Investors are seeking alternative opportunities in central coastal cities like Danang and Nha Trang, given the high property prices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. In anticipation of the trend, foreign developers with strong financial capacity have ramped up acquisitions or have been partnering with local developers to scale up projects there. Central Vietnam features a coastline of scenic beaches which have attracted a growing number of domestic and international tourists in recent years. Consequently, the coastal cities of Danang, Nha Trang, and Hoi An have become popular second-home markets, with completed infrastructure as well as a plethora of living and entertainment services. Many tourists, investors, as well as locals desire to own beachfront apartments or villas in the area to enjoy their weekend holidays. On top of this, coastal properties would make good potential investments in the future. In fact, many investors who invested in Danang’s land plots have made a fortune when land prices have risen by 300-400 per cent after 5-7 years of investment. As market sentiment is improving, individual investors are cashing in on non-Central Business Districts (non-CBD), like the central province of Quang Nam near Danang or the suburban areas of Nha Trang. In June, Dat Quang JSC and CEN Group unveiled Ngoc Duong Riverside–The Gardens in Quang Nam in the south of Danang. At the launch, hundreds of customers and investors made deposits to snap up land plots, half…... [read more]

NDO – A number of businesses are successfully experimenting with the industrial waste treatment model and recycling waste into electricity, to benefit the people and meet the needs of the country's development. However, the operation of waste-to-energy (WtE) technology is not simple, requiring strong incentives in order to develop this potential source of renewable energy. >>> Pioneering industrial waste power generation plant opens in Vietnam >>> HCM City considers building of waste-to-energy plant >>> HCM City backs building of waste-to-energy plant Potential from WtE Beginning operations at the end of last April, Go Cat WtE plant (Binh Tan district, Ho Chi Minh City) has processed approximately 500 tonnes of industrial waste, while generating 7MW of electricity into the national grid. The plant is operated by a system of pre-processed garbage equipment, such as primary and secondary cutting equipment, industrial garbage pressing equipment, gasification furnaces, syngas containers, and three syngas generators with a capacity of 550kVA each. According to the Ho Chi Minh City Urban Environmental Company, Go Cat landfill, which covers an area of 25 ha, operated from the end of 2000 to July 2007. Since becoming inactive, there was over 5.3 million tonnes of rubbish at the landfill. At the beginning of 2017, Ho Chi Minh City Urban Environmental Company, in coordination with the Hydraulic - Machinery Company, made a proposal to the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee for an experimental Go Cat WtE project to be constructed in order to convert solid waste and industrial garbage into…...

When it comes to social housing or affordable housing for low-income earners, funding is usually a key factor in such projects. However, once the projects are completed, problems in planning, investment management and efficiency tend to crop up. Few resettled families move to Hoàng Cầu Resettlement Housing Project in Hà Nội’s Đống Đa District despite the project almost being completed. - Photo daidongland.com In Hà Nội, poor planning has been blamed for the high demand for low-cost housing and disused housing projects. Late last month, the Ministry of Construction agreed to re-designate three apartment buildings meant for students in Pháp Vân – Tứ Hiệp New Urban Area to social housing for other low-income earners. The State-funded dorm project consists of six apartment buildings in Pháp Vân- Tứ Hiệp New Urban Area in Hoàng Mai District. The project began construction in September, 2009 and was expected to provide accommodation for 22,000 students. Since January, 2015, three apartment buildings have been completed with more than 1,200 furnished apartments, each apartment nearly 57 sq.m for eight students priced at VND 205,000 per person per month. The rental price is a third or a quarter of prices offered by private landlords. When the project was announced, as many as 15,000 students of universities and colleges in the project’s neighbourhood applied for accommodation. However, so far, just 30 per cent of completed apartments are in use. …... [read more]

VietNamNet Bridge – Quite a few transport projects in Ha Noi’s rural areas are not up to scratch due to lack of capital and difficulties in disbursing investments. A temporary bridge across the Day River in My Duc District, Ha Noi. — Photo hanoimoi.com.vn Nguyen Duc Toan, deputy head of the transport infrastructure management division under Ha Noi’s Department of Transport, told the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) that the rural transportation system lacks water drainage systems, signs and technical infrastructure. The system of roads across fields satisfies local economic development, but it needs continuous improvement. Many localities invest in rural areas’ transport based on the current situation, not on planning. Toan said transportation system investment in Ha Noi’s rural areas lacks comprehensiveness, only focusing on road upgrades but not on building new roads and replacing weak and temporary bridges. Vu Hoang, vice president of the Ha Noi Road and Bridge Association, told VNA that the rural transport system has yet to meet the requirements of agricultural production. The roads in some places are so narrow that trucks cannot enter the fields. This, in turn, increases production costs and product prices. For many years, residents of My Duc, Ung Hoa, Soc Son, Chuong My, Thanh Oai districts have had to cross degraded bridges, resulting in a drownings at My Luong floating bridge in Chuong My District in July 2015 and at Seu Market floating bridge crossing Ung Hoa and My Duc districts in June 2016.

Since coming into being, Marxism has experienced many ups and downs, but it stands firm amidst attacks by ideological enemies of different colour. In recent years, there has been an anti-Marxist campaign to various extent launched in forums and newspapers in western countries and Eastern European countries and the former Soviet Union, and even in Vietnam. First, they produce comments “cautiously” criticising arguments and pointing out some shortcomings of Marxism. They criticise the fundamental principles of Marxism, considering it something of past history, which no longer keeps up with the development of the current era. They then reject Marxism in the end. Smearing socialism and criticising Marxism continues at full steam, and the number of people involved in the campaign seems to be increasing accordingly. In addition to the ideological enemies of Marxism and non-Marxist persons in international workers’ movements, it is surprising that several figures, who regard themselves as loyalists to Marxism, are now turning their backs on Marxism by strongly criticising and making slanderous charges against Marxist-Leninism. Some people who do not understand or study Karl Marx even come out strong against him. Why so? Is Marxism outdated? The fact is that Marxism is confronted with serious challenges. In fact, there are several arguments different from our traditional points of view and Marx’s predictions. However, all the arguments have their causes and can be explained. Some issues have direct causes, but there are also deep-rooted causes hidden in Marxism itself. The new phenomena of modern capitalism and socialism…... [read more]
