VietNamNet Bridge – The opportunity to develop the wind power industry in Vietnam has never been clearer than now. But without the right policy and implementation, the potential is just potential and the "golden opportunity" will pass. Initial lessons learned from the first wind power projects in Vietnam are very useful.

Thailand's army chief prime minister, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, hands over command of the army this week to a trusted ally and steps into civilian politics as head of a government likely to soon face pressure to turn around a sputtering economy. Prayuth, 60, who led a coup in May, presided over a lavish military parade on Monday marking his retirement as commander in chief of the Royal Thai Army. Prime Minister Prayuth will remain leader of the junta, the National Council for Peace and Order, and the military's grip on power will remain rigid. Prayuth's replacement as army chief, General Udomdej Sitabutr, is a close confidante and his appointment signals the dominance of an army faction that both he and Prayuth belong to known as the "Eastern Tigers" - a clique of arch-royalists known for their animosity toward former premier Thaksin Shinawatra. Nevertheless, Prayuth's mandatory retirement raises the possibility that his influence could begin to ebb, especially if he ever fails to see … [Read more...] about Parade marks Thai PM’s transition to civilian, army keeps grip on power
