Businesses in the field of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) have been the pioneers in transiting to a circular economy model. Enterprises need to build a roadmap for circular strategy from a senior management perspective, following steps such as improvement in the production process, product and business model, Brendan Edgerton, Director of Circular Economy under the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) recommended. An overview of the workshop. Photo: VCCI Speaking at the circular economy-related workshop on October 14, Edgerton said about 8.6% of production volume in the world has been made following the circular model. If the enterprise lacks close supervision of this roadmap, the number of resources consumed by 2060 is estimated to double that of 2015. The circular economy is a model of using limited resources of water, energy, raw materials, and food towards efficiency, and higher value than the linear economy. Sharing his views at … [Read more...] about Foreign manufacturers boost circular economy in Vietnam
Trampling and ignoring international law, China has brazenly announced the establishment of two administrative districts in Vietnam's Paracel and Spratly islands in the East Sea, and formally named 80 geographical features there. Once again, China proves itself a stubborn and incorrigible troublemaker in the East Sea (internationally known as the South China Sea). It is China's typical tactic to capitalize on the world being distracted by the pandemic to pursue its dark pretension and carry out activities of intentionally violating Vietnam's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the East Sea, posing threats and dangers for peace, security and stability in the region.
