Brussels – Belgian parliamentarian André
Flahaut on November 30 handed over to the Vietnamese Embassy in Brussels four
wheelchairs and four walkers as gifts to Agent Orange/dioxin (AO) victims in
the central province of Quang Tri.

Ambassador Nguyen Van Thao thanked Flahaut for the warm
sentiments that he and the group of Belgian parliamentarians sponsoring a resolution on support for Vietnamese AO victims approved by the Belgian parliament in October, have shown towards
Vietnamese AO victims.

The diplomat highly appreciated the efforts and
contributions that Flahaut has made, together with other parliamentarians,
organisations and individuals in Belgium as well as international friends, to
assist AO victims in Vietnam.

For his part, Flahaut affirmed that he will exert
every effort to bring good things to AO victims in Vietnam with the hope that they
will have a better life.

The Belgian lawmaker showed his delight at the growing ties
between Belgium and Vietnam over the years with many high-ranking visits, most
recently the Belgium visit by Vietnamese National Assembly Vice Chairman Tran
Thanh Man.

Flahaut used to be President of the Belgian Chamber
of Representatives. In December 2021, he submitted to the Belgian parliament a
resolution on supporting AO victims in Vietnam, which was approved by the Belgian
Chamber of Representatives on October 5 with 100% approval votes. The Belgian parliament is the first parliament in the world to adopt a resolution supporting AO victims./.

In Vietnam, restaurant returns mistakenly transferred money

Published

on

A restaurant in Thanh Hoa Province, north-central Vietnam has found a customer who mistakenly transferred VND270 million (US$11,140) for a VND270,000 ($11.1) meal to return the spare amount, the restaurateur said on Thursday.

Hoang Hiep, the owner of Lan Ngan Restaurant in Thanh Hoa City under the namesake province, had earlier asked for netizens’ and media agencies’ help to find the customer who made the error.

On Thursday afternoon, the customer, named H.T.T.T., 40, residing in Nghi Son Town, Thanh Hoa Province, contacted the restaurant after reading its notification on social media and in newspapers.

T. had returned to Vietnam after working in Taiwan and had lunch at Lan Ngan Restaurant on Friday last week.

When making the payment, she was not aware that she had transferred VND270 million to the restaurant’s account.

Her personal information and the money transfer time coincided with those of the customer transferring the money to the restaurant.

The restaurant also checked its CCTV footage to confirm that T. was the customer that it was seeking.

The restaurateur asked her to come to a local police station to receive the money on Friday morning.

Hiep said that many imposters had contacted his restaurant attempting to take the money.

Hanoi –
Representatives from the
Vietnamese Ministry of Home Affairs and the French Ministry of Public
Transformation and Service exchanged experience in modernising public services,
reforming administrative procedures, and raising digital transformation capacity, at a symposium in Hanoi on November 30.

The event formed part of the cooperation activities
between the two ministries to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam-France
diplomatic relations and the 10 years of the bilateral strategic partnership.

In her opening remarks, Minister of Home Affairs Pham
Thi Thanh Tra stressed that Vietnam always advocates accelerating administrative
reform and the modernisation of public services, considering this a
breakthrough for national development.

Administrative reform must serve the interests of
people and businesses, placing their legal and legitimate rights and interests at
the centre, and promoting innovation, for rapid, sustainable national
development, the official stressed.

Tra expressed her belief that the symposium will
contribute to tightening the friendship and cooperation between the two
countries, saying the two ministries will carry forward their cooperation
outcomes and enhance experience sharing in the time ahead.

French Minister of Public Transformation and Service
Stanislas Guérini pointed to challenges regarding demography, digital transformation
and ecology, noting that both France and Vietnam face demography-related issues
given their declining birth rates and aging populations, which requires the
sector to take suitable changes.

For digital transformation, the minister said that it
has brought about great opportunities to French administrative agencies in
particular and others around the world.

Participating experts, scientists, and managers
from Vietnam and France evaluated achievements, as well as challenges in public
service modernisation, administrative reform, and digital transformation
capacity improvement in both nations.

They shared experiences, new models and policy
orientations to work towards building a professional, modern, streamlined,
effective, and efficient administrative sector./.
