The book is the first work by a Vietnamese author released by U.S.-based publishing house ForbesBooks. Titled “Competing with Giants,” the book tells the story of Tan Hiep Phat (THP), a Vietnamese firm established during the difficult times that followed the Vietnam War, and its experience in competing with multinational giants. The book is also a research work on the business environment in Vietnam as it transited to a market economy in the late 1980s. One of the highlights of the book is how THP rejected Coca Cola’s offer to buy a majority of its shares for $2.5 billion. THP went on to increase its shares in the soft drink industry by focusing on bottled herbal tea and directly competed with foreign behemoths like Coca Cola, Suntory PepsiCo and URC. Tran Uyen Phuong, co-author of the book, was well placed to get inside information as the daughter of THP chairman Tran Qui Thanh.

U.S. news network CNBC reported on May 2, 2018 that China had installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three of its outposts in the Spratlys, namely Fiery Cross Reef, Subi Reef and Mischief Reef. The report substantiates the concern among regional observers that China may soon start a new round of escalation in the South China Sea after a relatively calm period. Since the release of the arbitral tribunal ruling on the Philippines vs. China case in July 2016 until early this year, China kept a low profile on the South China Sea issue by quietly completing its seven artificial islands in the Spratlys and refraining from major assertive actions. Beijing even showed good will and made efforts to accelerate discussions with ASEAN on a Code of Conduct for the sea. China’s wish to counter adverse ramifications generated by the 2016 ruling as well as its emphasis on the successful organization of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) 19th congress … [Read more...] about Vietnam facing China’s renewed assertiveness in South China Sea
