At the meeting, Mr. Jacques du Puy briefly introduced the operation of K + in Vietnam. K + currently provides television with equal quality on all platforms to more than 1 million Vietnamese subscribers. K + is also investing heavily in Vietnam and strictly compliances Vietnamese laws. At the same time Canal + strongly believes in the potential development of K + and is committed to long-term investment in Vietnam.

Minister Nguyen Manh Hung believes that, in the near future, K + will select suitable Vietnamese investors to co-produce Vietnamese programs in accordance with Vietnamese culture and interests, attracting people at different income levels.
The minister also asked the Canal + representative to share international experiences on the management of the television industry, especially in the context that the cross-border television services are growing strongly.
Vietnam Digital Satellite Company (also known as K + or VSTV) is the company operating the K + digital satellite television service, a joint venture between Vietnam Television Station VTV and France's Canal + Television Group.
