The Potential in Vietnamese Dong Investment
 
03:20
Over 20 years, Vietnam has transformed remarkably. Despite being the dumping ground for dollar inflation and consistent devaluation of its own currency, the country has developed into an attractive investment opportunity because of its revolutionary economic reforms. By using the Confucian style tactic of economic warfare, Vietnam turned the economic policies deployed against it into the greater opportunities of economic development. Let’s have a look at how the devaluation of dong occurred and the potentials of its revaluation in coming years. Devaluation of the Dong After the American war of aggression, Vietnam faced trade embargo from the United States, which prevented the country from a reconstruction boom after the hostilities ended. What made it worse was when the U.S. put a ban on imports to Vietnam through economic sanctions which created a shortage of foreign capital required for reconstruction process, thus causing further economic deterioration. Moreover, the sanctions reduced the employment rate due to reduced industrial capacity. Additionally, a similar ban on exports limited Vietnam’s access to foreign capital markets, which could raise funds for industrial and macroeconomic infrastructure otherwise. Since exports to communist countries were considered a violation of the U.S. strategic interests, the embargo also blocked financial assistance from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). During this period, Vietnam started to export its cheap labor and natural resources to a handful of countries that stood against the U.S. embargo. Due to the low exchange rate, some countries couldn’t resist the lure of business opportunities in Vietnam and began investing its imports and exports. Just then, the United States used its power and influence within IMF to devalue dong even further while lifting the sanctions. The intent of this move was to keep the value of dong low, encouraging the use of the U.S. dollar rather than Vietnamese dong in the local market. Revaluation of Dong The dong has been pegged to the U.S. dollar for nearly 4 decades to facilitate the dumping of dollar inflation. Due to this reason, the dollar has been predominantly used by Vietnamese financial institutions, which prevented the dong from gaining its original value. However, this is going to change soon as the Vietnamese Business Forum has been exploring ways to stabilize the Vietnamese dong. The Macroeconomic Policy Working Group (MAG) has recently put forward suggestions to introduce a new foreign exchange policy which allows the revaluation of the dong in correlation with multiple foreign currencies. The foreign exchange reforms will not only stabilize the exchange rate, but will also bring a dramatic adjustment to the foreign currency markets. Besides, the World Bank is openly supporting the Vietnam’s policy group which further reinforces the revaluation of the Vietnamese dong. Those who are anticipating profits from investing in dong are likely to see an upside in coming years. If you haven’t invested in dong yet, get the best deals of dong from us today!

Key? Investment in Bank in Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia
 
02:07
The article about key facts about "Investment in Bank in Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia" can be found here: http://www.grandwaktu.com Vietnam is doing more to attract foreign investors to its troubled banking sector. The State Bank of Vietnam, the country's central bank, is preparing a draft regulation that aims to attract more foreign investment into local banks, according to a document posted on its website early this week. The central bank said it wants to boost the domestic banking sector by allowing more foreign investors to expand their ownership in local banks. "In special cases, the prime minister can let foreign investors own more than a 30% stake in a local bank, but that is in the process of being changed," said the document. The central bank didn't say when the regulation will take effect. As Deal Journal previously reported, Japanese banks have been among the most active -- or the only active -- foreign investors into Vietnam's banks, even as the sector is plagued by slowing macroeconomic growth and mounting bad loans. In recent years, Japanese firms have stepped up investments in Vietnam as they seek more affordable alternatives to China, and Japanese banks usually follow Japanese corporates into markets to provide loans to them. Also, loan growth in Asia's emerging markets provide much higher growth rates than in Japan. Currently, Vietnam limits ownership for an individual foreign investor in a local bank at 5%, while a foreign institution can own up to 15%. Foreign investors are allowed to hold a total of up to 20% in a local bank, except in special cases. Total foreign ownership in a local bank can be as high as 30% if the prime minister endorses the investments. The banking sector's bad debts totaled 8.8% at the end of 2012, up from around 6% at end-2011, the central bank said.

Former chairman of top Vietnam bank arrested as corruption crackdown widens
 
03:32
The Ministry of Public Security pressed charges against Ha, former chairman of Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV), with violating banking regulations, on Thursday. Three other senior officials - Tran Luc Lang, former deputy general director at BIDV, Kieu Dinh Hoa, former director of BIDV branch in Ha Tinh Province in north central Vietnam and Le Thi Van Anh, former head of the customer service department at the branch, also face the same carges. Lang and Hoa are also in custody. Ha was investigated for his responsibility in "very serious" violations committed at state-owned BIDV, Vietnam's second largest listed bank. In its report in June, the Central Inspection Committee, the top watchdog of Vietnam's Communist Party, concluded that Ha had violated the democratic centralism principle and working regulations, was guilty of mismanagement, as well as violations of the duties and responsibilities of his position. Ha also violated credit procedures and regulations in approving a number of loans, investments and debt management decisions. In particular, he enabled 12 companies owned by Pham Cong Danh, former chairman of VNCB, to borrow VND4.7 trillion ($206 million) from BIDV. While BIDV eventually managed to retrieve this money, the loans had helped Danh steal over VND9 trillion from VNCB. At a trial in 2016, Danh was sentenced to 30 years in prison, the maximum jail term allowed by Vietnam's Penal Code. In addition to holding Ha responsible, inspectors found that the standing committee of BIDV's Party unit for the 2010-2015 and 2015-2020 terms had also violated the democratic centralism principle, showed lack of responsibility, poor leadership and lack of inspection and supervision. These violations in turn enabled multiple systematic violations to occur at BIDV, causing very serious consequences and resulting in many staff members being criminally prosecuted, negatively affecting the lives of all BIDV employees, the inspectors said. Ha was expelled from the Party in June. Ha, 61, worked at BIDV for 35 years before retiring in September 2016. During the trial that opened in January regarding violations committed by Danh and Tram Be, a former deputy chairman of Sacombank who also let Danh borrow money from his bank, Ha was summoned as a witness and a person with related interests and obligations. However Ha did not attend the trial, and his lawyer said he was being treated for cancer in Singapore. The trial was eventually postponed due to a lack of evidence or a strong enough argument to press charges against Danh, Be and 44 other bankers standing trial. When the trial resumed in July, Ha was summoned again, along with 234 other people. He did not show up again, as he was reportedly still in Singapore for treatment. A source told VnExpress that after a surgery in Singapore early this year, Ha had returned to Vietnam and then moved to Laos. Details of Ha's arrest, including the location, are not yet available. Danh was sentenced to 20 years in jail while Be received four years in the July trial. Vietnam has over recent years arrested and tried several bankers over financial irregularities as it seeks to restructure a banking system still reeling from nonperforming loans, mismanagement and under-regulated lending. The BIDV arrests come amid a...

MaximsNewsNetwork: VIETNAM $500 MILLION DEVELOPMENT POLICY LOAN (WORLD BANK)
 
01:45
MaximsNewsNetwork: 23 December 2009 - World Bank: Vietnam - Vietnam's goal to reach middle-income status by 2010 moved a step closer today following the approval by the World Bank's Board of a $500 million development policy loan that will support the country's stimulus program and drive a major program of public investment reforms. Vietnam gets its first loan from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), a low-interest lending arm of the World Bank aimed at reducing poverty in middle income and creditworthy poorer countries. Until now, support to Vietnam has come from the World Banks International Development Association (IDA) which provides credits and grants to the worlds poorest countries. SOUNDBITE (English) Jim Adams, Vice President for the East Asia & Pacific region, World Bank: This is an important milestone for Vietnam, when Vietnam first began borrowing 15 years ago from the Bank it was a very poor low income country, facing enormous challenges. Because it has followed good economic policies and implemented its program well, we now view it as eligible for lending from the Bank and this will allow Vietnam to increase its overall borrowing from the bank and have a more effective investment program. The loan, the first of an expected two, is the Banks direct response to a request from the Government of Vietnam for resources to support its stimulus package which has been helping to sustain economic activity throughout the economic crisis. Over the last two years, Vietnam has experienced a succession of shocks starting with massive capital inflows in 2007, a surge in commodity prices in 2008 and export declines as a result of the global economic crisis. Stimulus measures adopted in late 2008 and supplemented in early 2009 contributed to a growth rate of 4.6 percent for the first nine months of 2009. SOUNDBITE (English) Victoria Kwakwa, Vietnam Country Director, World Bank: The loan is in support of a program of public investment reforms in Vietnam, Vietnam has a pretty decent record of how it has managed it public investments. As it reaches middle income status, the investment financing needs and the investment needs are significantly larger, and this means that a lot more attention needs to be paid to ensuring that public resources are used as efficiently as possible in delivering these investments, and so this program of reforms will support efforts to strengthen the whole investment cycle, from the planning, to the preparing to the implementation. The reform program will target environmental screening of publicly funded infrastructure projects, environmental management, project preparation and appraisal, procurement, public financial management, the regulatory framework for private participation in infrastructure and monitoring and evaluation. Todays loan approval builds on the recent Country Partnership Strategy Progress report which was approved by the Bank's Board last November. The report highlights a number of new areas of engagement for the World Bank Group in Vietnam that are in line with evolving Government priorities, including further financial support for Vietnams natural disaster response and the development of a framework for public-private partnerships. ........................................................................................................................................................................

What is holding Indonesia's economy back? | Counting the Cost
 
26:01
Indonesia's economy isn't growing as fast as President Joko Widodo had promised it would when he was elected five years ago. But the president, who is also known as Jokowi, has put the economy at the centre of his pitch to voters for the April elections once again. He is spending huge sums to try to get re-elected for a second term, giving regional governments billions as well as giving hand-outs to the country's poorest. While Indonesia is well on its way to becoming a $2 trillion economy in the next five years, a population of more than 250 million people strung across more than 17,000 islands is being held back by - among other things - poor infrastructure. The World Bank estimates that Indonesia has an infrastructure gap of $1.5 trillion compared with other emerging markets. Widodo is halfway through a 10-year, $327bn programme to construct new airports, highways and ports. Indonesia's first subway has opened in the country's capital, Jakarta last week - a development that's seen as crucial to tackling some of the world's worst congestion costing Indonesia billions in lost revenue. So what is holding Indonesia's economy back? And could it damage the president's hopes for re-election? "I think there's a number of factors ... [holding back the economy]," says Gareth Leather, senior economist at Capital Economics. "I think more fundamentally, it's just been a failure to revitalise the manufacturing sector, which, when he [Joko Widodo] set out five years ago was one of his key aims ... In Indonesia, it's incredibly expensive to hire and fire workers. And what that means is that people are reluctant to set up manufacturing facilities in Indonesia when they could so much more cheaply in neighbouring, say Vietnam for example. I think that's been the key reason why growth has failed to come anywhere near the government's target." According to Leather, Widodo "has made some reasonable progress in infrastructure spendings ... The key thing that he really needs to do is press ahead with these labour market reforms ... I think without that then Indonesia is really going to struggle to attract the kind of manufacturing sector that it needs to really raise growth above the five percent that we seem to be stuck at the moment. "If you look at the most successful Asian economies since the second World War ... What they all had in common was a very competitive export-orientated manufacturing sector. Now this is something that Indonesia really struggled to create and generate .... Until you see the big changes in the labour market - and also land reform is another area that he hasn't really touched on - Indonesia is really going to struggle." Also on Counting the Cost: Struggling to earn a living in Manila: Around one in five of the Philippines' 106 million people live in extreme poverty, getting by on less than $2 a day. Many, including children, work long hours as street vendors or labourers to make enough money to feed themselves. Hunger occurs most in the agriculture and fishing sectors where 70 percent of workers are poor. Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila. Political funding in India: India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared the country a space power after the successful test of an anti-satellite missile, but opposition leaders complain that Modi used the test to score political points. More than 900 million Indians will go to the polls in the world's biggest democratic process beginning on April 11. Political parties are expected to spend $7bn over the election cycle that ends on May 23. But who is financing political parties and their candidates? Sreeram Chaulia, Jindal School of International Affairs, talks to Counting the Cost about political funding, recent reforms and the issues around it. Community farms in Venezuela: Community farms are springing up in the oil-rich nation of Venezuela as US economic sanctions kick in. Venezuela produces only 20 percent of the food it consumes and a turn to farming is crucial for them to survive in the face of their political and economic crises.

Marc Faber is wrong on Thailand and Vietnam Real Estate
 
05:43
Why is Marc Faber wrong on Thailand and Vietnam real estate? Andrew Henderson responds to Marc Faber's analysis of emerging market real estate. While Faber makes some excellent points on the US market, some of his claims about Southeast Asia aren't really the best advice. Andrew loves Vietnam and believes that there could be some great opportunities there, but buying real estate there is probably not a good idea. The truth is that Vietnam real estate market is all but ready to fall apart, but nobody is really talking about it. There are some promising cities like Da Nang, that will be turned into resorts, but aside from that area, there isn't much investment opportunity in Vietnam. In general, things are massively overpriced at real estate level in this country and the government itself isn't inspiring a lot of trust. What are Andrew's thoughts on Thai real estate? Keep watching the video. Subscribe to our channel and stay tuned for more videos and information about second passports, offshore strategy, reducing your taxes and going where you're treated best. --- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom. Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.

BRICS Bank and its Impact on VND
 
02:38
What is BRICS? BRICS is an association of the 5 biggest emerging economies in the world; Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The association began with four members in 2009, and South Africa was later included in 2011. The purpose of this association was to improve the financial situations of the fastest growing economies in the world. All 5 countries had the aim to reform the established international financial institutions, like the World Bank, and they wanted an alternate currency for performing international trade. BRICS Development Bank Adhering to their agenda, they formulated the BRICS Development Bank, now known as the New Development Bank (NDB). BRICS nation formed the bank in July of 2014, as an alternative international financial organization to the World Bank and IMF (International Monetary Fund). Headquartered in Shanghai, China, the NDB will provide loans to developing countries, in order to strengthen their infrastructure. NDB’s Impact on Vietnam Before it reached its current stabilized place in the international market, Vietnamese currency devalued at an alarming rate. And the major reasons why this currency is not reflecting the economic progress of Vietnam, are the IMF and World Bank. Both these institutions hold great sway in the international market and their preferred currency is the US dollar. With the help of the NDB international trade will occur using alternate currencies, other than the dollar or euro, and possibly even the said country’s local currency; which will help to strengthen the currency of countries like Vietnam. VND in particular is expected to revalue, because of the impeding trade agreements Vietnam has with Russia and China. Both countries are expected to make large investments in Vietnam in the near future, in multiple economic sectors. Since China and Russia are BRICS members, the trade will go through BRICS, and not World Bank or IMF. Predicting when and how fast the Dong will revalue is difficult, but the one surety is that the revaluation will happen in the near future. If you have been thinking about investing in the VND, then now is the time to do it. Check out our collection of VND bank notes and select amount of investment you want to make, we offer authentic, safe and reliable VND purchases.

Former chairman of top Vietnam bank arrested in massive fraud case
 
03:26
The Ministry of Public Security pressed charges against Ha, former chairman of Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV), with violating banking regulations, on Thursday. Three other senior officials - Tran Luc Lang, former deputy general director at BIDV, Kieu Dinh Hoa, former director of BIDV branch in Ha Tinh Province in north central Vietnam and Le Thi Van Anh, former head of the customer service department at the branch, also face the same carges. Lang and Hoa are also in custody. Ha was investigated for his responsibility in "very serious" violations committed at state-owned BIDV, Vietnam's second largest listed bank, linked to a massive fraud case at Vietnam Construction Bank (VNCB). In its report in June, the Central Inspection Committee, the top watchdog of Vietnam's Communist Party, concluded that Ha had violated the democratic centralism principle and working regulations, was guilty of mismanagement, as well as violations of the duties and responsibilities of his position. Ha also violated credit procedures and regulations in approving a number of loans, investments and debt management decisions. In particular, he enabled 12 companies owned by Pham Cong Danh, former chairman of VNCB, to borrow VND4.7 trillion ($206 million) from BIDV. While BIDV eventually managed to retrieve this money, the loans had helped Danh steal over VND9 trillion from VNCB. At a trial in 2016, Danh was sentenced to 30 years in prison, the maximum jail term allowed by Vietnam's Penal Code. In addition to holding Ha responsible, inspectors found that the standing committee of BIDV's Party unit for the 2010-2015 and 2015-2020 terms had also violated the democratic centralism principle, showed lack of responsibility, poor leadership and lack of inspection and supervision. These violations in turn enabled multiple systematic violations to occur at BIDV, causing very serious consequences and resulting in many staff members being criminally prosecuted, negatively affecting the lives of all BIDV employees, the inspectors said. Ha was expelled from the Party in June. Ha, 61, worked at BIDV for 35 years before retiring in September 2016. During the trial that opened in January regarding violations committed by Danh and Tram Be, a former deputy chairman of Sacombank who also let Danh borrow money from his bank, Ha was summoned as a witness and a person with related interests and obligations. However Ha did not attend the trial, and his lawyer said he was being treated for cancer in Singapore. The trial was eventually postponed due to a lack of evidence or a strong enough argument to press charges against Danh, Be and 44 other bankers standing trial. When the trial resumed in July, Ha was summoned again, along with 234 other people. He did not show up again, as he was reportedly still in Singapore for treatment. A source told VnExpress that after a surgery in Singapore early this year, Ha had returned to Vietnam and then moved to Laos. Details of Ha's arrest, including the location, are not yet available. Danh was sentenced to 20 years in jail while Be received four years in the July trial. Vietnam has over recent years arrested and tried several bankers over financial irregularities as it seeks to restructure a banking system still reeling from nonperforming...

Police also arrested four executives of the bank for similar allegations and a businessman accused of property appropriation.

Thomas Fingar: Understanding China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative
 
01:01:56
China is heavily investing in two infrastructure routes: a “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” stretching from Southern China across the Indian Ocean to connect Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Africa to the Mediterranean; and a land-based Silk Road Economic Belt connecting Western China to Europe via Central Asia. Establishing these transcontinental trade routes will likely cost over one trillion dollars and will cover 65% of the world's population. This investment could help fill a wide “infrastructure investment gap” in China and the 68 other Asian, African, and European countries it passes through, however, traditional international development actors such as multilateral investment banks and developed nations are concerned about the outcomes, terms, and process that come with this massive investment. There are still a number of questions surrounding how China might protect the route after it's built and if the benefits will outweigh the risk. Should recipient countries be worried about political strings that might come attached to OBOR projects? What impact does this different unilateral, loan-based model have on the recipient countries? How likely is China to succeed in achieving these grand investment goals and how will a project of this scale continue to contribute to China’s own growth? What type of impact does this project have on global trade in general? Join us and Dr. Thomas Fingar, a Shorenstein APARC fellow in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, to discuss these and other questions surrounding China’s massive undertaking.
