Vietnamese travel firms offer Covid vaccination tours to US
Vietnam travel agencies are launching "vaccine tours" to the U.S. to boost a hobbled tourism industry, with some states allowing foreigners to receive Covid-19 jabs. Hong Ngoc Ha Travel Company, headquartered in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), became the first Vietnamese travel agency to launch a vaccine tour aimed at high-income tourists and those wishing to pay short-term visit or visit relatives, as well as access vaccines from the U.S. The tour is advertised at a cost of nearly VND45 million ($1,950) for an eight-day trip, including one-way air ticket from HCMC to American cities like New York or Los Angeles, three-star standard hotel room and a single dose of Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, Le Van Tri, head of the company's media department said.

HCMC aims to achieve disbursement rate of public investment at above 90 percent

According to Ms. Le Thi Huynh Mai, Director of the Department of Planning and Investment, Ho Chi Minh City plans to achieve a disbursement rate of public investment of above 90 percent this year. The complicated situation of the Covid-19 pandemic has directly created difficulties affecting the disbursement progress of projects, especially for ODA projects because foreign experts, equipment, and machinery that serve projects cannot be imported into Vietnam; the project implementation progress is delayed because workers implement social distancing; difficulties lead to many disputes related to contracts, affecting the construction, acceptance, and disbursement. HCMC will drastically carry out solutions to accelerate the disbursement of public investment capital plans to stimulate production, business, and consumption, create jobs, and ensure social security, contributing to the construction and completion of the necessary socio-economic infrastructure to improve competitiveness, support production and business activities of people and enterprises, and attract other sources of social investment capital. 

Industrial parks try to keep factories open amid COVID-19 outbreak

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam yesterday asked authorities in Bac Ninh and Bac Giang provinces to continue closely monitoring COVID-19 hotspots and bring companies with large supply chains back into operation. The request was made at a meeting of the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control. “Bac Giang Province must strictly manage workers in industrial zones to ensure the virus will not spread to other provinces,” he said. “At the same time the two provinces need to quickly bring businesses that meet safety requirements back into operation, especially those with large supply chains.

According to the latest updated global remittance data that the World Bank (WB) has just announced, the amount of overseas remittances to Vietnam in 2020 was US$17.2 billion, instead of $15.7 billion as previously estimated. Thus, according to the updated figures, the number of overseas remittances in 2020 increased by nearly 3 percent compared to that in 2019. Accordingly, Vietnam is in the top ten countries receiving the most overseas remittances among low and middle-income countries. With overseas remittances transferred to the country equivalent to 5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2020, Vietnam is one of the 10 countries in East Asia – Pacific with the highest proportion of remittances in GDP.

Foreign enterprises place trust, raise investment in Dong Nai
The trust of investors in the local business climate and support from authorities for enterprises count among the factors that have helped southern Dong Nai province almost reach its foreign direct investment (FDI) target for the year. The Swiss-funded Nestle Vietnam, based at the Bien Hoa 2 Industrial Park, has continually increased its charter capital since opening its first factory on-site in 1995. Most recently, in April, it added US$132 million to its investment in a coffee production project at the Amata Industrial Park in Dong Nai, bringing the total to over US$400 million.
