Vietnam Airlines has announced that it will open a direct air route connecting Hanoi and Chu Lai in the central province of Quang Nam and restore flights between Hanoi and Vinh.


Beginning June 2, the national carrier will operate four flights per week on the Hanoi-Chu Lai route, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, using Fikker 70 aircraft.

Vietnam Airlines Director General Pham Ngoc Minh says the new routes are being opened to meet customer demand, increase cultural exchanges, trade and investment, and contribute to turning Vietnam’s central provinces into a key economic and tourist region.


The airline says it will add 224 more flights to domestic routes between April 22 and May 4 during celebrations of the death anniversary of the Hung Kings, the Liberation of South Vietnam and May Day.

PANO – A website to connect the National Assembly deputies and the public is to be built with the support of leaders of the Vietnam National Assembly, said the British Embassy in Hanoi today.


At a signing ceremony in Hanoi today, the Office of the National Assembly of Viet Nam, The Embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Hanoi and Thumbsize Ltd announced an initiative aimed at creating and piloting an online engagement website between NA deputies and the public.


This website is built under the technical support of Thumbsize Ltd, owner of Yoosk.com which has been piloted in the UK with the purpose of connecting public figures with British citizens.


The website is expected to be launched by early 2010 and will connect NA deputies with the public online for the first time.


Via this website, the public is encouraged to discuss and post questions to the deputies of the highest representative bodies in Vietnam on the issues that interest them.


Dr. Nguyen Si Dung, Vice Chair of Vietnamese National Assembly Office, stressed that “The website will enable the participation of Vietnamese citizen in legislation, and, at the same time, strengthen the relationship between elected deputies and the public which is in line with the policies of the Vietnam Government”.


Meanwhile, the British Ambassador to Vietnam, Mark Kent, said “The project introduces a new way of engaging with the Vietnamese public using participative media.”


“I hope this project will serve the interest of both National Assembly deputies and Vietnamese voters and will play an active role in improving the UK-Vietnam friendship relations,” he added.


Lord Davidson of Glen Clova, Advocate General for Scotland, visiting Hanoi to further enhance legal and judicial links between the UK and Vietnam, also welcomed the project:  “I am delighted to see first-hand the close ties that have been developed between the Vietnamese National Assembly and the UK through this project.”


“The Yoosk website is a great example of our ongoing commitment to work together on innovative projects based on the transfer of creativity, expertise and knowledge between the UK and Vietnam,” he said.


This is a pilot project lasting 6 months, starting from October 2009, with a total budget of £30,000. At the end of the pilot, the website will be owned, operated and managed by the Vietnamese National Assembly Office to serve for Vietnamese National Assembly activities.
