Vietnam has extended an Indian oil concession in the South China Sea and begun drilling in another area it disputes with China in moves that could heighten tensions over who owns what in the vital maritime region.
HANOI/NEW DELHI: Vietnam has extended an Indian oil concession in the South China Sea and begun drilling in another area it disputes with China in moves that could heighten tensions over who owns what in the vital maritime region.
The moves come at a delicate time in Beijing’s relations with Vietnam, which claims parts of the sea, and India, which recently sent warships to monitor the Malacca Straits, through which most of China’s energy supplies and trade passes.

As summer approaches, islanders from Tam Hai Commune, just five minutes by boat from Nui Thanh District’s Tam Quang Commune, will begin collecting seaweed (sargassum henslowianum) from the waters surrounding the island.
The seaweed harvest lasts nearly two months, so the beach will be crowded with local fishermen during this time. Continue reading “Tam Hai Island offers pristine weekend getaways”

VietNamNet Bridge – Sand exploitation brings huge profits even higher than that brought by illegal logging. Experts say.
At a working session with Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung, local officials in the Mekong Delta asked for the right to exploit sand on a riverbed without consulting with local residents.
Under current law, to collect minerals, individuals and organizations must submit reports on the possible impact on the environment, and to dredge passage, they must consult with the local community. Continue reading “Sand exploitation out of control as violators threaten authorities”

When its fertilizer plant funded by Chinese bank loans was bogged down by losses, state-run Vietnamese chemical giant Vinachem immediately turned to the government for help, instead of seeking solutions to revitalize the loss-making project.
In 2007, Vinachem closed a US$250 million loan deal, mature in 15 years, with China Eximbank to finance the construction of its nitrogenous fertilizer plant in the northern province of Ninh Binh.
As of March 2017, the state-run chemical giant had made seven payment installments worth a combined $87.5 million. Continue reading “Vietnam chemical giant calls for gov’t help with $125mn Chinese loan”
Earlier this month, the Environment Minister said “we can’t dump waste into the sea.”
More than understandable, given all the facts and dire warnings that were brought to the fore on World Oceans Day (June 8).
And no Vietnamese will ever forget what happened in April last year when steel maker Formosa discharged untreated effluents into the sea, killing millions of fish and disrupting, if not destroying, the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people living on the country’s central coast.

At a meeting in early June with State-run corporations on stimulating economic growth, Deputy Prime Minister Trịnh Đình Dũng asked the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PVN) to add another one million tonnes of crude oil to its projected output so that the country’s GDP can record 6.7 per cent growth in 2017.
