Inside Vietnam

Doubtful Cures For Ailing Banks: Scandals related to Vietnam Construction Bank (VNCB) and Saigon Joint-stock Commercial Bank (SCB) could be seen as the most devastating ones in Vietnam’s banking history in terms of the loss of money. There are similarities in both cases that point to loopholes in the country’s mechanism to deal with ailing banks.

Dealing With Troubled Banks: In order to rectify credit organizations, it is imperative to take the right remedial measure, no matter how stern it might be, economic expert Nguyen Tri Hieu said in a meeting with The Saigon Times. The views expressed in this article are his own.

A Labor Market Paradox: Even though unemployment is soaring, businesses are having difficulty with hiring to fulfill their year-end production plans.


A Daunting Path Ahead: Manufacturers are prepping for the peak sales season, traditionally a period marked by surging demand. However, even as signs of a nascent recovery emerge, an air of uncertainty lingers, casting shadows over the prospects of the upcoming peak sales season. Manufacturers grapple with the disconcerting possibility that this peak might not be as robust as they had anticipated.

Savings And Stocks: When examining the financial landscape, one can observe the relationship between savings and stocks. On December 11, the VN-Index had a P/E ratio of 13.86.

The P/E ratio lags far behind the attractive returns offered by the savings channel.

He serves as the driving force behind Thao Minh, a venture that harmoniously blends innovation with eco-conscious values.

A Taste Of Tradition: Nestled along the coastal city of Danang is the Nam O fish sauce craft village, a testament to a tradition dating back over 400 years. This village stands as one of the few remaining bastions of traditional fish sauce craftsmanship in Vietnam.


The Enchanting Beauty Of Tia Stream: Tia Stream beckons to travelers seeking an untouched destination to immerse themselves in and appreciate the wonders of nature.

Duck Pancake In Quang Nam Style: Using duck meat as a filling for the Vietnamese pancake is what sets Quang-style duck pancake apart, giving it a distinctive and delightful flavor.
