The first HCMC Friendship Dialogue (FD HCMC), themed “Resilience Adaptation for Recovery and Development”, was held on December 3 with the participation of over 20 foreign delegations from localities worldwide.
Many localities including the Southern Province of Binh Duong, the Central Highlands Province of Kon Tum, and the Central Province of Thua Thien – Hue succeeded in attracting a big sum of foreign direct investment.
The number of visitors slightly increased in entertainment areas, airports, and bus stations while security and public order have been maintained on the first two days of the national holidays on September 1-2.
After months in lockdown, several provinces and cities across the country have started to welcome back tourists under strict safety guidelines, showing positive sign of tourism recovery in the last months of this year.
Although 48 localities across the country have agreed to re-operate trans-provincial passenger transport, they have still seen a small number of vehicles in operation, according to the Directorate for Roads of Vietnam on October 20.
Travelling between localities has not been clearly yet despite of the Government’s resolution No. 128/NQ-CP on the Interim Regulation on safe and flexible adaptation and effective control over the Covid-19 pandemic, and the health ministry’s new criteria on controlling the disease, including testing for Covid-19 that is no longer required.
The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) has issued a document on implementing child care, education and protection in 2021, requesting localities to raise responsibilities and take more comprehensive and drastic measures to protect children.
