Vietnam radio to offer 24/7 English channel

Thursday, February 26, 2015, 13:13 GMT+7

Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV), the national radio station, is poised to launch a full-time English channel in the third quarter of this year.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has approved VOV's proposal to launch an all-day English channel, which is to be made within this year’s third quarter.

VOV5, the radio station’s overseas channel, currently airs 12 programs at certain times in different languages, including English, French, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, German, Thai, Indonesian, and Khmer dialect.

The dialect is used by the Khmer ethnic minority, who typically inhabit such Vietnamese Mekong Delta provinces as Tra Vinh, Soc Trang, and An Giang.

The programs serve as a gateway to the latest news in Vietnam for expats and overseas Vietnamese across the world.

They also help promote the country’s rich culture to the world and provide tastes of home culture to overseas Vietnamese.
