VietNamNet Bridge - Tran Trong Kien, CEO of Thien Minh Group, believes the aviation market is still large enough for new air carriers. How many airlines should Vietnam have? The number of airlines in Vietnam is less than one-third of Thailand, which has 13 regular airlines and 10 chartered flight service providers. Kien proposed that the watchdog agency license more air carriers to satisfy the high demand for air transport. The Vietnamese aviation market is exploited by 68 foreign airlines from 25 countries and territories, and five Vietnamese airlines, namely Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air, Jetstar Pacific, Vasco and Bamboo Airways.

Emotional Mahrez seals points for Man City at TottenhamThe Saigon Times Daily Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez shoots at goal at Wembley Stadium, London, Britain October 29, 2018 – PHOTO: REUTERS LONDON (REUTERS) - Manchester City returned to the Premier League summit on goal difference as they dug out a 1-0 victory over fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur courtesy of an early goal by Riyad Mahrez at a subdued Wembley Stadium on Monday. It was not the free-flowing City of late and Tottenham will rue missing some good chances to salvage something from a disjointed affair on a patchwork pitch at a half-empty Wembley. Mahrez caught Tottenham cold in the sixth minute after a defensive mistake but despite City’s dominance they were missing their clinical edge on a surface that looked more suitable for American football after an NFL fixture a day earlier. David Silva and Mahrez both could have put the game beyond Tottenham but the hosts, who were on a four-match winning run in … [Read more...] about Emotional Mahrez seals points for Man City at Tottenham

Southern provincial authorities should be more committed to work with HCM City to expand trade and export of Vietnamese products, the head of the city’s Investment and Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC) said on Friday. Pham Thiet Hoa, director of the centre, was speaking at a meeting with representatives from investment and promotion centres in several southern provinces about measures to help local companies enter foreign markets. HCM City has signed cooperation agreements with around 40 cities and provinces countrywide with an aim to diversify products in the city’s market and help bring investors to provinces.
