Vietnam-Germany cooperate in managing water resources

QĐND – Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 20:39 (GMT+7)

A seminar on managing water resources in Vietnam and Germany was held in Hanoi on October 27.

The event, part of German Year in Vietnam 2010, aimed to protect water resources, keep up people’s health and maintain a clean ecosystem.

At the event, representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the German Water Partnership (GWP) signed a cooperative document about managing water resources.

Following recent statistics, more than 60 percent of the total water resources through out Vietnamese territory originates from foreign land. In Vietnam, water resources are allocated unequally during dry and rainy seasons.

On average, there has been 3840 cu.m of water per person per year. Water resources are also affected by climate change, and industrial waste. As a result, in the future, Vietnam may face water scarcity. Controlling water resources is an important goal to ensure sustainable development in the country.

The seminar was also a good chance to seek foreign partners to support action plans for managing water resources.

Vietnam, Mozambique urged to cooperate in agriculture

QĐND – Saturday, March 27, 2010, 21:10 (GMT+7)

The agricultural sectors of Vietnam and Mozambique need to tap their potential and develop long-term projects for benefit of both sides, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said.

The two sides need to implement their commitments and effectively carry out cooperation projects, thus contributing to promoting friendship between the two countries and peoples, PM Dung said while receiving Mozambican Agriculture Minister Soares Nhaca in Hanoi on March 26.

The Prime Minister expressed his support for agreements signed between the Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Agriculture Ministry of Mozambique.

He praised achievements the Party, government and people of Mozambique recorded in economic development and national political stability.

Minister Soares Nhaca conveyed an invitation to visit Mozambique from the President and Prime Minister to PM Nguyen Tan Dung.

Mozambique has been making great progress in national construction and development, the minister said, adding the country has, in recent years, registered an average economic growth rate of 7 percent annually, maintained political stability and improved people’s lives.

Minister Soares Nhaca emphasised the Mozambican desire and determination to boost friendship and multifaceted cooperation with Vietnam on the basis of mutual benefit and for peace and development.

Earlier the same day, Minister Soares Nhaca and his Vietnamese counterpart, Cao Duc Phat, signed an MoU of cooperation.

Local textile, garment firms cooperate to boost expansion

In Vietnam Economy on January 20, 2010 at 10:42 am

Domestic textile and garment enterprises are joining forces to expand distribution channels and retail store chains in the local market. The move is also aimed at easing the financial burden of renting space to do business as well as coping with global competition pressure by multi-national groups.

Customers choose new designs of Gia Dinh Textile and Garment Corporation (Giditex) and Saigon 2 Garment Joint-Stock Company at their retail store.

The cost of renting shop space has increased at a dizzying pace in Vietnam, with rates now up to US$800-3,000 per month. High rental fees have been one of the main obstacles faced by textile and garment companies in expanding their retail systems.

In the past, only large-scale companies have been able to afford the rates.

According to Ms. Duong Thi Ngoc Dung, director-general of the Nha Be Garment Company, large amounts of money must also be spent on brand name development. Therefore, it has been hard for smaller firms to promote local fashion, she said.

The Nha Be Garment Company has now invested more than VND20 billion (US$1 million) to build and develop its new “NBC” brand name, and expand its distribution channel and retail stores nationwide.

Meanwhile, the Gia Dinh Textile and Garment Corporation (Giditex) and Saigon 2 Garment Joint-Stock Company with its Gidini and Sanding brands, recently joined forces to open new retail stores.

Cooperating with other firms also helps enterprises offer customers a variety of goods with diversified designs for all ages, said Mr. Nguyen Huu Toan, director of the Saigon 2 Garment Joint-Stock Company.

Giditex has plans to collaborate with other garment enterprises like the Phong Phu Corporation and Saigon Garment Manufacturing Trade Joint Stock Company (Garmex Saigon) to open more stores. The merge will target consumers more effectively and directly, added Mr. Le Dong Trieu, director-general of Giditex.

The Vietnamese fashion industry is currently struggling against competitors from China, Thailand and Korea. The ASEAN-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA) began operations January 1 to evaluate and propose solutions for economic cooperation, investment and commercial exchange between China and ASEAN members in the near future.

Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar are set to join the ACFTA in 2015. Domestic garment companies will thus have five more years to promote their fashion products in local markets.

Experts say the countries should focus on four areas including design, marketing, production, and establishing a distribution network.

After building prestigious brands, Vietnamese businesses will stand to earn more money for every unit of clothing sold to exporters. Currently local businesses earn just a few cents per unit while foreign companies purchase inexpensive local products and then mark them up substantially under famous brand names.
