In May 2005, Radio Hoa-Mai contracted with WHR Corp., an international radio broadcasting provider, expanded its Vietnamese language service with a shortwave program, broadcasts two days a week to Vietnam. The radio broadcasting programs serve the mass of millions Vietnamese with majority in rural areas.
