|Vietnam’s growth outlook to depend on authorities’ response to new outbreak: WB||Vietnam’s growth outlook to depend on authorities’ response to new outbreak: WB|
Vietnam’s growth prospects will depend on how well and how quickly the authorities will bring the new coronavirus outbreak under control and how quickly international and national vaccinations will proceed, according to the World Bank (WB).
The fibre production line of the Phu Tho Textile Co. Ltd (Photo: VNA)
In its Vietnam Macro Monitoring report issued earlier this month, the WB said January's industrial production index jumped by 24.5 percent year on year, the highest growth rate since the beginning of 2019. Merchandise exports and imports respectively grew 51.8 percent and 41.8 percent from the same period last year.
The preliminary January goods trade surplus is estimated at 1.1 billion USD. Exports to the US and China continued the robust growth of 2020 while those to the EU, ASEAN, Japan and the Republic of Korea (RoK) bounced back strongly. Similarly, imports from the RoK, ASEAN and the US joined those from China, Japan and the EU to stay in expansionary territory.
In the first month of 2021, the Government spent a total of 99.6 trillion VND, which is slightly, 1 percent, higher than a year ago. Public investment reached 15 trillion VND, making the disbursement rate of 3.25 percent.
However, the WB added, while Vietnam's economy has been extremely resilient to the COVID-19 crisis, preliminary results from the COVID-19 World Bank high frequency household survey of January show that almost half of households still reported lower household income than the year before. About 9 percent of households took loans and 15 percent reduced their consumption.
If persistent, this prudent behaviour will negatively affect aggregate domestic demand in the future, according to the bank.
It held that growth prospects for 2021 will be affected by how well and how quickly the authorities will bring the new outbreak under control and how quickly international and national vaccinations will proceed.
If the crisis lingers, the authorities may consider further monetary and fiscal support. Yet, special attention will have to be given to the fiscal space, the health of the financial sector and possible social effects as lasting loss of income among some households may create new inequalities and tensions, the report noted.
Jacques Morisset, WB Lead Economist for Vietnam, said the WB expects with many positive signs like the considerable progress in vaccine development and gradually resumed trading activities, the country can obtain growth of 6 percent in 2021./.

Specifically, the total basic construction capital as planned in Long An province in 2019 is VND 4,246 billion. In which, the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion and the basic construction capital allocated to the districts is nearly VND 1,295 billion.
Provincial Road (PR) 826B (in Can Duoc district) - one of the works in "the Program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" in the province
Long An Department of Planning and Investment informed that basic construction investment in the province has been implemented as planned from the beginning of the year until now. Accordingly, "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress (term 2015-2020) continue to be focused, urgently implemented and disbursed its capital as planned from the beginning of the year.
Accordingly, the total basic construction capital as planned in 2019 in the province is 4,246 billion VND. In which, the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion and the basic construction capital allocated and managed by the districts is nearly VND 1,295 billion.
For the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion, the value of the volume implemented about VND 1,325 billion in the first 5 months of 2019, reaching 44.9 percent of the plan, equaling 118 percent in value and equal to 91.2 percent of the rate over the same period. The disbursement value for 5 months is about VND 1,275 billion, reaching 43.2 percent of the plan, 116 percent in value and 89.5 percent of the rate in comparison with the same period.
The provincial basic construction capital allocated and managed by districts is VND 1,294 billion, by the end of May 2019, the value of volume for implementation and disbursement is about VND 361 billion, reaching 27.9 percent of the plan.
According to the assessment, although the provincial leaders directed as well as the investors urged and disbursed the capital from the beginning of the year, the volume of implementation and disbursement of some projects is slow compared to the plan. The reason is that the National Target Program is allocated in the middle of March 2019, so investors have not implemented and disbursed yet. In addition, new construction projects in 2019 started to apply online bidding, so investors were embarrassed in the early months of the year. However, most of the works have completed the bidding work until now and prepared to start construction in June 2019.
Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can directs the task-assigned departments to focus on "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve industrial development in key economic regions" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress, term 2015 - 2020.

|One commune one product program: Towards building sustainable new-style rural||One commune one product program: Towards building sustainable new-style rural|
One commune one product program (referred to as OCOP program) was born. It is very important to the process of building a new-style rural. Through this program, it will contribute to restructuring the rural economy, increasing added value and aiming for a sustainable commercial enterprise.
Safe vegetables of Muoi Hai Safe Vegetables Cooperative have been selected to develop the OCOP products
Developing key products of each locality
Tan Binh Commune, Tan Tru District, Long An Province is not only famous for historical and cultural relics but also recently for its products made from moringa, a rich and nutritious plant for health. According to the Director of Vuon Nha Minh Company Limited - Pham Ngoc Anh Tuan, currently, on average, the company produces about 500 kilos of moringa powder each month, creating stable jobs for some local people with an income from 6-7 million VND per person per month. In order to meet the needs of the market, he is mobilizing local people to expand the production scale of moringa to create raw material areas for the company. Up to now, Vuon Nha Minh branded products have been gradually standing firmly on the market, present in most supermarkets in major cities in the country.
Mr. Tuan said: "In addition to products such as moringa tea, moringa oil or moringa powder, the company also coordinates a number of food processing companies to create new products such as moringa porridge, moringa instant noodles, and so on to diversify the company's products. Currently, the company completes the procedures to review and recognize OCOP for the products. It is believed that products will be recognized and consumers will increasingly believe in using them in the near future".
Moringa products of Vuon Nha Minh One Member Co., Ltd. are increasingly welcomed by consumers
In March, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) held a meeting to evaluate and rate OCOP products and submit to the Provincial People's Committee for recognition of 3 3-star products of Thanh Hoa district, including Khap Phuong lime wine, Quang Vinh cajeput flower honey and Quang Vinh longan honey. In recent years, lemons are considered a fast growing crop and bring high economic efficiency to Thanh Hoa district. However, the output problem is the concern of the lemon grower and the local Agriculture sector. Stemming from that situation, the Director of Thuan Binh Agricultural Service Cooperative (Thuan Binh commune, Thanh Hoa district) - Bui Van Khap and his wife - Le Thi Phuong have researched and created the products of lemon wine which are both economical and productive for local lemons.
Mr. Bui Van Khap shared: "The cooperative currently grows 40 hectares of seedless lemons, certified for GlobalGAP standards and has a purchase contract from an enterprise to export to the European market. However, the production process inevitably states that lemons have unqualified designs for export such as lemon skin color irregular, lemons bigger than specifications, etc. For lemons with unqualified designs, Cooperatives sold outside at low prices. Because of this fact, my wife and I think about making lemon wine products to take advantage of products that do not meet export standards. Currently, lemon wine products are consumed through retail agents in the province. In the coming time, I will bring lemon wine to trade fairs and exhibitions inside and outside the province to find customers and build a more sustainable output".
Lemon wine product from Khap Phuong (Thuan Binh - Thanh Hoa)
Head of the Thanh Hoa District DARD - Nguyen Kinh Kha informed that the district chose the Khap Phuong lemon wine, the melaleuca honey and longan honey from Quang Vinh establishment to suport and develop in the OCOP program in order to exploit well the potentials and advantages of the locality. This program will contribute to supporting branding and branding establishments for products. In the coming time, the district will coordinate with provincial departments and agencies to organize training and guide households to grow lemon and beekeeping to ensure food safety, step by step develop lemon areas and expand beekeeping for honey in the district.
The right direction in branding products
According to the information from the Coordination Office of the provincial new-style rural construction program, the province focuses on production, raising income for people, promoting the OCOP program as an effective solution to develop product groups at the level of commune, district, town and city. At the same time, to step by step bring the trade enterprise movement into depth, efficiency and sustainability.
Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative (Hamlet 4, Long Khe Commune, Can Duoc District) is one of the leading units in implementing the OCOP program with safe vegetable products highly appreciated by consumers. With the desire to develop local vegetables and provide customers with quality vegetable products that are safe for daily meals, Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative constantly applies scientific and technical advances to manufacturing; at the same time, it supports the long-term safe vegetable consumption, creating motivation for local farmers to increase production and increase income.
Kim Hue's grilled pork sausage and spring rolls products are recognized as 3-star OCOP products
Vice Chairman of People's Committee of Long Khe commune - Nguyen Thi Nhi said: "In the commune, there are over 160 hectares of vegetables of all kinds. This is considered a crop that brings high and stable income for the people in the commune. Muoi Hai Safe Vegetable Cooperative's products have been selected to develop and recognize OCOP, contributing to building brand and promoting the development of the local vegetable region. At the same time, this is also a rebound to contribute to helping the locality to reach the destination of the new-style rural commune in 2021".
The provincial OCOP program has been implemented and performed since 2018. This is an effective and practical program for the people, the core content of the program for building new-style rural and advanced new-style rural contributes to the introduction of typical products with potentials and strengths of the province to the consumer market inside and outside the province. The goal of the program is to develop internal resources and increase the value of agricultural, non-agricultural and advantageous services in each locality. This is very important to Long An when the industry, service and trade of the province are still in the development stage, the consumer market is small, many products of good quality but not known by many people. The output is not ensured, the product value is not high.
Deputy Director of the DARD - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh said: With the drastic direction of the Party Committee and authorities and the enthusiasm of organizations and individuals to participate, by the end of 2020, the province has 11 products recognized OCOP by the Provincial People's Committee. In which, Vietnam Cordyceps Cultivation and Processing Company Limited (Thanh Loi Commune, Ben Luc District) has 4 4-star products, including cordyceps nutritional powder, cordyceps herbal tea cordyceps, premium cordyceps Oolong tea, dried cordyceps. White Wine Production and Business Joint Stock Company (Phuoc Loi Commune, Ben Luc District) has 5 4-star products, including Go Den wine 31 percent, Go Den wine 41 percent, Go Den green base wine 31 percent, Go Den base wine 31 percent, Go Den gold wine 41 percent. Kim Hue sausage establishment (Tam Vu town, Chau Thanh district) has 2 3-star products, including Kim Hue pork sausage and Kim Hue pork baked rolls.
In 2021, the DARD continues to coordinate with the Provincial Coordination Office for the new-style rural Construction Program to assess, evaluate and classify OCOP program products according to the criteria such as product and community strength, ability marketing, product quality, etc. After evaluating and classifying products, the province continues to build programs and plans to widely advertise and introduce throughout the country, contributing to improving value for local OCOP products.
"The OCOP program is not only meaningful in production development but also helps the locality to solve important problems in poverty reduction, job recruitment, promoting the creativity and intelligence of the people, building linkages of the sustainable community economy. This is considered the right direction in building product brands, enhancing competitiveness in the market, and most importantly, increasing people's income, actively contributing to implementing the program building for new-style rural commune"- Ms. Khanh added./.

The Government of Vietnam wants the business community to provide feedback and input to help improve the National Public Service Portal, heard a conference held by the Prime Minister’s Council on Administrative Reform and the World Bank in Hanoi on May 19.
A screenshot of the National Public Service Portal (File Photo: VNA)
To cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has been pushing more administrative procedures online, including the use of e-documents and e-reports, and the establishment of information and public service portals on local levels said Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung.
The Government's Decision 45/2020/ND-CP also dictated, for the first time, that online procedures be recognized by governmental agencies to reduce red tape, paperwork for businesses and to promote online transactions as well as the digital economy.
"Since its formation, the National Public Service Portal has proven to be an effective tool in the country's scheme to digitalize administrative procedures. In addition, the portal also helps improve the transparency and accountability of local governments," said Dung.
The portal has developed from just eight groups of public services, to provide nearly 400 services with more than half designed to meet the needs of businesses. The portal allows firms to open service tickets with ministries, agencies and local authorities.
Citizens and businesses can track how their applications are being processed and at the same time, the Office of the Government can keep an eye on the proceedings and when required, send feedback and instructions.
Speaking at the conference, the World Bank's Country Director for Vietnam Ousmane Dione said the COVID-19 pandemic had brought unprecedented disruption to social and economic development on a global scale. He called for the Government and business community to work together to fight the crisis.
Along with effective public health measures taken by the Government, the country's swift digitalization of public services was a highlight of its ability to deal with the pandemic.
Dione said the portal was of tremendous value in stopping the spread of the coronavirus and in protecting the health of citizens and public servants.
He called for actions to be taken by the private sector to hasten business digitalization to improve business resilience and ensure operations can run uninterrupted. As made clear by the pandemic, businesses with a high level of digitalization have proven much less likely to be affected while others suffered disastrous consequences or were put out of operations.
In addition, applications of digitalization, e-commerce, big data and Artificial Intelligence may boost productivity and add value for small-to-medium-sized enterprises by up to 26 percent, he said, citing a 2019 study conducted in Singapore. On a regional scale, digitalization has the potential to create 1.1 trillion VND in GDP value for ASEAN economies by 2025.
Dione also called for the Government to continue with administrative reforms to cut costs and time for businesses. To this end, data gathered by the portal may provide an excellent starting point for the Government to identify time-wasting procedures and bottlenecks in the system.
The national public service portal debuted on December 9, 2019, and has logged more than 140,000 registered accounts, 35 million visits, 7.3 million documents and processed more than 68,000 documents.
It is estimated as much as 6.49 trillion VND (280 million USD) has been saved thanks to online public services a year, which includes 3.036 trillion VND from the portal.
According to the report of the Government Office, after six months in operation, the portal has supplied 389 online public services (160 for people and 229 for enterprises) in sales promotion, electricity supply, payment of taxes, charges and fees, electronic tax declaration and payment and tax extension request.
Starting from May 12, the portal has started additional services to support citizens and businesses affected by COVID-19 including workers who have lost their jobs or had their salaries suspended, employers who have borrowed to compensate laid-off workers, applications to delay payments of personal and business income./.
