QĐND – Saturday, May 15, 2010, 21:20 (GMT+7)

Vietnam’s housing industry has much potential to develop, RNCOS, a US ’s market consulting service company, has said.

In a new report released on May 13 on its official website, RNCOS underlined that Vietnam ’s housing industry is charaterised by massive housing shortage and offers ample scope for developments.

Vietnamese housing market is on the urbanisation process with an increase in the number of households, the reports said.

The report also noted that majority of Vietnamese people do not have their own permanent houses and more than 70 percent of the total residents households nationwide are living in temporary houses without proper housing facilities.

The company estimated that Vietnam will need nearly 20 million houses to meet the country’s increasing demand.

One of factors hindering the industry’s development is the country’s limited financial capacity, according to RNCOS’s experts.

Gao Giong eco-tourism area in Dong Thap Muoi marsh in Dong Thap Province.

Most of the programs have focused on foreign investment, primarily the construction of factories and have not paid enough attention to local markets, environmental concerns, and infrastructure.

“The regional cities and provinces should join hands together to present an image of the Mekong Delta that attracts foreign investment, especially leading high-tech groups and countries with expertise developing agriculture” said Mr. Luu Phuoc Luong, deputy head of the Government Steering Board of South West Region.

However, in order to develop the region as intended, more attention must be paid to local concerns.  Also, the total capital invested in Vietnam by the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) must not exceed 10 percent of the national FDI target.

According to Mr. Bui Quoc Trung, deputy head of Foreign Investment Department of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, only Can Tho City, and the Long An, Hau Giang and Kien Giangn provinces have administered FDI policies fairly.

The Mekong Delta Information Center, a project created under the Ministry of Planning and Investment, will provide information of economy, society, trade, agriculture, tourism and more of Mekong Delta region to local and foreign enterprises and investors.

Based in Ho Chi Minh City, the project, has been budgeted at more than VND100 billion (US$5 million).  It is scheduled to kick off in the second quarter of this year and become operational by the fourth quarter of 2011.

Integration offers challenges, potential

HCM City (VNA) – Lawyers will have to broaden their knowledge and professional ethics to keep their career development on pace with Vietnam ’s integration into the world economy.

“ Vietnam ’s lawyers can now approach a new and potential service market thanks to the country’s accession into the global economy, to strong foreign investment flow and to diversified business forms,” said Ngo Thanh Tung, chairman of the law firm VILAF – Hong Duc during a two-day conference of the Presidents of Law Association in Asia (POLA) that ended on August 23.

According to him, Vietnam ’s legal system has been improving as it brings itself in line with international regulations and practices in response to WTO membership. Along with increasing transparency, the reforms have created a more favourable working environment.

Moreover, customers increasingly require new services like business contract negotiations, help with business establishment procedures and exploitation of new business opportunities.

New laws dealing with the environment or stocks demand lawyers expand their expertise to those fields, not just to legal issues.

Tung also stressed the importance of ethics in providing services to clients.

The legal environment, here and overseas, is in constant flux so lawyers must constantly be informed to best serve their clients, said Tran Anh Tuan, Vice President of the Ho Chi Minh City Bar Association.

Tuan cited four issues essential for lawyers: documents establishing the guidelines and legal frameworks for the economic integration promoted by international organisations like the UN or WTO, the latest international trade practices and procedures, information on the economic, legal, political and socio-cultural characteristics of the countries where their cases are, and IT skills.

More than 80 delegates from international law organisations participated in the 19 th annual POLA conference.
Participants came from 15 countries and territories, including China , Hong Kong , Japan , the Republic of Korea , Singapore and New Zealand , and international institutions.

Organised by the Ho Chi Minh City Bar Association, the two-day conference was the first of its kind to take place in Vietnam.-
