To mark the trial introduction of a new social networking site by the Government-run Viet Nam Multimedia Corporation (VTC), Vietnam News Agency spoke to Minister of Infomation and Communication Le Doan Hop. Is this the right time to introduce a Vietnamese social networking site? Are there any big differences between this site and other international ones, such as Facebook?
