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.

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.
