Internet Grows to 330.6 Mln Domain Names in Q1, 2017

VietNamNet Bridge - The Ministry of Finance (MOF) has lowered the fee for registering and using the national domain name ‘.vn’ in order to become more competitive with international domain name ‘.com’. MOF, in Circular 208/2016, stipulates many changes in the fees for registering and using the ‘.vn’ domain name, to be applied early next year. Under current regulations, registration agents must not collect higher fees than stipulated in the MOF fee frame. The money collected must be transferred to VNNIC and agents will receive commissions of no more than 30 percent. But from January 1, 2017, the fees will be different. Registration agents won’t receive commissions, but can set up domain registration and maintenance fees higher than stipulated to cover expenses and make profits. However, the fees must not be higher than the ceiling levels. The Ministry of Finance (MOF) has lowered the fee for registering and using the national domain name ‘.vn’ in order to become more competitive with international domain name ‘.com’. According to Do Quang Trung, head of VNNIC’s HCMC Branch, the policy will create competition in prices among registration agencies and eliminate price gaps between national domain name ‘.vn’ and international domain names. The fees for ‘.vn’ domain name stipulated in Circular 208 are close to, or even lower, than the fees for international domain names such as ‘.com’ or ‘.net’. The floor fee level set by MOF for someone to register the ‘.vn’ domain name is VND200,000, while the annual maintenance fee is VND350,000.…... [read more]

NDO – The 14th National Assembly passed the 2017 Law on Tourism (amended) at its third meeting on June 19, creating a clear legal corridor, driving force and favourable conditions for tourism development. Containing many new points, the Law on Tourism (amended) is expected to bring about positive effects, improving the quality and competitiveness in tourism activities in Vietnam. Developing tourism into a spearhead economic sector One of consistent points of view in the 2017 Law on Tourism is to consider tourists as the centre of all tourism activities. Many relevant contents, including regulations on the responsibility of People’s Committees at all levels and management boards of tourism destinations; business activities of organisations and individuals in the field of travel service; tourist accommodation and tour guides; and the business of other travel services, have been adjusted and supplemented in order to ensure the security, safety, and the legitimate rights and interests of tourists, as well as creating favourable conditions for visitors. Domestic tourism has developed rapidly over the course of the past few years, however, due to a lack of regulations on licensing, many organisations and individuals have not set up business, or have not announced when their business will commence, to the provincial tourism authorities. In addition, many travel enterprises have cut down on their programmes and services, as well as not ensuring the quality of their services, causing disorder and unfair competition. Therefore, in order to ensure the interests of domestic tourists, the 2017 Law…... [read more]

Restructuring plan highlights reallocation of resources By Tu Giang - The Saigon Times Daily HANOI – Resource reallocation is the major focus of the economic restructuring program that will be tabled at a meeting of the National Assembly Standing Committee in Hanoi on Thursday. The NA committee will scrutinize the most complex scheme at present, called “Economic restructuring in association with paradigm shift towards higher efficiency, capacity and competitiveness of the economy in the period 2011-2015, with a vision to 2020”. The program is aimed to transfer the resources of the economy from low-efficiency sectors to high-efficiency ones, said the program’s co-author. The main focus of the scheme is resource reallocation, in a bid to boost efficiency, capacity and competitiveness of the economy, said Nguyen Dinh Cung, deputy head of the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM), one of the composers of the scheme. Multiple sectors get involved in the scheme, such as credit system, stock market, and State-owned enterprises, signaling another economic reform ahead, he said. “Restructuring public investment, State-owned enterprises and financial system is the initial step to give a signal to the market, so as to reallocate the resources of the economy from low-efficiency and low-capacity sectors to high-efficiency and high-capacity ones,” said Cung. The scheme suggests 13 solution groups, including two special ones, to better the macro-economic environment, creating foundations for economic restructuring. One of the two special solution groups emphasizes the need to achieve the macro-economic targets in a stable and sustainable way. In addition,…... [read more]
