VOInews, Jakarta: Indonesian public radio network, Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) agreed to collaborate on broadcast and information programming. President Director of the RRI, I. Hendrasmo, said the collaboration aimed to provide broadcasts and information for Indonesian citizens in Hong Kong, China. Currently, the number of Indonesian citizens living in the territory has reached 50,000 people.

"So that Indonesian citizens who live there can still receive information about the conditions of their country... They really need entertainment and information from Indonesia," he said on Monday (19/2/2024).


Through this collaboration, Indonesian citizens in Hong Kong can listen to or watch information produced by RRI via RTHK. A special program as a part of the collaboration is planned to be broadcast on the RRI's overseas broadcaster Voice of Indonesia


Previously, the RRI had also collaborated on a broadcast program with Chinese state-owned broadcaster, China Media Group (CMG) called Tiongkok dalam Layar ("China on Screen"). Through this program, the RRI will broadcast documentary films about local Chinese wisdom on its domestic visual radio channel, RRI NET, as well as on the RRI Digital application.


Furthermore, the RRI sent its superior documentary films from across Indonesia to be shown on CMG channels. "This is an effort to introduce Indonesian culture to China, and vice versa," said Hendrasmo. (RRI/Aditya Prabowo)
