Vinh Hoi apartment building in District 4 is classified at level D, the dangerous level. The outer walls of the 4-story high building are covered with thick moss. More dangerous, over time, the ceilings of the apartments have been damaged, revealing concrete and steel. Mô tả ảnh According to the owner of apartment A18, from the end of 2018 till the middle of 2019, the district administration has called for investors to participate in the construction project and planned for resettlement; however, the coronavirus pandemic 19 stopped the plan. Truc Giang apartment building, which is ranked level D, suffers the same fate. The apartment building is empty because residents have moved to new places; yet, three families still refused to move to other places because they said their new residence is too far from the workplace. The city is now home to 474 apartment buildings, which were built before 1975 and only 10 of them have been rebuilt. The others, such as Nguyen Thien Thuat … [Read more...] about Lack of legal corridor results in stagnant renovation of old apartments
New data from the Census Bureau show America’s population growth stagnating in the final years of the decade, as declining immigration rates and an aging population run headlong into the coronavirus pandemic that pumped the brakes on migration within the U.S. The consequence is likely to be a fraught battle over the reapportionment process that will follow the bureau’s release of official population figures early next year. The estimates suggest that two states in particular — Alabama and New York — will spend the next few weeks on pins and needles, waiting to see which state wins the 435th seat in the House of Representatives. ADVERTISEMENT If reapportionment took place on the basis of the new estimates, Texas’s delegation to the House of Representatives would grow by three seats, Florida’s by two, and Arizona, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon would all add an additional seat. On the losing end is New York, which stands to see its delegation to Congress … [Read more...] about Stagnant population growth sets up close battle for 435th House seat
ADB highlighted bright prospects for the Vietnamese economy “Stagnant domestic consumption and weak external demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic slowed down Vietnam’s economy last year, but the growth momentum remains strong this year and next, made possible by Vietnam’s success in controlling the spread of the virus,” said ADB Country Director for Vietnam Andrew Jeffries. “But significant risks remain this year and next, including the emergence of new coronavirus variants and a delay in the government’s vaccination plan.” The Asian Development Outlook (ADO) 2021 says Vietnam’s economic growth will be boosted by export-oriented manufacturing, increased investment, and expanding trade. The growth momentum is expected to continue, thanks to ongoing reforms to improve the business environment and Vietnam’s participation in multiple free trade agreements involving almost all advanced economies. Rising international oil prices and increased domestic consumption is expected to push … [Read more...] about ADB forcasts Vietnam’s economic growth to rebound to 6.7 per cent this year
Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation. For starters, it’s safe to assume that Prime Day 2021 will see more discounts than ever before. How do we know? Because each Prime Day is bigger and better than the last — duh! So, Prime Day 2021. What’s it about? Well, it’s far too early to say with absolute certainty what we’ll see. Heck, we don’t even know for certain when it will be (though we have a pretty good idea — more on that in a bit). One thing is almost for certain, though: While Amazon will be at the heart of Prime Day 2021, other retailers will also be throwing their hats into the ring. What happened on Prime Day 2020? Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event. Amazon was left with no choice but to reschedule the … [Read more...] about Prime Day Deals 2021: When is it, and what can we expect?
Fruit exports to the US thrive Vietnam’s fruit exports reached about 1 billion USD in the first quarter of this year, up 10 percent compared to the same period last year. Of the figure, exports to the US - Vietnam’s 4cond-largest fruit and vegetable market - accounted for 30 percent. The market’s potential is expected to grow in the time to come. Growth is expected to continue in the future due to increasing market demand. The US is Vietnam’s second-largest fruit market, after China. It imports about 150 million USD worth of fruit each year. While the figure is rather modest, it is still significant in creating a driving force for fruit growers to improve the quality to meet the requirements of other demanding markets. Greater profit margins will create fiercer competition in the market. The price of Vietnamese fruit, meanwhile, is always higher than in countries such as Thailand. Prices are expected to fall in the time to come, though, as more enterprises invest in … [Read more...] about VIETNAM BUSINESS NEWS APRIL 29
