The two day conference will focus on law enforcement strategies to stop the manufacture of deadly amphetamines such as methylamphetamine and MDMA, commonly referred to as ice and ecstasy, respectively. In recent years in Vietnam there has been a substantial increase in the use of synthetic drugs such as MDMA. Methylamphetamine continues to be a problem, Colonel Hoang Anh Tuyen from the Ministry of Public Security said. The hope is that this summit will enhance our offensive on the drug trade both here in Vietnam and throughout Asia. With industry and law enforcement working with each other, we can tighten controls on precursor chemicals which makes it harder for criminals to trade in these illicit substances. The conference brings together agencies committed to preventing the diversion of precursor chemicals into the illegal manufacture of amphetamines. This involves a range of groups from law enforcement agencies who investigate and prosecute those who produce and sell the drugs, to the laboratories who make the drugs, the companies who make the glassware necessary in the illegal ‘cooking’ process, to the pharmacists who sell over-the-counter pseudoephedrine products. All these groups throughout Vietnam and Asia need to work together in order to be one step ahead of the criminal networks that manufacture and sell these deadly drugs, noted Colonel Tuyen.  Jeremy Douglas, regional representative of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Southeast Asia and Pacific, introduced some proposed legislation to prevent pseudoephedrine products…...

Allan Gabor, president of Asia Pacific for the bio-pharmacy business of the Merck Group. — Photo Merck Group In the current Vietnamese socio-economic context, pharmaceuticals play a crucial part, especially in prevention and treatment of diseases. However, with the emergence of new pathologies, ‘the thirst’ for medical and pharmaceutical therapies is increasing significantly among consumers and patients. Recently the medical aspect was also one of the key topics for discussion at APEC 2017. In discussions at the 7th APEC High-level meeting on Health and Economy, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam indicated that investment in health is tantamount to investment in development. However, experts at APEC 2017 also emphasized that there are visible challenges for Vietnam in promoting healthcare, especially in rural and mountainous areas. The need for an efficient, sustainable health system and financing, trade and investment flows continue to grow in the current context. Seeing the potential and demand for medical treatments in Viet Nam, many pharmaceutical and research companies have jumped into this competitive market to invest in better treatments and fulfill the need for advanced medical therapies. As the world's oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company, with more than 300 years of experience in healthcare, life sciences and performance materials, Merck works to further develop technologies that improve and enhance life ranging from biopharmaceutical therapies for treating cancer and multiple sclerosis to cutting-edge systems for scientific research and production. Merck representative offices in HCM City and Ha Noi are responsible for…... [read more]

Long Bien JSC (Lobico) is ready to transfer back the land the golf course is currently situated on at the government’s request, so long as it receives compensation for the huge investment earmarked for the project, company deputy chairman Tran Van Tinh has said. Tinh currently owns a 48.5% stake in Lobico, the owner of the 36-hole Tan Son Nhat Golf Course. The facility is said to occupy a huge space that should otherwise have been allocated to the overloaded Tan Son Nhat International Airport which is to be expanded. The airport currently receives 32 million passengers per annum, compared to its design capacity of 25 million. “If the government wants to revoke [our] project to serve eco-social development or national defense, any business should comply to the request, and we will do the same with the Tan Son Nhat Golf Course,” Tinh told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper. Even though Lobico has channeled investment worth trillions of dong into the project, Tinh said that he would not be upset if the golf course was withdrawn. (VND1 trillion = US$44.05 million) “I do not feel anything abnormal,” he said. “Businesses have to be ready to take risks, especially policy risks, on every investment and this is the case here.” Tinh added that some of the Lobico shareholders may be sad, “but things will be alright.” The Lobico deputy chairman claimed that he had nothing to worry about as the golf course has been…...

Tran Uyen Phuong, deputy general director of Tan Hiep Phat Group, Vietnam’s largest beverage company, shares with VIR’s Kim Duc the core values behind the company’s growth and its corporate social responsibility record, particularly the smart usage of water resources in production, looking for sustainable development. Tran Uyen Phuong, deputy general director of Tan Hiep Phat Group How do you perceive the current state of water environment and the importance of fresh water usage in Vietnam? Water is an essential resource in people’s lives as well as production activities. We are encountering a dearth of water resources or increasing contamination, particularly in urban and industrial zones. Contaminated water resources have become commonplace in big cities and rural areas. This can be attributed to a combination of factors: climate change implications on the global scale, industrial wastewater being discharged directly into the environment or the inefficient treatment of human or animal (cattle) waste due to backward infrastructure in remote localities. Overuse of plant protection products, such as pesticides in agricultural production, has also led to rivers, lakes, and canals becoming seriously polluted, directly affecting people’s health and production activities, and badly impacting on the nation’s economic development. Is the sustainable development target the core reason for Tan Hiep Phat’s spending hundreds of millions of US dollars on employing state-of-the art Aseptic technology for production? From early years, Tan Hiep Phat has been pursuing the…... [read more]

The Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) has requested all public educational establishments to refrain from collecting fees other than tuition fees in the 2017-18 school year. MoET ask schools to impose tuition fees not exceeding the tuition fee cap regulated by the Government. - Illustrative Photo vov.vn The school year officially starts at the beginning of September. Extra fees have been a lingering problem for students at schools of all levels in Việt Nam. In many cases, extra fees imposed on students, such as fees for upgrading classroom facilities, fees to renovate school infrastructure and fees for extra classes, far exceed the actual tuition fee. According to the new request, the MoET also asked schools to impose tuition fees not exceeding the tuition fee cap regulated under Government’s Decree 86/2015/NĐ-CP, which prescribes collection and management of tuition fees of educational establishments under the national educational system. Schools are requested to abide by MoET’s policy for tuition fee exemption, reduction and support from the 2015-16 school year to the 2020-21 school year. They should set up transparent in-house expenditure mechanisms and publicise them so that staff, students and other organisations can monitor their activities, the MoET said. Localities are responsible for monitoring educational establishments under their management and can order disciplinary actions against organisations or individuals violating the regulations.

Growth cannot be sustainable in APEC economies unless it is economically, financially and socially inclusive, experts said at a symposium held yesterday in HCM City. Participants take part in a symposium held yesterday in HCM City as part of the third APEC Senior Officials Meeting (SOM-3). They discussed economic, financial and social inclusion in APEC economies. - VNS Photo Gia Lộc Bùi Thanh Sơn, deputy minister of Việt Nam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and chair of the APEC Senior Officials Meeting, said: “Economic growth is important in improving everyone’s living standards, but it is not an end in itself.” “Current realities in our region show that we cannot pursue growth at any cost without knowing who will benefit from it, or how socially, economically and financially sustainable it is,” Sơn said. “It is also clear that growth will neither reach its full potential nor will it be sustainable if it is not inclusive.” To strengthen APEC’s role as a driving force of global growth, all segments of society should be brought on board, he added. While APEC has made many efforts to promote inclusion, significant gaps remain between what APEC has done and the expectations of the public, according to Sơn. “There is currently no holistic set of policies in APEC to promote economic, financial and social inclusion, while these three pillars are mutually dependent and mutually reinforcing,” he said. A…... [read more]
