The ministry’s Legislation Department deputy director Nguyen Huy Quang must write an explanation about his revealing a report on inspection results of Tamiflu scandal to the media when the report was not approved by the Government.

The media released last month the report of Government inspectors who accused the ministry and four local drug makers of wasting financial resources because of overestimating the need for Tamiflu in November 2005.

Mr. Huan said the report had no legal validity because of lacking government approval and ministry’s opinion.

The ministry has ordered the destruction of a controversial reserve of over 9.7 million capsules of Tamiflu while some health experts say it is a waste, suggesting to recycling the drug because Vietnam, one of bird flu-hit countries, has high bird flu cases only after Indonesia.

In addition, avian influenza virus circulation and high load of other flu strains could lead to mutation and a human influenza pandemic. Therefore, the country planned to earmark US$211 million for fighting against pandemic for the period 2011-2015.

Ha Tinh asked to draw more investors to Vung Ang EZ

QĐND – Monday, July 05, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

The central province of Ha Tinh needs to invest more in infrastructure in the Vung Ang Economic Zone (EZ) and create favourable conditions for businesses that are carrying out projects there.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung made the request at a working session with the provincial leaders during his trip to Ha Tinh province on July 4, focusing on its socio-economic performances in the first half of 2010 and development directions for the 2011-2015 period.

PM Dung urged the province to take full advantage of Vung Ang deep-water seaport, step up investment promotion and simplify administrative procedures, in order to attract more investors to the Vung Ang EZ.

Ha Tinh province must utilise from 6,000 km2 of land, including 100,000 ha for farming and 250,000 ha for afforestation, and a population of almost 1.3 million, he said, adding that it needs speed up the application of scientific-technological advances to cow breeding and rubber growing.

The government leader asked Ha Tinh to upgrade and build more healthcare and education facilities, develop human resources, ensure social security and reduce traffic accidents.

PM Dung praised the socio-economic achievements the province has reaped over the past five years, referring to its annual average economic growth rate of 9.6 percent and preliminary successes in developing industrial and economic zones and seaports.

However, the PM also pointed out a number of shortcomings facing Ha Tinh such as low per capita income, which stands at VND11 million a year, equivalent to just half of the nation’s average, a high rate of poor households and poor socio-economic infrastructure’s facilities.

During his visit, PM Dung inspected the construction of resettlement areas and the construction tempo of major projects in the Vung Ang EZ, including the Vung Ang 1 thermal power plant and the Son Duong steel complex and seaport. The EZ has so far attracted more than 90 projects with a combined registered capital of almost VND200 trillion (US$10.5 billion).

The government leader also called at the monuments to the late Party General Secretaries, Ha Huy Tap and Tran Phu, and the Dong Loc T-junction relic site.

Media agencies asked to raise news quality

QĐND – Monday, June 21, 2010, 22:17 (GMT+7)

The National Assembly, Party and Government leaders have asked the media to further enhance its news quality while asserting its important role in social life.

At his meeting in Hanoi on June 20 with journalists on the occasion of Vietnam’s 85th Revolutionary Journalism Day (June 21), NA Chairman Trong praised the media as “a close friend” and “an important information channel” of the National Assembly.

“Whether the National Assembly’s sessions can drum up public interest or not are largely attributed to the press,” Chairman Trong said, urging the media to improve the quality of coverage so that readers can understand the legislative body’s activities more thoroughly.

He particularly hailed the press in general, and the newspapers of the NA in particular, for disseminating information on activities related to the NA, its committees and the people’s councils.

Mr Trong said he expects the media to focus more on covering positive trends in society and combating negative phenomena as well as sabotage schemes under the guise of democracy and human rights to undermine the national unity.

The same day, To Huy Rua, who is politburo member, secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) and head of the CPVCC’s Education Commission, visited the Vietnam News Agency (VNA).

Rua spoke highly of the VNA’s contributions to the national construction and development, emphasising that the VNA has successfully fulfilled its role and responsibility as an important and reliable strategic information channel of the Party and State. Its provision of timely and accurate information has served well the policy-making and execution as well as meeting the research and information demands of other agencies.

He also affirmed that the VNA has well performed its tasks to bring the news to the Vietnamese community and foreign friends abroad.

The VNA should continue to raise the quality, effectiveness and competitiveness of its services, and develop the multi-media news service, including the creation of its own television channel, Mr Rua noted, expressing hope that the country’s only news agency will be able to keep pace with regional and international news agencies.

Later, Mr Rua made a tour of the Nhan Dan (People) newspaper, Radio the Voice of Vietnam, the Communist Review, the Quan doi Nhan dan (People’s Army) newspaper, the Vietnam Television, the Cong an Nhan dan (People’s Police) newspaper, and the Journalism and Propaganda Institute.

Congratulating the journalists on their anniversary, Mr Rua asked the media to focus on covering on Party congresses at all levels in preparation for the 11thth National Party Congress, and the implementation of the campaign “Studying and following the moral example of President Ho Chi Minh” and other major events in 2010.

The same day, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan held a working session with the staff of the Governmental e-portal, where he asked them to improve the accuracy, timeliness and efficiency of the information.

The portal should also provide in-depth analysis of the Government’s viewpoints and policies to help the public gain a better understanding, Mr Nhan said.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung delivered this request while chairing a session in Hanoi on March 10 between the cabinet and state-owned groups and corporations on tasks and solutions to implement the plans set for 2010.

To reach these targets, PM Dung suggested state-owned enterprises re-examine their production and business plans and deploy projects on schedule, shooting for an annual average growth rate of 10 percent.

The government will create favourable conditions in terms of procedures for businesses to carry out projects effectively, the PM said, noting that as soon as each power, cement or fertiliser plant goes on line, they begin to contribute to raising the nation’s output and its GDP and to generating more jobs for workers.

To rein in inflation, the leader urged the state-owned sector to make specific calculations so as to prevent speculation in goods.

Regarding social security, PM Dung called upon the economic giants to step up production and business activities, increase the income of workers, and support the country’s 62 poorest districts in socio-economic development.

He took this occasion to applaud the efforts of the state-owned sector in observing the Party and government’s guidelines and thus contributing to the nation’s general socio-economic achievements in 2009.

Despite various difficulties and challenges, Vietnam managed to record a growth rate of 5.32 percent, and state-owned groups and corporations made up 42 percent of the nation’s GDP, the PM elaborated.

However, PM Dung also pointed out weaknesses and shortcomings faced by such businesses, citing their low productivity, weak competitiveness, scattered investments and limited application of scientific and technological advances.
