Cứu dòng Mekong: Việt Nam nên tăng cường mua điện từ Lào?

  19:50 | Thứ năm, 07/12/2017

Phát triển dựa vào dòng dòng Mekong, từ vấn đề và bài toán phát triển năng lượng của Lào hiện nay, theo các phân tích, Việt Nam có thể và nên đóng vai trò chủ động hơn nữa trong vấn đề phát triển thủy điện thượng nguồn sông Mekong.


ĐBSCL hình thành là nhờ lượng phù sa của sông Mekong bồi đắp nên trong 6.000 năm qua. Việc xây thủy điện trên các dòng chính sông Mekong là một trong những nguyên nhân khiến ĐBSCL tăng sạt lở, dần “tan rã”. Ảnh: TL  Continue reading “Cứu dòng Mekong: Việt Nam nên tăng cường mua điện từ Lào?”

Trung Quốc xuất khẩu nợ, Việt Nam có ảnh hưởng?

Để giải quyết gánh nặng dư thừa sản lượng và tỷ lệ nợ gia tăng của các doanh nghiệp trong nước, Trung Quốc đã đẩy mạnh các sáng kiến kinh tế đối ngoại, thúc giục các nước phối hợp với Trung Quốc để xây dựng các mô hình hợp tác kinh tế chưa từng có tiền lệ. Ảnh: Internet

(TBKTSG) – Theo một báo cáo của J.P. Morgan tháng 9-2017, tổng nợ của Trung Quốc tương đương 289% GDP, tức là khoảng 30.000 tỉ đô la Mỹ, tăng gần 30 điểm phần trăm so với năm 2015 (260% GDP). Điều đáng nói là sau các chính sách kích thích kinh tế để chống chọi với khủng hoảng tài chính toàn cầu, tỷ lệ này đã tăng gấp đôi chỉ trong vòng chín năm (năm 2008 là 141,3% GDP), bằng với mức tăng trưởng kinh tế. Ngân hàng đầu tư đa quốc gia Goldman Sachs cho rằng sẽ mất khoảng nửa thập kỷ để ổn định tỷ lệ này. Hãng S&P Global Ratings hôm 29-9-2017 cảnh báo tổng nợ Trung Quốc có thể tăng đến 46.000 tỉ đô la Mỹ vào năm 2021.

Tại sao TQ vẫn phải dò mìn ở biên giới Việt-Trung?

by VN Youtuber on Friday, December 01, 2017 in tin-tuc

Ngày 27/11 vừa qua, Trung Quốc bắt đầu tiến hành một đợt rà phá bom mìn ở vùng biên giới Việt-Trung thuộc tỉnh Quảng Tây.

Chiến tranh kết thúc đã mấy chục năm, trong thời chiến, Việt Nam cũng không sử dụng không quân để tấn công Trung Quốc, vậy vì sao đến hôm nay Trung Quốc vẫn phải tiếp tục dò mìn. Câu trả lời là họ đang phải đi rà phá những bãi mìn do chính họ bố trí ngày trước. Continue reading “Tại sao TQ vẫn phải dò mìn ở biên giới Việt-Trung?”

HONG KONG/PHNOM PENH Just a few blocks from the Royal Palace, in the traditional heart of downtown Phnom Penh, sits one of Cambodia’s most renowned Chinese schools. Over the past century, the Tuan Hoa School has witnessed the many ups and downs of the capital. Today, it has front-row seats to an unprecedented boom.

Run by a local ethnic Chinese organization, the school is one of the largest Mandarin-speaking elementary and junior high schools outside China and Taiwan. It currently has more than 11,000 students, including those at its branch campus. Continue reading “The ‘Chinazation’ of Cambodia”

China’s Revision of its SCS Claims: Does it Matter?

Ocean News, Nov. 27, 2017

While China did not recognize the jurisdiction
of the Annex VII arbitral panel under the
authority of the LOS Convention,
it is apparently recasting its claims based on land
territory rather than on an area enclosed by the
“9-Dash Line” that was rejected by the Arbitral Panel.

Why this is important: China’s new approach
to its jurisdiction in the South China Sea may
be presented as a concession by people who
do not understand that substantive claims
appear to have changed little from those
made under the infamous
 “9-Dash Line,”
so it is important that we all understand

the details of the new “Four Shas” policy.

Before we turn to China, considering the
continuation and revitalization
of Ocean Law News. While funds
are important, so are the numbers of
contributors – every reader counts

In August of this year, China presented a new take on its claims to the South China Sea. It isn’t clear whether the infamous “9-Dash Line” has been relegated to history or the new scheme is some form of supplement. The red line in the map below is based on the dashes of China’s 9-Dash Line.

The new proposal recognized the legal principle that”the land dominates the sea,” which means that jurisdiction at sea is based on the geography of the land, something that the 9-Dash line did not address. Continue reading “China’s Revision of its SCS Claims: Does it Matter?”

Trong khi Bắc Kinh phát triển Năng lượng tái tạo, thì các công ty Trung Quốc xây nhiệt điện than ở Việt Nam và các nước nghèo – As Beijing Joins Climate Fight, Chinese Companies Build Coal Plants

When China halted plans for more than 100 new coal-fired power plants this year, even as President Trump vowed to “bring back coal” in America, the contrast seemed to confirm Beijing’s new role as a leader in the fight against climate change.

But new data on the world’s biggest developers of coal-fired power plants paints a very different picture: China’s energy companies will make up nearly half of the new coal generation expected to go online in the next decade.

China Refuses to Admit It Has a Rape Problem. I Would Know.

PF via Yahoo News

The Communist Party wants to blame Hollywood and “loose women,” instead of acknowledging its own epidemic levels of sexual assault.

In the fall of 2004, when I was 19, I studied abroad in the beautiful coastal Chinese city of Xiamen. One Friday evening, I attended an English meetup at a local university, hoping to make some Chinese friends. To my surprise, a group of Chinese men — young, but older than I was — flocked to me, asking me repeatedly if I had any boyfriends, if my dating life resembled the popular American sitcom Friends, and if I was “open,” which I later learned was a poor translation for a Chinese phrase that meant “sexually liberal.” I was not.
