Thirdly, Viet Nam should not compete with other countries to court more foreign capital by only offering investment incentives, as this can distort resource allocation and will not have a meaningful impact in the long run. The country will be more attractive to foreign investors if it can correct its weaknesses and shortcomings, such as improving the capacity of capital absorbency, perfecting logistics infrastructure, upgrading workers’ skills and ability, and reforming institutions. … [Read more...] about Can Vietnam could take advantage of new foreign investment strategies?

Hanoi (VNA) – Foreign experts have highly evaluated Vietnam’s response to the recurrent outbreak of COVID-19. In a BBC article published on August 8, Prof Michael Toole, an epidemiologist and principal research fellow at the Burnet Institute in Melbourne (Australia), said: “Like in the first wave, Vietnam has responded quickly and forcefully” when talking about the sudden resurgence of the coronavirus in Da Nang. This central city sealed itself off from visitors and retreated into full lockdown after Patient 416, the first case of local infection after 99 days without community transmission in Vietnam.

He continued, “Here’s another perspective. Over the past two weeks, we’ve suffered one death from COVID-19 every 77 seconds. President Trump continues to insist as he put it, it will go away like things go away, and when pressed in an interview recently, Mr. Trump added, ‘They are dying, that’s true. It is what it is.’ Yes, it is what it is. And what it is is a once-in-a-century health crisis made worse by partisan politics, testing mistakes, evolving advice, a public too quick to ignore safety guidelines, and a president who has chosen to deny, dismiss and distract for far too long.” … [Read more...] about NBC’s Todd: Trump Is Continuing to ‘Deny, Dismiss and Distract’ During ‘Health Crisis’
