Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith thanked the Vietnamese Government for assisting the country’s media sector, particularly in providing experts and equipment.

In 2015, also through Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV), the Vietnamese Government donated 15 radio transmitters to Cambodia to help local authorities spread the Cambodian Government’s policies and laws among residents.

This year, Vietnam is assisting Cambodia in installing equipment for four radio and two television stations in six provinces. VOV technicians are working to complete the project before the end of the year.

The assistance is part of an agreement of the Vietnam-Cambodia Joint Committee for economic, cultural, and scientific and technological cooperation.-VNA
