Chinese firm, Cambodian Interior Ministry signs deal to establish TV channel


Wednesday, 29 July 2015

PHNOM PENH, July 29 (Xinhua) -- China Fujian Zhongya Culture Media Company and the Cambodian Interior Ministry on Wednesday signed a cooperation agreement to build a television station in Cambodia.

The deal was inked here between Huang Yichuan, representative of China Fujian Zhongya Culture Media Company, and Gen. Mao Bunarith, director general of the ministry's general department of logistics and finance, under the presence of Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sar Kheng.

"The Interior TV station is estimated to cost 30 million U.S. dollars," Sar Kheng told reporters after the signing ceremony, adding that it would be located in the western outskirts of Phnom Penh.

The Interior TV channel will launch its broadcasting operation next year, he said, declining to give the details of the percentage of shares each side holds.

Gen. Mao Bunarith said this new channel will begin broadcasting on trial in early 2016 and officially launch in mid-2016.

"It will be an international standard TV channel that uses satellite technology," he said.

He said the Interior TV channel will focus on news, education, entertainment, general knowledge, arts, and economy.

Huang said the would-be TV channel will contribute to the development of the media sector in Cambodia.

"We will bring reliable and fast news on politics and economy to the Cambodian audience," he said.  

Currently, there are some 17 local television channels in this Southeast Asian nation.
