Hanoi currently has 14 press agencies with 25 publications, 7 magazines; 9 press agencies have developed their online version. The broadcasting system features two channels H1 and H2, including 65 programs on cable TV systems and 23 digital programs via satellite. Online TV programs were developed in 2002 and online radio in 2005 to better serve the requirements of overseas audiences. Two programs that serve foreign communication are Hanoi Foreign News and Cooperation and Friendship News run in both English and Vietnamese. Besides, there are hundreds of central press agencies, representative offices of domestic and foreign press agencies, central diplomatic organs, and foreign organizations... As far as these characteristics are concerned foreign communication of Hanoi is considered extremely important, requiring quick, accurate and timely information; rich and modern structures; deep and efficient contents; and thus highly skilled reporters, etc.
