Can Tho needs industrial reform: People’s Committee

Farmers harvest rice in Can Tho City. The city’s People’s Committee says the city should move away from its over-reliance on rice and fishery production and reform its industrial sector. — Photo baocantho.com.vn The Can Tho People’s Committee has called for industrial reform as the city’s Industrial Production Index (IPI) is not growing as quickly as in other cities. At a meeting of the People’s Committee, departments and district officials on Tuesday, the city’s Department of Planning and Investment reported that Can Tho’s IPI was 4.4 per cent lower than in January. In addition, the overall IPI in the first two months was only 5.63 per cent higher compared to the same period last year. This was the lowest IPI increase among other big cities in the country. Nguyen Minh Toai, director of the city’s Department of Industry and Trade, said the city’s rice harvest season had not arrived yet and workers were either on Tet (Lunar New Year) break or spending their time maintaining machinery for the harvest season. The city’s IPI is mostly tied to rice and fishery production and processing, and will increase once the harvest season starts and workers resume their normal work load after Tet break, he said. However, the People’s Committee said the city’s low IPI was due to over-reliance on the rice and fishery sectors, which are insufficiently profitable and slowing the city’s growth. The committee said the Department of Industry and Trade should work with other departments to introduce more advanced technologies… [Read full story]

​Vietnam initiates security plan for visit by US aircraft carrier-led strike group

A military unit of the central Vietnamese of Da Nang on Wednesday began the implementation of a plan to ensure safety and security for the upcoming visit of an aircraft carrier-led group of U.S. Navy ships. The security measures for the March 5-9 visit by the Carrier Strike Group One, (CSG-1) were adopted during a meeting held by the municipal border soldier unit, according to Vietnam’s Government Information Facebook page. Several agencies have been assigned separate tasks to secure all activities, from immigration and surveillance to security and safety, for the visiting warships, particularly the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, the guided missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain and the destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer. Under a program approved by both the Vietnamese and U.S. governments, the USS Carl Vinson-led CSG-1, with a crew of more than 6,000, will dock in Da Nang for a five-day visit from Monday next week. The historic visit, the first time for a U.S. aircraft carrier to be in Vietnamese waters since the war ended in 1975, was announced in January, when U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis visited Hanoi, his first trip to Vietnam since assuming his post. International media are referring to the upcoming visit as the largest military presence by the U.S. in Vietnam since 1975.

The scheme is among the steps being undertaken by the southern metropolis to realize its vision of becoming a smart city by 2025, which includes the development of low-cost energy, convenient public transport systems and improved healthcare services alongside high-quality education. At the core of the ‘smart schools’ project is the application of information technology and communications in the management and organization of educational activities, said Nguyen Van Hieu, deputy director of the Department of Education and Training. The ultimate goal is to establish a complete online interactive environment that interconnects schools, families, and society – the three pillars supporting a student’s success, Hieu explained. To realize this goal, tablets, interactive boards, and cyber teaching materials will be utilized to their fullest potential. Tests and examinations will also begin to be held online through Internet-connected devices, the director said. The municipal department of education will work to establish an open online library for teaching materials and education applications and software which all students and teachers can access and download for their own use. Apart from general exams, teachers are encouraged to compile personalized tests that are tailored to the ability and development of individual students, with the help of computer software.

​Vietnam’s chief submarine cable ruptures

The Asia-Pacific Gateway (APG), Vietnam’s lifeline undersea cable, broke down at 6:30 am on Tuesday at a spot 125 kilometers away from Hong Kong. The rupture has disrupted Internet connections from Vietnam to other countries, according to the Vietnam Posts and Communications Group (VNPT), a major Internet service provider in the Southeast Asian nation. The group said Internet services linked to overseas servers like Gmail, YouTube and Facebook would be affected to a certain extent. However, according to a number of Internet service providers, they have stored fallbacks for the cable failure, for they have been familiar with the situation. A representative from VNPT said to partly deal with the problem, it has rerouted international Internet traffic to other cable systems, which are safe and sound, and has been cooperating with its foreign partners to facilitate the Internet traffic volume related to servers outside the country. It has employed solutions which guarantee Internet service quality, ready to provide customers with information about the cable issue and give them prompt assistance. The time frame for restoring the cable has not been determined, according to an Internet service provider. Three of the important international cable systems crossing Vietnam are the Intra Asia (IA), the Asia-America Gateway (AAG), and the currently failing Asia-Pacific Gateway (APG). The last system, around 10,400 kilometers long, connects eight countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific, namely Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, mainland China, Japan, and South Korea. It can deliver a capacity of up to 54Tbps, the greatest of… [Read full story]
