VietNamNet Bridge - To be able to take full advantage of the opportunities in the digital economy, Vietnam needs a reasonable long-term development strategy for the electronics & IC industry. Many East Asian nations followed this path to become ‘tigers’. China, South Korea and China are the best-known success stories. Experts point out that Vietnamese enterprises have not made huge investments in R&D, and do not own core technologies, which has made it difficult for them to reduce production costs and become more competitive. But while Taiwanese enterprises have become giants, Viettronics is still struggling to survive. RELATED NEWS VN electronics industry growing What is the status of Vietnam’s electronics firms?

Tomaso Andreatta, co-chairman, Vietnam Business Forum Today we are witnessing the great success of Vietnam in welcoming an ever-accelerating flow of foreign investment into the country. Thanks to this, Vietnam has caught up with other large ASEAN partners as a major exporter to the whole world and GDP has grown through foreign investments, technology and know-how, the salaries paid to the Vietnamese employees, taxes, and all the local products and services acquired by foreign-invested enterprises. In part to support their companies investing in Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, and other countries have extended ODA to build infrastructure beyond the usual level.

One morning in April, an organ donor was brought into an operating room in Hanoi, all alone. Not long after, the recipient was brought in, with a whole family waiting outside, and a man in suit. By the afternoon, the kidney had been successfully transfered from the donor to the recipient. The man in the suit received a load of cash from the recipient’s family, and off he went. For doctors and nurses, the long hours just meant another to hundreds of operations they perform, but for the poor family waiting outside, they had just spent every penny they had on a kidney for their son. The son, Binh*, is a 24-year-old engineer. On the verge of losing a bright future at such a young age due to chronic kidney disease, Binh made the call himself to buy a healthy kidney from the black market. He wanted to leave the chapter of hemodialysis behind. Days of needles For the past five months, Binh had been on hemodialysis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Two large needles were laid out … [Read more...] about For kidney patients in Vietnam, it is either hemodialysis or organ black market
Seventeen years earlier, Johnson’s father died in a helicopter crash on a similar mission to find some of the 1,600 U.S. servicemen and women killed in the Vietnam War whose bodies have still not been located. “The last time (my mother) had a family member here, he didn’t come back, so she was kind of nervous,” said 26-year-old Johnson, a radio frequency transmission systems technician stationed in Japan with the U.S. Air Force. In an unlikely twist of fate, Johnson was assigned to help recover the remains of a Marine pilot whose plane crashed during a night mission in central Quang Ngai province in 1966. She spent weeks scouring the forest for bone shards or tooth fragments, learning a few words of Vietnamese, the same work her father, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Tommy Murphy, did before he died in 2001. He was among seven Americans and nine Vietnamese killed when their helicopter slammed into the side of a mountain in bad weather. Johnson said her trip was … [Read more...] about Time now the enemy in battle to find missing GIs in jungles of Vietnam
