The decline has been anticipated. In mid-September, the US DOC announced the preliminary decision on imposing anti-dumping duties on frozen fillet catfish after the POR 13, from August 1, 2015 to July 31, 2016. Continue reading “Vietnam mulls ways of dealing with strict US anti-dumping duties”

Cách nay tròn 130 năm, vào năm 1887, một cuốn truyện viết bằng văn xuôi tiếng Việt nhan đề “Thầy Lazaro Phiền” của tác giả Nguyễn Trọng Quản, do nhà J. Linage, đường Catina, Sài Gòn, xuất bản, ra mắt công chúng.
Cuốn sách này, thay vì nổi tiếng từ đầu, đã suýt bị quên lãng. Suốt trong hàng chục năm từ sau khi nó ra đời, không thấy báo chí đương thời nhắc gì đến cuốn truyện này.
Hồi năm 1934, nhà in Nguyễn Văn Của ở Sài Gòn in thành sách một bản dịch nhan đề “L’ Histoire de Lazaro Phiền”, do con trai tác giả là Nguyễn Trọng Đắc dịch từ nguyên bản truyện tiếng Việt sang tiếng Pháp, có lời giới thiệu của P. de Midan, (1) cũng hầu như không gây tiếng vang gì.
