Denmark helps upgrade local TV broadcasting in Vietnam

Nguyen Van Lang, chairman of the Dak Lak People’s Committee, had a working session with Darran Riber, a representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, to discuss a project on upgrading Dak Lak Television Broadcasting Station on September 7, 2004.
     Lang introduced his Danish guest about socio-economic situation in Dak Lak province after renovation years and the local people’s demand for information. He affirmed that Dak Lak was one of the localities which had the greatest projects developed under the sponsorship of DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency) and they initially produced great effectiveness. These include a project on safe water and environmental hygiene and a project on agricultural and rural development (first phase).
     Recently, the governments of Vietnam and Denmark signed an agreement on the administrative reform project (second phase) in Dak Lak with an investment capital of US$3 million. This is an opportunity for a sustainable development in Dak Lak and the Central Highlands.
     If a project on the building of a cable television centre is implemented in Dak Lak, apart from investment in helping local human resources improve their skills to get access to new, modern technology, the province will create the most favourable conditions for the Danish Government to carry out its project.
     Darrann Riber said that after examining and studying the demand and management capability of the local television, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark would submit to the country’s government a US$5 million project on building a cable television centre in Dak Lak.
