By Ba Do, Giang Huy, Minh Cuong   November 18, 2019 | 08:10 am GMT+7 VnExpress

Expressways that burn up the road between Hanoi and northern provinces

A VND6.7 trillion ($289.6 million) expansion project to upgrade the Phap Van-Cau Gie expressway, the southern gateway to Hanoi, from four to six lanes was completed late last year and put into operation earlier this year.

The Phap Van-Cau Gie Expressway, which first opened in 2002, runs more than 32 kilometers (20 miles) to the south of Hanoi and links up with another expressway to the nearby Ninh Binh Province. The six-lane expressway is expected to cater to 60,000 vehicles per day and daily revenue from toll fees is estimated at more than VND2 billion ($86,400).

HÀ NỘI — The State Bank of Việt Nam (SBV) has proposed freezing the accounts of those suspected of committing the fraud.

The central bank also called for a ban on borrowing or renting bank accounts as well as certain intermediate payment services to improve account holders traceability and limit illegal activities in a draft amendment to a Government directive on cashless transactions.

Under the proposal, commercial banks could freeze accounts if they have sufficient evidence the accounts were used for or involved in fraudulent and illegal activates. Tiếp tục đọc “SBV proposes account freezes to tackle fraud”

Vietnam Keeps Producing Its Own Smartphones, So Why Don’t They Sell?

Made-in-Vietnam phones make sense economically. The country dependent on factory work for the past 30 years is moving up the value chain into electronics. Smartphone developer Samsung Electronics has invested $17.3 billion in Vietnam-based factories, for example. Public schools emphasize science. University graduates who work for a foreign tech firm will know all the more about how to make a phone.

bizhub – Speeding up the construction of the new Lien Chieu Cargo Port would help promote Da Nang as a key international logistics centre, and allow the existing Tien Sa Port to be reserved for cruise ships only.

Former general director of Tien Sa Port, Nguyen Huu Sia, made the statement at a recent workshop held to discuss changes to the city’s Master Plan proposed by Sakae Holdings and Subarna Jurong Consultants from Singapore. Tiếp tục đọc “Lien Chieu Port to play key role for a sustainable Da Nang”

Surging prices and a decline in the supply of affordable apartments are making it almost impossible for young Vietnamese to buy their first home.

Pham Hoai Nam used to think that being a grown-up means having a stable job, a good salary, a beautiful girlfriend, and his own house.

Now, at age 28, he is able to check off all of those items except the last one.

“My girlfriend and I plan to get married next year, and our only major concern now is finding a place to live,” Nam, who works as an electronics salesman in Hanoi, says.

He is among many young Vietnamese in major cities who are finding that their dream of owning a home is becoming increasingly elusive as real estate prices rise faster than incomes amid a decline in affordable apartment supply.

How a data detective exposed suspicious medical trials

If John Carlisle had a cat flap, scientific fraudsters might rest easier at night. Carlisle routinely rises at 4.30 a.m. to let out Wizard, the family pet. Then, unable to sleep, he reaches for his laptop and starts typing up data from published papers on clinical trials. Before his wife’s alarm clock sounds 90 minutes later, he has usually managed to fill a spreadsheet with the ages, weights and heights of hundreds of people — some of whom, he suspects, never actually existed.

Hanoi’s first metro line, the Cat Linh-Ha Dong route, has begun a 20-day commercial operation run for inspection purposes.

The trial will check all aspects or the line’s operations, from functioning stations with staff on duty at operation rooms and ticket booths. Electronic signs and loudspeakers are turned on to instruct metro commuters. Six to nine trains will operate on the route.

The first metro line runs 13 kilometers from Cat Linh Station in downtown Dong Da District to the Yen Nghia Station in the southwestern Ha Dong District.

The metro had made its first trial run in September last year, but that test was supervised by Chinese experts from the Shenzhen Metro Company.

The ongoing commercial trial will be supervised by Vietnamese employees from state-owned Hanoi Metro Company Limited.

The 20-day period will verify system safety and operational capacity of all employees, which is a mandatory step in the inspection process, said a representative from the Chinese general contractor.

It has been reported several times that work on the line is 99 percent complete. The 1 percent remaining work is mainly outlook finishing.

Mrs. BOT finds a way as villagers volunteer to pay

VNE – By Hoang Hanh   October 29, 2019 | 04:40 pm GMT+7

A 66-year-old widow collects very moderate toll fees for a one-km path she and her husband built on their own six years ago.

They call her Mrs. BOT, but as an endearment, not a derogatory epithet. The term, build-own-transfer, otherwise carries the connotation of many expensive toll fee stations along Vietnamese roads.

Mrs. BOT of the southernmost province of Ca Mau is a total different story.
