It is part of a US$2 million communications cooperation agreement for 2017 and 2018 between Ha Noi authorities and the American cable and satellite television channel, available in more than 210 countries and territories.
Three clips to be screen in 2018 are “Ha Noi – Heart of Viet Nam”, “Ha Noi – Cradle of Heritage” and “Ha Noi – History, culture and people”.
The first two were produced and broadcast on the channel in 2017, while the rest was produced in 2018, featuring the city’s thousand-year-old history, relic sites and bustling streets.
The clips will be aired on the channel in three periods, from March 5 to May 6, from June 4 to August 5 and from October 15 to December 23 in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, the Middle East, North America and South Asia.
In 2018, CNN will make a fourth film on Hanoi as a tourism destination, expected to be screened in June.
