A typical day at the MINUSCA Every day, the clock alarm goes off at 5:30 when it is still dark outside. Today, Major Dinh Duc Long is “on lodging duty”, which means he is to cook breakfast, prepare lunch boxes for others in the lodge to carry to work. At 7:20, after breakfast, everyone takes their backpacks and lunch boxes and walks to work. Walking from home to the mission’s HQs may be one of their most interesting periods of time of the day. A long the way, all local people they meet greet them. The children not only greet, but also run up to them to shake hands. Welcoming them at the gate of the UN mission are the greetings in the Sango language of the guards. They happily greet, “Good morning the Vietnamese people!” Buying stuff in preparation for the special day There are three Vietnamese officers working in Bangui (the capital city of the Central African Republic).

Further Integrating Vietnam Into The Global EconomyBy Robert Greenhill,Margareta Drzeniek Hanouz& Thierry Geiger (*)A year ago, when the world was in the midst of the worst global crisis in decades, there was a significant fear that the situation would lead to a protectionist backlash and put globalization at risk. Since global trade volumes started to recover towards the end of 2009, it became clear that the protectionist fears have not materialized. On the contrary, there is evidence that trade has been further liberalized over the past few years. Average tariff barriers declined slightly between 2008 and 2009, in particular on agricultural products. Now, as trade flows begin to recover and economies move back to growth, the global economic landscape appears more integrated than before.What do these recent developments mean for Vietnam? Two reports on trade recently released by the World Economic Forum provide indications about Vietnam’s performance in terms of enabling … [Read more...] about Further Integrating Vietnam Into The Global Economy
