People have said that young people have spent much of their time and money playing online games. Violent, sexually explicit games have been blamed for many recent crimes.


Many have argued that the government should ban or limit development of online games.


However, other people said that it is not easy to implement a prohibition of online games. Players can play online games on foreign websites through internet.


The country’s authorities should delegate online game distributors to manage their sector directly. They must submit their management measures to the government for promoting and launching produces.


Online games attract 2-3 million Vietnamese young people.


Along with unwholesome content of many games, several games that are more wholesome have become hits in the country.  Such games require players to have knowledge of Vietnamese culture, history and society.


The government and entrepreneurs should join hands to produce attractive and educational online games to create a modern yet healthy playing field for the youth.

QĐND – Tuesday, May 18, 2010, 20:59 (GMT+7)

Vietnam became an attractive destination for Swiss investors, the Swiss State Secretary for Economic Affairs told a Vietnam-Switzerland business forum during the current visit to the Western country by President Nguyen Minh Triet.


Switzerland attaches importance to expanding economic co-operation with Vietnam, Secretary Jean-Daniel Gerber said, stressing advantages in an overview on economy, trade and investment between the two countries.


The two countries saw a constant increase in bilateral trade, registering five times in the 1998-2008 period. In 2009, Switzerland ranked fourth among Vietnam’s exporting markets, the Swiss official said.


Vietnam has a great potential for tourism, services, insurance, banking and communication, which, he said, are offering more opportunities for Swiss companies.


He stressed the on-going official visit to Switzerland by President Triet describing it as a milestone in the two countries’ history. He also spoke highly of Vietnam’s experience in overcoming impacts of the global economic-financial crisis, maintaining GDP growth and political stability.

Addressing the two countries business community, President Triet said with its motto of being a friend, reliable and comprehensive co-operative partner with all countries, regional and international organisations, Vietnam always wishes to turn companionship and friendship with other countries into strength in economic co-operation.


Vietnam is creating most favourable investment climate, and is ready to welcome Swiss firms to invest and do business in Vietnam, the President affirmed.


He expressed his pleasure at development of the two countries’ relations and thanked Switzerland’s assistance to Vietnam through most favoured nation status, common effective preferential tariff scheme, ODA and human training programmes.


Also at the forum, President Triet witnessed the signing of contracts on import and export of handicraft items, and fertilizers between both countries’ businesses.


Before attending the forum, President Triet received Credit Suisse leaders, who committed to inject capital in Vietnam’s major projects and provide financial governance human resource training to state-owned enterprises.


President Nguyen Minh Triet is on a four-day official visit to Switzerland from May 16 as guest of Swiss President Doris Leuthard.

Tokyo — President of the Japanese Kansai Economic Federation (KANKEIREN) Hiroshi Shimozuma said Viet Nam remained an attractive destination for Japanese businesses because of its stable socio-economic situation and large low-cost workforce.


Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Viet Nam-Japan Economic Forum in Osaka on Wednesday, he said KANKEIREN would pay more attention to human-resource development in Viet Nam and create more favourable conditions to boost bilateral co-operation.


Osaka Governor Toru Hashimoto praised the rapid development that had taken place in the Vietnamese economy and co-operation between the two countries. He affirmed that Viet Nam was Osaka’s most important partner and that he hoped greater bilateral co-operation would be realised in the future.


Meanwhile, Ho Duc Viet, Politburo member of the Communist Party of the Viet Nam Central Committee and President of the Viet Nam-Japan Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group, who is visiting Japan, said he highly appreciated the enduring and effective assistance Japan had given to Viet Nam, particularly in developing transport infrastructure, energy, tele-coms, and education and training.


Viet said that Japanese-supported projects had boosted socio-economic development and helped to reduce poverty in Viet Nam.


Wide open


As the two countries are in negotiations on the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), Vietnamese and Japanese markets are wide open to businesses from both countries, Viet said.


Vietnamese Science and Technology Minister Hoang Van Phong said that Viet Nam’s current economic difficulties would be temporary and would not adversely affect the investment environment.


Phong said Kansai would share its experience in technology, finance and marketing, with Viet Nam. —

TAQ2008.007 Vietnam remains attractive for FDI, says PwC

In Uncategorized on August 20, 2008 at 2:57 pm


Hanoi (VNA) – PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has made public its annual report on world investment, saying Vietnam remains attractive for foreign investors.

The second PwC Emerging Market 20 Index showed that Vietnam is now ranked 5th most attractive emerging market destination for investments in manufacturing, compared to its number one position in 2007.

The change in rank reflects mostly changes in the selection of the countries PwC considered for the update, PwC’s report said.

Based on macroeconomic data, a number of countries studied last year, for example the Czech Republic, Hungary and Saudi Arabia no longer meet the criteria for inclusion in the Model. On the other hand, three of the four countries preceding Vietnam, namely Egypt, Bulgaria and Serbia did not qualify for inclusion to the index calculations last year, it added.

Amongst the Asian countries in the PwC EM20 Index, India tops the Manufacrturing Index, followed by Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, China, the Phillipines and Indonesia.

Countries like Vietnam and Cambodia are still relatively small economies, their low-cost bases can some times offer higer margins to manufacturers.

The report said the BRIC countries including Brazil, Russia, India and China continue to offer good opportunities for investment.

The PwC is the world’s largest business advisory group, operating in 150 countries and territories. The PwC established offices in Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City in 1994.-
