Prime Minister presents meaningful gifts to Truong Sa

QĐND – Thursday, June 10, 2010, 20:59 (GMT+7)

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has decided to present meaningful gifts to the Truong Sa Islands.

In his visit to Myanmar, from April 2nd to 4th, the Prime Minister was presented with two jade Buddhas from the World Buddhist Shangha and a Buddha’s sarira (sariras are relics , though it usually refers to a kind of pearl or crystal – like bead – shaped objects that are purportedly found among the cremated  ashes of Buddhist spiritual masters) from the Council of Shwedagon Pagoda.

The Prime Minister then decided to represent these gifts to Vietnam Buddhist Shangha.

However, the Prime Minister recommended that these two jade Buddhas should be placed at Song Tu Tay and Truong Sa Lon Islands in Truong Sa Archipelago, said Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Head of the Governmental Office yesterday.

“These are meaningful gifts from the World Buddhist Shangha and Myanmar’s Shwedagon Pagoda. The two jade Buddhas, which will be placed in the islands in Truong Sa, are also very meaningful to confirm Vietnam’s sovereignty on the area,” Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc said.

According to Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung also asked Vietnam Buddhist Shangha to help extend his thanks to the World Buddhist Shangha.

Korea Life gifts 1.000 free health check vouchers

Korea Life gifts 1.000 free health check vouchers

QĐND – Thursday, October 15, 2009, 20:14 (GMT+7)

PANO – On the occasion of the Vietnamese Women’s Day, Korea Life Insurance Company Limited (Vietnam), or better known as Korea Life, will cooperate with An Sinh Hospital (HCMC) and Tri Duc Hospital (Ha Noi) to organize a free health screening program for women during the period from 18/10 to 27/10/2009.

With its motto “thousands of joy, ten thousands of happiness”, this program is specifically designed for women aged 25 or above, married, and living in Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi. In order to register for this program, you only need to fill in some basic personal information at website during the period from 12/10 to 27/10/2009.

1,000 early birds will be given free health screening vouchers for the following services: gynecology, ultrasound of the belly, uterus and related organs, cervical cancer detection test (Pap smear), and medical consultation. They are also given 20% discount on any other health screening and medical test services.

All the late comers will be given health screening discount vouchers with 20% off on all health screening and medical test services at An Sinh Hospital and Tri Duc Hospital. Especially, there is no limit on the number of such discount vouchers.

Mr. Jung Seop Hyun, General Director of Korea Life Vietnam said “As a leading life insurance company in South Korea, we wish to join hands with Vietnamese people to nurture dreams of a brighter future. Improved quality of life includes not only better living standards but also other factors, such as health status. Vietnamese people often say “health is gold”, but few of them have regular health check-ups. Instead, most people only see a doctor when they have seen symptoms of illnesses. This habit does not only make it difficult for the medical treatment but also increases treatment costs and affects negatively on the patients’ financial conditions. By giving the free health screening vouchers to women, we expect that we will help thousands of wives and mothers to rest assured that they are completely healthy, or otherwise to be treated before it is too late. Therefore, we believe this is yet another worthwhile effort of Korea Life in community support.”

China showers gifts on resources-rich Timor

In World on September 14, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Dili‘s gleaming new Presidential Palace and Foreign Ministry, gifts from China, stand in stark contrast to nearby burned-out buildings and are symbols of how the energy-hungry superpower is growing closer to tiny, oil-rich East Timor.

In the 10 years since the independence vote that led to a split from Indonesia, China has spent more than $53 million in aid to East Timor, also known as Timor Leste.

While that is just a fraction of the $760 million in Australian government aid, China has raised its profile in dusty Dili in several other ways.

It is building big and showing generosity such as its donation of 8,000 tonnes of rice during a recent food crisis. Noticeable projects such as a new Ministry of Defense building, houses for soldiers and schools are underway as are scholarships and training programmes for civil servants.

In all, China is sending a very public message that it is serious about strengthening bilateral ties with East Timor, which many analysts put down to its desire to diversify strategic energy interests.

Loro Horta, who is a China expert at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and is the son of East Timor’s President Jose Ramos-Horta, said that the aid is linked to China’s desire for energy and infrastructure contracts.

“The Chinese are desperate for oil, every single drop for them counts and they are definitely looking to Timor as potential to meet that need,” he told Reuters in a phone interview, adding that he estimated the total value of investments by Chinese companies in East Timor to be less than $400 million.

East Timor is one of Asia’s poorest and least developed countries, but it has enormous oil and gas reserves.

East Timor’s President Jose Ramos Horta (L) inspects Dili’s new presidential palace, a gift from China, with China’s ambassador Fu Yuancong August 27, 2009.

The Bayu Undan gas field is expected to reap $12-15 billion by 2023, the country’s Natural Resources Minister, Alfredo Pires, told Reuters in an interview.

Bayu Undan is already the subject of a deal between Australia and East Timor but other, untapped reserves still need development partners.

Another oil field, Kitan, has an estimated 40 million barrels of recoverable light oil, Pires said, and the Greater Sunrise field contains around 300 million barrels of condensate and 9.5 trillion cubic feet of gas, according to the United Nations.

Lucrative opportunities also exist in the minerals sector, including copper, gold, silver and marble, and for big-ticket infrastructure projects as East Timor tries to reverse years of under-investment.

Pires said Spain, China and Australia are all keen on a piece of the Timor resources pie, while East Timor expert Damien Kingsbury from Deakin University said the United States and the United Kingdom are also interested.
