Vietnam Television (VTV) officially opened another representative office in Los Angeles, California at a ceremony on April 23.
Addressing the event, VTV General Director Tran Binh Minh said the new office is expected to enhance the coverage of socio-economic and cultural situation in the US western coast as well as in the overseas Vietnamese community in California, and thus contribute to stronger bilateral cooperation between the two nations.
Vietnamese General Consul in San Francisco Ho Xuan Son noted the significance of the establishment of the office, saying that it will serve as a bridge connecting Vietnam with the socio-economic and cultural hub of Los Angeles, as well as the whole West Coast of the US.
The overseas Vietnamese community in California with nearly 700,000 people account for more than 30 percent of the total number of OVs in the US, Son said, adding that the VTV office will help with the preservation of the Vietnamese language, identity and tradition for the community.
This is VTV’s 11th overseas press office and now its third bureau in the US. The other two are located in Washington D.C and New York City.-VNA
