In recent years, Vietnam's agriculture has gained certain development, making important contributions to the export sector of various agricultural commodities, especially rice and catfish. However, this development remains short of fulfilling the sector’s full potential; one of the reasons is the absence of a successful value chain for agricultural products. One important measure to develop the value chain of agricultural products is to encourage trade enterprises to participate. Currently, there are still many difficulties hindering enterprises when participating in the agricultural value chain relating to activities of trade promotion, production stimulation, ensuring product quality and reasonable price for consumers. The trade companies’ role is under-appreciated. This has made it more difficult for the catfish industry. In addition, the role of rice buyer is also not been recognized properly despise purchasing over 93 percent yield. To solve this problem, recently in … [Read more...] about How to Enhance Role of Trading Companies in Value Chain of Rice and Catfish?

(VEN) - "Fifteen years ago, people used slippers because it was convenient and "cool", but now, hardly anyone goes out with slippers. Likewise with lights, many years ago, having a round light bulb in the house was considered decent, but in the context of current power shortage, LED is the number one choice because of its high capacity lighting and electricity efficiency. Many countries around the world have already adopted LEDs. Vietnamese have also created their own LED generation. Pointing at the street and household LEDs, Dr. Nguyen Van Khai - Former director of Electrical Energy Efficient Lamp and Electrochemical Activation Solution Center shared. Proud of Vietnam's products Despite being located in a hidden away booth at the third Environment and Energy Technology International Exhibition (ENTECH 2011) the LED stall of "ozone old man" Nguyen Van Khai remained crowded. People were curious about the old doctor with white hair, chubby body and easy smile as he spoke passionately … [Read more...] about Vietnamese LED Production Lights the Way

On the occasion of Vietnam’s National Day on September 2, VIR gets an insight into foreign CEOs’ thoughts and feeling about the country’s vitality and development, and why Vietnam has become their home away from home. Vietnam has come far in the last decades, and some in the foreign business presence have witnessed its celebrations and struggles, Photo: Le Toan Ronan Le Bihan CEO at Mango Bay Resort, Phu Quoc In 2002, I was offered a position for the setup of “Le Domaine de Tam Hai”, a beach resort in Chu Lai Open Economic Zone, Quang Nam. At that time, the only knowledge I, and many people in my country had, was that Vietnam was one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia. But obviously it was still early days and development was far from where we are … [Read more...] about Standing witness to Vietnam’s rise

LED lighting has been placed in the spotlight – no pun intended – as more and more people have become aware of the advantages LEDs offer. Already, LEDs have witnessed dramatic market growth. This growth isn’t temporary either. The global LED market is expected to grow another 13.4 per cent (or $10.1 billion) in 2012 and about 40 per cent within a few years. The impressive rise of LEDs is being driven by the technology’s superior energy efficiency. Increasingly sophisticated designs are hitting the market, and consumers are lining up to buy lights that use less electricity, cut down on utility bills and ultimately help pave the way toward more eco-friendly buildings. In terms of technology, Asian LED lighting manufacturers in particular have jumped out in front. This is large part due to the booming demand in Asia for lighting solutions as well as the massive investments on the part of manufacturers to better meet that demand. DigiTimes, a well-known … [Read more...] about Lighting the future
Son Doong had become a regular topic in our family’s conversation. But a trip to the world’s largest cave was a remote dream since I knew that people who had registered long time ago might only take the trip in mid-2017 at the earliest.So my heart skipped a beat a few weeks ago, when I got a phone call saying there was a vacant place in a team that was about to take off on March 1. I thought I was very lucky to get this place. On the phone, I said "yes" without any hesitation but a moment later the guy from a tour company cooled me down saying, “Only if you pass the health check.”I had to fill in a very detailed questionnaire sent to me by Oxalis, the only authorised tour company that could take explorers inside Son Doong. I am neither an active athlete nor a frequent exerciser, so I had to put in everything physical I had gone through in filling out the experience section in the application form. I put in even my trip to Tibet many years ago to get myself … [Read more...] about Journey to the centre of Son Doong Cave
Three physicists have been awarded the Nobel Prize for revolutionizing the way the world is lighted. The 2014 physics award went to Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano of Japan and Shuji Nakamura of the University of California, Santa Barbara, for “the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes, which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.” From left, the researchers Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for “the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes, which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.” Photo by AFP. “They succeeded where everyone else had failed,” the academy said. Their work has spurred the creation of a whole new industry. The committee that chose the winners said light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, would be the lighting source of the 21st century, just as the incandescent bulb illuminated the 20th.

by Nguyen Ngoc Tu Unlike others who usually named their children after famous film stars or outstanding singers, Uncle Doi* called his two daughters Nhu** and Y**. Nhu was now ten years old and Y was eight, but people still commented on their names. "Sheer nonsense! What made-up names," one of his neighbours remarked. "What's wrong with them?" he retorted proudly with a broad smile, making his moustache move gently. Glancing at his face, nobody realised that he was blind, for he always had a calm and untroubled air. Every day, he took the four-member clan through Cu Market, across Nhum Bridge, then wandered around the area all day long. Their working day usually started early in the morning and ended late in the evening. Leading the group was Nhu with a loudspeaker in one hand. In the other, she held a rope connected to her father's guitar to control his clumsy movements. Walking by her side was little Y, who sold passers-by lottery tickets to earn money. In wrinkled clothes with … [Read more...] about Everything to his liking?
