VN, US hold second defense policy dialogue

by Anonymous @ Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in the United States

(VNA)The second Vietnam-US defence policy dialogue took place in Washington on Sept. 19 under the co-chair of Vietnamese Deputy Defence Minister Lt. Gen. Nguyen Chi Vinh and US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence Robert Scher.

At the dialogue, the two sides expressed satisfaction at the outcomes of bilateral defence cooperation over the recent past.

Both Vinh and Scher agreed on the need to make the Vietnam-US defence cooperation more practical in the interest of each country and for peace, stability and cooperation in the region and the world.

Lt. Gen. Vinh informed the US side about the results of the 11th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam early this year while the US side announced its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

On this occasion, Lt. Gen. Vinh and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence Robert Scher signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on promoting cooperation between the two defence ministries which focuses on five priority fields in the immediate future.

They include the establishment of a regular high-ranking dialogue mechanism between the US Department of Defence and the Vietnamese Defence Ministry, sea security, search and rescue, studying and exchanging experience in the United Nations peace keeping activities, and humanitarian aid and disaster relief.

Lt. Gen. Vinh and the Vietnamese delegation also met with a number of US congressmen and leaders of the US Departments of States and Defence./.

Vietnam : Bloggers and citizen journalists v. state violence | Reporters without borders

Vietnam : Bloggers and citizen journalists v. state violence | Reporters without borders


RSF

As the media all take their orders from the Communist Party, the only sources of independently-reported information are bloggers and citizen journalists, who are subjected to harsh forms of persecution including violence by plainclothes policemen. To justify jailing them, the Party is increasingly resorting to articles 88, 79, and 258 of the criminal code, under which “anti-state propaganda,” “activities aimed at overthrowing the government” and “abusing the rights to freedom and democracy to threaten the interests of the state” are punishable by long prison terms. In 2016, a five-year jail sentence was passed on Nguyen Huu VInh, a citizen journalist who created a news website called Anh Ba Sam (Side Walk News Agency) in allusion to the official Vietnam News Agency. Many other bloggers, including Tran Thi Nga, Nguyen Van Hoa, and Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, were arrested in the months that followed, turning Vietnam into the world’s second biggest prison for citizen journalists (after China).

Industry and Trade Minister on working trip to US

by nam @ Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in the United States

(VNA) Vietnamese Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang chaired over a conference on investment opportunities in Vietnam on September 15 in Washington.

At the conference, Minister Hoang highlighted Vietnam's policies and priorities to attract foreign investment in energy and finance areas. He also witnessed the signing of minutes of understanding on cooperation between PetroVietnam and McKinsey&Company.

The same day, the Vietnamese minister had a working session with Fred P. Hochberg, Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (US Exim Bank). They discussed ways to enhance cooperation between Vietnam 's Ministry of Industry and Trade and US Exim Bank for bilateral cooperation in industry and trade, thus increasing economic and commercial exchanges between the two countries.

Minister Hoang also toured Honeywell and Tangible companies which operate in aviation and space technology, automation solutions, transport, special materials, and energy and security.

Earlier, on Sept. 13, the minister attended the Joint Transportation and Energy Ministerial Conference held by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in San Francisco.

Addressing the public-private roundtable on developing energy-efficient transport systems for livable low-carbon communities, Minister Hoang said to establish energy efficient, low-carbon transportation systems, Vietnam needs to overcome many challenges such as lacking experiences, proper technologies, expertise and financing. He expressed the hope to cooperate with other APEC member economies in terms of experiences and information exchange, assistance in technology transfer, human resource development, and technical and financial support.

Also at the joint conference, on behalf of the Vietnamese delegation, Permanent Deputy Minister of Transport and Communication Ngo Thinh Duc addressed the public-private roundtable on greening the supply chain, energy-efficient freight transportation. He called upon international investors and organisations to invest in infratructure and to transfer technologies for developing supply chains during socio-economic development in Vietnam.

Following the first-ever joint Transportation and Energy Ministerial Conference hosted by US Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, energy and transportation ministers from 21 Asia-Pacific economies promised to make transportation cleaner and more energy efficient./.
