The latest Student and Exchange Visitor Information System or SEVIS update – which contains basic information on the more than 1.2 million international students studying in the United States at all levels – is out, and many of the results, while not encouraging, are not surprising. Among the top 10 places of origin, seven recorded decreases, ranging from -2.2% (China) to -11.5% (Mexico). Other countries with declining student populations in the US from autumn 2016 to this spring were South Korea (-2.68%), Saudi Arabia (-7.3%), Canada (-3.35%), Japan (-8.1%) and Taiwan (-3.5%). The downward trend is a harbinger of a significant shift away from the US that is currently occurring in many countries to the benefit of friendly competitor nations like Australia and Canada. Since these figures are for the spring semester and are based on applications submitted before or shortly after the US presidential election, the real proof in the statistical pudding will be in the … [Read more...] about Can Vietnam buck the Trump effect on recruitment?

Piano - Tuồng "Fire" by Pho An My and Dang Tue Nguyen Sat 29 Nov 2014, 8 pm Hanoi Opera House 1 Tràng Tiền, Hà Nội "Fire" is a project conceived 8 years ago by two artists Pho An My and Dang Tue Nguyen. Sharing the desire of creating a new theatre language as combination between piano and Tuồng, My and musician Dang Tue Nguyen has collaborated to generate "Fire" based on Tuồng script by poet Luong Tu Duc.

By Dr. Tung Bui, Faculty Director of Vietnam Executive MBA, University of Hawaii There has been a bit of discussion about bananas lately. In Vietnam, the recent success of growing quality bananas and the export of high-yield banana flowers and leaves from the commune of Tan Long, Huong Hoa, Quang Tri, have been praised as a successful initiative by local farmers to reduce poverty. Bananas are one of the most important and traditional fruits in Vietnam. According to the FAO, annual commercial production of bananas is just over one million tons. This number seems small.

According to Reuters, the global export market of bananas is worth $7 billion. If Vietnam wants to join the world's top producers of bananas for a share of this growing market, it has to quickly modernize its production. According to the United Nations, Uganda, China, … [Read more...] about NEWS BRIEF & COMMENT: The Chiquita-Fyffes Merger: Should Vietnamese banana farmers adopt mass production or product diversification?
The annual report of the Institute of International Education (IIE) shows that the number of Vietnamese students studying at the universities in the US in 2009-2010 increased by 2.3 percent in comparison with the previous academic year.

The country also leads South East Asian countries in terms of the number of students studying in the US. … [Read more...] about Economic recession hampers Vietnamese students to go to the US
