Goods containers are loaded at the Port of Tokyo, Japan (Photo: AFP/VNA) Singapore (VNA) – Foreign ministers of ASEAN countries and three partner nations - China, the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Japan (ASEAN+3) - met in Singapore on August 4, agreeing on the need for ASEAN+3 to continue contributing to economic connectivity and opening trend in the region. At the 19th ASEAN Plus Three Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, the diplomats also reached high consensus on the necessity to finalise the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement as schedule. The ministers of China, Japan and the RoK emphasised the ASEAN+3’s role in promoting free trade, particularly in the context of growing trade protectionism around the world. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said with the emergence of protectionism, the ASEAN+3 cooperation has changed and clearly reflected the regional countries’ aspiration and resolve to promote free trade and maintain … [Read more...] about ASEAN+3 to contribute more to regional economic connectivity
Viet Nam News By Robert Bicknell Haizzzz… here we go again. Apparently, the USGA has decided to officially continue their investigation re: the golf ball goes too far. The study, known as the “Distance Insights Research Project”, will initially involve 21 industry stakeholders (architects, superintendents, golf course operators, tour players, and recreational players among them). It’s true that Tour players have been driving the ball around nine yards further than five years ago, but is this the ball or a combination of other factors? In my opinion, the players today are bigger and in better physical condition. This is why they can generate much more clubhead speed. In a recent article, Dustin Johnson said that he didn’t feel he hits the ball too far. Well, no surprise there, but to be honest, he really doesn’t. Sure, when he really gets a hold of one people gasp in amazement, but that’s an exception and usually downwind. His … [Read more...] about “It’s not distance, but direction that’s important”
EVNGenco 2 to be “make up” before IPO to lure investors Fluctuating profit Not unlike EVNGenco 3, whose IPO was a massive failure (it only sold 7.4 million of the 267 million shares launched), EVNGenco 2 operates in the state-owned sector with great development potential. Alongside subsidiaries fully owned by EVN and accounting units that are dependent on the parent company (Can Tho Thermal Power Company, Quang Tri Hydroelectricity Company, Song Bung Hydroelectricity Company), EVNGenco 2 owns 50 per cent of the charter capital of companies like Haiphong Thermal Power Company, Pha Lai Thermal Power Company, and Thac Mo Hydroelectricity Company. In addition, EVNGenco 2 is in charge of many energy investment projects, including Hai Phong Thermal Power II, O Mon Thermal Power 1, 2, 3, 4, Trung Son Hydroelectricity, and Expanded Thac Mo Hydroelectricity, among others. Although EVNGenco 2 generates increasing revenue, its profit has steadily decreased between 2014 and 2017. … [Read more...] about EVNGenco 2 to be effectively improved before IPO?
Viet Nam News By Robert Bicknell The game of golf is all about calculating the odds. It begins in the clubhouse when negotiating how many strokes to give your opponents. Believe it or not, most bets are won or lost before you even get outside to hit your first shot. In a pretty even match, you can figure on winning six holes and your opponent winning six holes. It’s the remaining six that you will be fighting over. In the old days, when I could actually play the game (as opposed to now as I’m old and suck) I knew that, due to my length, I would take the par 5’s and some long par 4’s. So there are my six. My opponent would probably take the par 3’s and some very short par 4’s. That makes up his six. The rest had to be fought over carefully. There would be holes where my length would be an advantage and, of course, those which it would be a disadvantage. This is where knowing yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, makes the difference … [Read more...] about Benefits of age and wisdom
