The information was revealed by Marie-Christine Saragosse, Chairwoman and CEO of the channel Marc Saikali and France 24 director Marc Saikali at a press conference held in Hanoi on May 23.
According to Marie-Christine Saragosse, a special programme introducing Vietnam was produced to mark the event, with the focuses of “Vietnam becomes a major player in Asian football”, “E-commerce boom in Vietnam”, and “Rehahn Croquevielle, Vietnam through the lens” which features photos of 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam.
