Ambitious program boosts Japan’s Asian business profile

TOKYO, (PNA/VNS) — Media partners of a program entitled ‘Catch Asia! Media Network’, co-founded by the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and Japanese Fuji Television nearly two years ago, gathered at a recent meeting in Tokyo, Japan.

Attending the event last Friday were six leading media agencies and newspapers in Asia, namely ANI from India, TV3 from Thailand, Vietnamplus under the VNA, the Jakarta Post and MetroTV from Indonesia, and RTM from Malaysia, along with hundreds of Japanese businesses.

The meeting focused on tightening information connections between Japanese businesses and Asia.

Broadcasters including Metro-TV, RTM and TV3 have also coordinated with FujiTV to set up new programs on Japanese technology and businesses, helping popularise the country’s image in Asia.

At the meeting, Yoji Itagaki, Executive Director of Technology Research and Development Department of FujiTV, spoke highly of Catch Asia’s achievements and voiced his hope that more Japanese firms would join in the program in the future.
