Some background to the new high power medium wave station of the Voice of Vietnam:
Mr. Vu Hai Quang, VOV’s Vice President, said the project has a duo goal of assuring socio-economic development and national defence. “Millions of fishermen and marine forces will benefit from VOV programs on various topics including socio-economic, political, and cultural affairs. The broadcast will provide a mainstream information channel for fishermen, helping to improve their awareness of protecting Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty. It also contributes to exercising Vietnam’s maritime sovereignty.”
VOV programs broadcast from the new station are available on the frequency of 1071 kHz.
