What do you think about recent rumors that foreign groups intend to shift their production out of Ho Chi Minh City to other countries due to the impact of Covid-19? The rumors are true and justified, but to see whether the relocation would actually happen, we will have to wait for around six months as it depends on how the Covid-19 situation in Vietnam will turn out.

It doesn’t matter who you are – a man, a child, or a grandparent – it’s the woman you look to for comfort, understanding, and so much more that’s unnamed, unacknowledged, and undeniable.

On this day, October 20, Vietnam salutes, celebrates, and honors the role of women in this society. It’s a pretty cool day in my opinion, with lots of gifts, smiles, hugs, and special events for the females that make humanity survive no matter how hard it gets out there in the world. And there’s no denying that it’s been a tough year for everyone, particularly Vietnamese women as they’ve had to grapple with COVID-19 issues, struggling to … [Read more...] about Thank you, the women of Vietnam!
At a time when large cities are gradually resuming social and economic activities, foreigners are cautiously getting back to their daily routines. Charlotte Brown, an Australian living in District 1, HCMC, says she went out walking and shopping and caught up with her friends after months of lockdowns. She visited various places around the city without any fear of being infected since everyone around her was wearing masks. Also, security guards at places where she showed up systematically checked people’s temperature and scanned QR codes at the entrance. To protect herself, Brown wears a mask and sanitizes her hands religiously. "I am ready to live with the pandemic and do not want it to control my life." Indian man Radhakrishnan MB, also of HCMC, has been as excited as his employees to return to office.
