ABC media release:

The Chairman of the ABC, Mr Donald McDonald, today warmly welcomed the decision by the Government to increase its funding commitment to Radio Australia.

"These additional funds will give the ABC the opportunity to strengthen its Radio Australia broadcasts to Asia to a significant extent," Mr McDonald said.

"The ABC will once again in Asia be able to match the transmission strength it has had with Radio Australia in the Pacific for the last three years.

"It is clear that the Government recognised the value and further potential of the ABC's service to Asia.

"The ABC will now examine transmission options, including Cox Peninsula, for the expansion of Radio Australia's Asian service.
