-- Two Vietnamese coast guard ships left the northern port city of Hai Phong on Sunday, beginning a patrol to examine the enforcement of a Vietnam-China agreement on fishery cooperation in the Gulf of Tonkin. The trip will include an exchange program on Vietnam’s Con Co Island and activities to increase fishermen’s awareness of the agreement.


-- No Vietnamese citizens have been reported among the victims of bomb attacks in Sri Lanka on Sunday, according to the Vietnam Embassy in the South Asian country. The explosions that ripped through churches and hotels on the Indian Ocean island killed more than 200 people, including over 30 foreigners, and injured at least 450.

-- A draft of Vietnam’s revised law on public officials, recently submitted by the Vietnamese government to the lawmaking National Assembly for feedback, is looking to prevent government officials from remaining on the public payroll for their lifetime despite not fulfilling their duties.

-- Ho Chi Minh City has since April launched a campaign to tighten control over sales of prescription drugs at local pharmacies to squash the ‘epidemic’ of self-medication among the public, especially concerning the widespread non-prescribed use of antibiotics.

-- Over 39,000 automobiles, worth US$883 million, were imported into Vietnam in the first three months of 2019.
