The culture department in Hanoi is poised to issue two codes of conduct at a time next year, one for local public servants and the other for everyone in the Vietnamese capital. The culture department in Hanoi is poised to issue two codes of conduct at a time next year, one for local public servants and the other for everyone in the Vietnamese capital. The department initiated preparatory work for the sets of rule as early as 2012, but it is not until 2017 will the code of conduct really be released, department head To Van Dong said Friday. Dong said the department had to be cautious in preparing the rules, so it has spent the last five years attentively listening to feedback from the public, the press and researches to ensure the rules will be effectively followed and supervised. The drafts of the codes of conduct were open to public feedback late 2014, but were immediately doubted for their feasibility. The final, carefully revised versions will take effect on January 1, 2017, … [Read more...] about Mind your behavior! Hanoi to issue public code of conduct in 2017
Vattenfall code of conduct
Viet Nam News HÀ NỘI -- Is there a "code of conduct" for Hanoians? The question seems strange to many. "I've never heard of such a thing," said Phạm Văn Thắng, who has lived in Hà Nội for almost 80 years. But Thắng thinks a code of conduct is a good idea for Hanoians. "We often witness bad behaviour - like students fighting, smoking or drinking alcohol and young people elbowing others out when standing in a queue, refusing to give up their seats to senior citizens, children and people with disabilities - so creating a code of conduct (CoC) for Hanoians is necessary to adjust their manners," Thắng said. Nguyễn Khắc Lợi, deputy head of Hà Nội's Department of Culture and Sports, said the Code is a basis for advocacy, guiding and educating people to live and behave in accordance with the norms of society. The department used crowded places - such as residential areas, hospitals, offices, recreation centres and festivals - as arenas to fine-tune the code of conduct. The CoC was … [Read more...] about Why Hanoians need a ’Code of Conduct’
HA NOI — A code of conduct for labour exporting enterprises was jointly issued by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and the Viet Nam Association of Manpower Supply (VAMAS) in Ha Noi yesterday. The code of conduct, which is based on the Vietnamese legal system and international legal regulations on migrant labour, and recommendations by international organisations, provides legal regulations, business standards, job advertising, selection, training, and procedures for labour exports. Other issues mentioned in the code focus on the protection of guest workers, dispute settlement mechanisms, and partnership procedures. It clearly states that guest workers are exempt from paying for return travel fees, unless they are responsible for their removal. The enterprises are responsible for co-ordinating with employers and relevant domestic and foreign agencies for safe, convenient return trips home for guest workers who have finished their working contract, especially … [Read more...] about Code of conduct issued to control labour exports
Insurance providers finally reach a consensus on Code of Conduct (22-04-2005) General Secretary of the Viet Nam Insurance Association Phung Dac Loc spoke with Thoi bao Kinh te Viet Nam (Vietnam Economic Times) about a Code of Conduct among insurance enterprises. It took nearly one year for insurance enterprises to approve their Code of Conduct. Why do you think the approval took so long? The Code of Conduct was compiled and sent to enterprises starting in May of last year, but there was no consensus on the code until now. I think the reason for this slowness was that we needed all the enterprises to agree. Previously, our members contributed their opinions to the revisions in order to reach the final draft. For the first time, a set of principles on conduct for insurance enterprises has been drafted to create a healthy insurance market. Do you believe that this consensus will heal the unhealthy competition on the market? These principles will help limit the unhealthy competition among … [Read more...] about Insurance providers finally reach a consensus on Code of Conduct
VietNamNet presents the following commentary by Aileen S.P. Baviera, a scholar from the School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University. Photo: Xinhua Recent incidents in the South China Sea (or East Sea) point to China’s growing assertiveness and seeming readiness to pressure other countries to recognise its claims. The region urgently needs a Code of Conduct that is specifically designed for the prevention of armed conflict in the disputed areas.In the last several months, a number of incidents occurred that highlight what appears to be growing willingness by China to use its armed strength to pressure and influence rival claimants, particularly the Philippines and Vietnam, in the disputed East Sea. In February, there were reported incidents of Filipino fishermen being threatened and fired on from Chinese vessels. On 2 March 2011, two Chinese patrol boats confronted a Philippine oil exploration vessel MV Veritas Voyager and ordered it to cease activities … [Read more...] about East Sea disputes: Time for Code of Conduct?
