CNN's 'Iconic Hanoi' to be aired this month

The 30-min show will explore Hanoi in numerous aspects

The show “Iconic Hanoi”, among cooperation programs between Hanoi and the US Cable News Network (CNN), will be on the air this month. 

Hanoi is the gateway to Vietnam, one of Southeast Asia’s fastest growing economies. In Iconic Hanoi, CNN explores Vietnam’s capital through the realms of style, business, technology and the environment – capturing elements iconic to the city and looking at how they have evolved.

Highlights of the 30-min show include:

Sustainable fashion

Vu Thao is the founder and head designer of Kilomet109 – a sustainable fashion house in Hanoi. Thao often visits ethnic minorities across Vietnam and draws inspiration, techniques and materials to incorporate into her creations, combining Vietnam’s style, history and heritage with contemporary design.

The future of electric

VinFast is the automotive arm of the Hanoi-based Vingroup – one of Vietnam’s largest corporations. Last year, VinFast launched its first electric scooter, Klara – with hopes to find a more environmental alternative for the roads and giving the iconic motorbike a greener spin.

Bkav and “Made in Vietnam”

Software developer Bkav is Vietnam’s leading smartphone company, using 20 million dollars and around six years to develop the very first Bphone in 2015. Bkav is now expanding its horizons with over 300 stores across the country and entering the Myanmar market earlier this year.

Sustainable, agricultural architecture

 

Farming Architects is incorporating the traditional Vietnamese industry of agriculture into urban living, creating a more sustainable environment for the future. Embedding elements of aquaponics in their urban projects, founder An Viet Dung believes architecture is about more than just design, it’s a way of living.

Hanoi’s first recognized social enterprise

“Know One, Teach One” is the name and motto of Hanoi’s first recognized social enterprise, KOTO. It runs restaurants and a training school where underprivileged youth go through a two-year vocational program to learn skills necessary for careers in hospitality.
