America imposes two tariffs on Vietnam’s PE bags

QĐND – Sunday, April 18, 2010, 21:19 (GMT+7)

The US International Trade Commission (USITC) has finally determined that Vietnam’s Polyethylene (PE) retail carrier bags will be subject to anti-subsidy and anti-dumping tariffs.

The taxes will range from 1-52.56 percent for ‘subsidy’ and from 52.3-76.11 percent for ‘dumping’.

With this decision, PE bags have become Vietnam’s first products that receive two kinds of tariffs in foreign markets.

In late March, the US Department of Commerce made a similar conclusion and asked the US customs and border protection agencies to collect certain amounts of money paid in advance.

Level 5-forest-fire warning imposes on U Minh Ha national park

QĐND – Thursday, February 25, 2010, 22:11 (GMT+7)

Nguyen Van The, director of the U Minh Ha National Park, on February 25th, announced that the forest fire warning was brought to level 5, an extremely dangerous level, for the Vo Doi special area and over 1,000 ha of forest under recuperation.

The rangers are ordered to temporarily prevent people from entering the park, or to limit the number of fruit pickers in the park.

As they work round the clock as fire watchers, all rangers have to grow vegetables and go fishing for their meals.

On the same day, the deputy head of the Ca Mau provincial People’s Committee agreed to give VND 200,000 to each 300 rangers on duty.

African Union imposes sanctions on Guinea junta

In World on November 7, 2009 at 5:14 pm

The African Union has implemented sanctions on Guinea‘s military rulers, AU Peace and Security Commissioner Ramtane Lamamra said Saturday.

“Africa has implemented sanctions against several dozen people in Guinea who are opposing a return to constitutional order,” he said at a press conference on the sidelines of a summit on the Madagascar crisis.

“The list has been sent to AU member states, to the UN Security Council and to the European Union (EU) so that we can harmonize our positions and take appropriate measures,” he added.

Lamamra said that “the hand outstreched to Madagascar to help it return to constitutional order coincides with the implementation of sanctions on Guinea: on the same day Africa is expressing its resistance to anticonstitutional changes of government. Democracy must be promoted everywhere”.

The sanctions include bans on travel and the freezing of assets held outside Guinea by the junta‘s leaders.

They were imposed after junta troops on September 28 opened fire at a rally in a Conakry stadium where protestors were urging junta leader Captain Moussa Dadis Camara not to stand in presidential elections planned for January.

Camara now wants to stand in the elections, despite his earlier committment not to do so and despite demands from the international community that he should not run.

At least 150 people died, the United Nations says. Human rights groups put the toll at 157 dead and more than 1,200 injured, including women who were publicly raped.

The military regime has said that 56 people died and 934 were wounded. NGOs say that between 150 and 200 people were killed and more than 1,000 wounded.

The United Nations has announced it will set up an inquiry into the massacre while the International Criminal Court said it will hold a separate preliminary inquiry to determine if war crimes were committed.

Both the AU and the west African economic grouping ECOWAS have already suspended Guinea and both the United States and the EU have imposed sanctions on the junta. ECOWAS has also imposed an arms embargo.

Camara seized power in the mineral-rich west African state on December 23 last year, just hours after the death of Guinea’s long-serving ruler Lansana Conte, who was an autocratic army general.

Cambodia imposes flight ban on Siem Reap Airways

In Uncategorized on November 26, 2008 at 4:04 pm

Phnom Penh (VNA) – The Cambodian government has slapped a temporary flight ban on domestic carrier Siem Reap Airways amid concerns over its safety standard, local newspaper reported on November 26.

“The government has decided to stop flights temporarily and replace them with flights from its parent company, Bangkok Airways,” Chea Aun, Director General of the State Secretariat for Civil Aviation, was quoted by the Phnom Penh Post as saying.

He noted that air service was needed to cater for foreigners, diplomats and tourists, and that the length of the ban would depend on the company’s response to questions about its safety record.

Siem Reap Airways issued a statement to travel agents on November 20, announcing the airline’s suspension of service and assuring all travelers that their reservations would be honored.

It added that all previously scheduled flights with Siem Reap Airways would be picked up by Bangkok Airways, which would accept all tickets issued for the banned carrier.

Bangkok Airways would operate four daily flights between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap according to normal flight schedules and beginning on November 22, effectively the start date of the temporary ban, the statement said.-
