A 20-kilowatt FM radio station funded by the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) under a cooperation agreement between the Vietnamese and Cambodian governments was inaugurated in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on August 13.

Addressing the ceremony, VOV General Director Nguyen Dang Tien highlighted the friendship between the two countries and between the VOV and the National Radio of Cambodia in particular.

He noted that under the agreement, the VOV has helped construct 12 radio stations with capacities from two to 20 kilowatts across Cambodia, and that the Vietnamese station is set to hand over three other radio stations in the near future.

Tien also expressed his hope that the Vietnamese-funded radio stations would contribute to developing a prosperous and wealthy Cambodia.

Cambodian Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith thanked the Vietnamese Government and people for funding the construction of radio stations across his country, helping Cambodia expand its radio coverage to all corners of the country, especially in rural areas.

The minister also hoped the VOV would continue to support the Cambodian Ministry of Information and the National Station of Cambodia in infrastructure construction and information technology transfer.

On the occasion, the minister presented the Saha Metrey order to some VOV officials for their contributions to developing Cambodia.

During the working visit from August 12 to 16, the VOV General Director is scheduled to pay a courtesy visit to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and have working sessions with the National Television of Cambodia and the National Radio of Cambodia.-VNA
