The launching of VOV radio-broadcasting services to the entire Vietnamese territorial waters is an important move, helping fishermen and soldiers working offshore get easier access to accurate, timely and round-the-clock information about political, economic, social and cultural affairs both in and outside Vietnam, especially forecasts about natural disasters as well as the research and rescue work at sea.
Speaking at the ceremony, PM Dung urged the VOV to make full advantage of infrastructure, equipment and staff to improve the quality of broadcasts on the East Sea.
The project will effectively serve the dissemination of information, natural calamity prevention and control, as well as rescue efforts, thereby reducing losses in humans and property of offshore fishermen, the PM said.
He asked the VOV to work closely with relevant ministries and agencies to receive and transmit timely and accurate information about fishing grounds, weather, and rescue work.
The government leader asked the radio to quickly carry out the second phase of the project to provide high-quality news updates for Quang Ninh, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Kien Giang and central coastal provinces, especially at night.
