VTV’s building

JAMCO has been distributing international versions of Japanese TV programs to developing countries all over the world ever since our organization was founded in 1991. All told, we have sent a combined total of 15,000 programs to 101 countries as of the 2023 fiscal year.

These numbers include more than 950 programs, such as the NHK educational program “Endless Wonders,” and the MBS documentary, “A Passionate Challenger,” shared with the national broadcaster, VTV, and other recipients in Vietnam.

VTV says that the programs provided by JAMCO are well-suited to the needs of its channel, which broadcasts educational and scientific programs.

Likewise, 171 programs, including the NHK drama, “The Sensitive Samurai,” were supplied to the Vanuatu Broadcasting and Television Corporation (VBTC) in 2022 and 2023.

The JAMCO library collection is being used in education, too. We have, for example, provided more than 30 documentary programs to the Uzbekistan-Japan Center for Human Resource Development (UJC) in Uzbekistan. The programs have been used as teaching materials to introduce Japanese culture in Japanese language classes.
