Privacy becomes “more expensive” than ever before By Dr. Thai Thi Tuyet Dung(*) The right to privacy in Vietnam has changed considerably. The 2013 Constitution rules that “everybody is entitled to imprescriptible right to personal life.” - PHOTO: UYEN VIEN In this era of booming information technology, infringements of privacy and personal data on social media have continuously increased in frequency. Easy access to the Internet plus the widespread popularity of cheap electronic gadgets capable of filming, photographing and recording is fertile ground for other people to monitor and interfere in others’ life without the latter’s consent.

Monetary policies: highlights of early 2021 By Pham Minh Consistently low interbank interest rates since the start of 2020 (except on a few days, when an unexpected drop in liquidity pushes up interest rates) have enabled banks to keep deposit and lending interest rates manageable to boost production and investment - PHOTO: TRAN NGOC LINH The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) has loosened monetary policies since the start of this year to fuel growth as macroeconomic fundamentals remain favorable.
