PM urges Nghe An to enhance economic restructuring


QĐND – Monday, July 05, 2010, 21:27 (GMT+7)

Agricultural restructuring, particularly the transforming of ineffective agricultural land will help create more steady jobs for local people, said Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung during his working visit to the central province of Nghe An on July 5.


He made a fact-finding tour of Nghe An dairy farming project in Nghia Dan district, which was licensed in 2009. The US$350 million project, which takes the province 4 years to complete, is designed to raise 45,000 New Zealand dairy cows and supply 500 tonnes of sterilized fresh milk per day.


To boost socio-economic development, Nghe An must utilize the potential and advantages of forest and agricultural land and minerals while developing human resources, sea ports and airports and attractive policies for more investment, said Mr Dung.


He urged the province to expand breeding and farming models by applying advanced technology to provide highly valued clean agricultural products. He requested it to streamline administrative procedures to encourage all economic sectors into investment and development with a key focus on economic zones, transport infrastructure, and human resource development.


The Government leader asked the province to make drastic changes in socio-economic development in disadvantaged districts, successfully organise Party congresses at all levels and fulfill all the targets set for this year.


On the occasion, Mr Dung visited Kim Lien relic site, and High Command Military Zone No 4, which was praised for having contributed to the country’s socio-economic achievements. He asked cadres and soldiers from the military zone to make a greater effort to build a pure and strong military unit, cope with natural disasters, ensure political security and boost production in order to improve material and spiritual lives.

Indonesia, EU set up group to enhance economic ties

In Uncategorized on April 8, 2010 at 11:56 am

HANOI, April 8, 2010 (AFP) – Indonesia and the European Union have set up a body to study ways of improving economic ties, Indonesian Trade Minister Mari Pangestu said Thursday.


“We have just created a vision group between Indonesia and the EU to basically undertake a study to see how we can enhance economic relations,” she told AFP on the sidelines of an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Hanoi.


Asked if enhanced economic ties will include a free trade agreement, Pangestu said: “I don’t know. we have to wait for the study, they hope to finish it in the next six months.”


EU and Indonesian officials will meet in Jakarta in November to discuss the results of the study.


The EU now wants to negotiate free trade accords with individual ASEAN states instead of with the group as a whole, citing the different levels of economic development among the 10-nation bloc’s members.


Indonesia is ASEAN’s biggest country and the world’s most populous Muslim nation.


Alongside Indonesia, ASEAN’s eclectic membership also includes Singapore, whose 35,000 US dollar per capita income and gleaming skyscrapers are a stark contrast to poverty-ridden Laos and largely agricultural Cambodia.


The group’s other members are Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam — making a collection of emerging democracies, communist states and monarchies, as well as a military dictatorship in the form of Myanmar.

EC helps enhance reproductive health care services’ capability


QĐND – Tuesday, April 06, 2010, 20:55 (GMT+7)

A project to enhance the capability of public and private reproductive health services in Vietnam was introduced at a seminar in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on April 5.


The implementation of the 36-month project under the sponsorship of the European Commission (EC) late last year began in Jan. 2010 in a bid to contribute to poverty reduction through reducing mothers’ fatality in rural and remote areas in Vietnam, which is part of the Millennium Development Goals.


The project is designed to increase the access to and quality of family planning and essential reproductive health care services as well as improve the capability of public and private health establishments in managing and monitoring reproductive health care and family planning services.


Speaking at the seminar, chief representative of Marie Stopes International in Vietnam (MSIVN) Nguyen Bich Hang said that her organisation will closely work with target localities to test the model of combining the state and private sectors in providing reproductive health care at the grass root level.


In addition, MSIVN will cooperate with relevant health services and agencies to issue service cards for medical payments on a trial basis to draw lessons for the Government’s plan of extending health insurance to cover the whole population by 2014.
