Ho Chi Minh City is facing rapid land subsidence, which not only destabilizes the city infrastructure but also increases the risk of flooding, especially in the face of abrupt rainstorms, excessive rainfall and high tide levels.
According to the Department of Industry and Trade of Ho Chi Minh City, since the beginning of this year, total goods retail sales and service revenues were estimated at nearly VND600 trillion, an increase of 12.2 percent over the same period last year while it was 12.5 percent last year.
Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung yesterday worked with domestic information technology (IT) companies of the southern region in Quang Trung Software City (Ho Chi Minh City) to form feasible solutions for the development of ‘Make in Vietnam’ IT staples since these businesses can only answer 30 percent of the market needs.
Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s biggest economic hub, will need about 155,000 workers for the rest of this year, according to a municipal forecast centre on human resources and labour market information.
