Have a nice Sunday!

Politics

-- Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Saturday commenced his official visit to Japan at the invitation of his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe, after meeting with several foreign leaders on the sidelines of the Group of Seven (G7) Outreach Meeting in Mie Prefecture a day earlier. The two leaders agreed on measures to further develop the two nations’ strategic ties.

Society

-- Five Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters nabbed two second prizes and one consolation prize for their articles and television program highlighting Vietnam’s relations with other countries at an award presentation ceremony on Saturday.

-- A resident living near Vinh International Airport in the north-central province of Nghe An has reported that around 200 of his roof tiles fell off on Friday noon shortly after he heard an airplane landing at the airport. The Northern Airports Authority are looking into the incident.

-- Police in the outlying district of Hoc Mon in Ho Chi Minh City confirmed on Saturday that they are investigating a theft occurring  at the home of a newly re-elected municipal Council deputy in which valuables worth a total of nearly VND2 billion (US$88,362) had been stolen.  

Business

-- Competent agencies in the central city of Da Nang have adopted different measures, including stationing staff 24/7 at a local fishing port to confirm that seafood caught in Vietnam’s Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) fishing grounds are safe and purchasing their catches, in a bid to assist local fishermen whose business remains hurt by the near-shore fish deaths over a month ago.  

-- A group of Japanese reporters joining a recent survey field trip to Da Nang City have marveled at the gorgeous cityscape and appreciated the city’s tourism potentials while warning that the local authorities better control service rates to boost competitiveness.

-- A direct two-way air route between Da Nang City and Japan’s Osaka City will be launched on August 1 this year, according to Mai Dang Hieu, deputy director of the municipal foreign affairs department, while Japanese visitors to Da Nang will also be waived visa requirements. It is expected to create a better environment for boosting tourism, trade and investment between the two countries.

-- A recent surge in Chinese tourist arrivals has begun to worry authorities in Nha Trang, the capital of the south-central province of Khanh Hoa known globally for its beautiful beaches and islands, for its potential adverse impact on the sector’s market diversity. The city has received 175,000 Chinese visits within only the first five months of this year, which is equal to that of the entire 2015, according to the provincial tourism department.

Lifestyle

-- Several local celebrities called on people to say no to smoking, particularly in public places, at an event organized in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday to celebrate the World No Tobacco Day 2016 (May 31) and a National No Smoking Week.
