Check out the news you should not miss today in Vietnam:

Society

-- A delivery man in Quang Ngai Province, central Vietnam was hospitalized on Friday for treatment for two broken arms as he had been earlier attacked by a couple with an iron tube, a flower pot, and a chair after having asked them to pay delivery costs.

-- Work started on Saturday on a project to upgrade the 30.5-kilometer navigation channel leading to the Cap Mep - Thi Vai port complex in Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province, southern Vietnam. This is the largest project of the local navigation sector this year with an estimated investment of over VND1.4 trillion (US$58.8 million).

-- A female driver was fined VND3.4 million ($143) and had her driver's license revoked for two months on Saturday for taking her hands off the steering wheel of her car to use her mobile phone while traveling on a street in Hung Yen Province, northern Vietnam. The girl also asked her friend who sat next to her to record her act for uploading to TikTok.

-- The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has requested the People’s Committees of Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Vinh Long, An Giang, Tien Giang, and Dong Thap to help with the supply of building materials for the Ring Road No. 3 project, which connects the metropolis with its neighbors—Binh Duong, Dong Nai, and Long An.

-- The Ministry of Transport has asked the My Thuan project management board to clarify the responsibilities of relevant individuals and units making the pre-feasibility and feasibility reports for the Rach Mieu 2 bridge project, which was designed to span over the Tien River and link the Mekong Delta provinces of Ben Tre and Tien Giang, causing cost overruns of nearly VND1.2 trillion ($50.4 million).

-- The Vietnamese Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism has written to the Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism proposing China add Vietnam to the group of countries where China is resuming outbound tours to. China earlier announced a list of 20 countries where its tour agencies are allowed to take travelers to, with Vietnam excluded.

Business
