VOV was scheduled to host the 58th ABU General Assembly in Hanoi in November, 2021. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been held online.

The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union was established in 1964 and now has 250 radio and television member stations in 67 countries and territories in Asia, Pacific, Middle East, Northern Africa, and Northern America.
