HCM CITY — The HCM City Superior People’s Procuracy proposed that the HCM City Superior People’s Court overturn the decision of the HCM City People’s Court made in December that said ride-hailing firm Grab must compensate local taxi firm Vinasun for alleged losses the latter had allegedly suffered. Vinasun alleged Grab was the sole factor for its earnings decline after Grab began doing business in Việt Nam in 2015. However, the city Superior People’s Procuracy, in its decision yesterday, said that Grab had been allowed to pilot contracted passenger transportation under the Transport Ministry’s Decision 24 and there had been no proof of violations made by Grab. Grab followed all of Decision 24 instructions, the Procuracy said. Without such evidence, the Procuracy proposed that the Superior Court deny Vinasun’s demand for compensation of VNĐ41.2 billion.

Vinasun alleged Grab was the sole factor for its earnings decline after Grab began doing business in Việt Nam in 2015. In addition, Grab had claimed to be a technology firm, but Vinasun argued that Grab was a taxi transport company with a large number of drivers and that Grab had hurt local taxi companies’ earnings by offering cheaper fares. In May last year, Grab was granted a business licence for passenger transportation downtown, except for bus operations, from the HCM City’s Planning and Investment Department. The Procuracy said that Vinasun had not provided evidence that proved Grab’s violations were the only cause for Vinasun’s losses. But Grab’s passenger transportation did not violate the law.

Tín, whose pond and house is located on Cồn Sơn (Sơn Islet), has bred the fish for 20 years. “Unlike other snakehead fish which often dive deep underwater, my fish leap from the water to snatch their food," Tín said. Visitors can watch the brief show, then eat dried snakehead fish afterwards. “The meat from the flying snakehead fish is more delicious because they jump out of the water every day, which develops their muscles,” Tín said. Cần Thơ City is about 160km from HCM City.

Therefore, in order to improve rankings in ASEAN, it is certain that Vietnamese enterprises must "go faster". However, that does not mean that businesses need to be afraid because Việt Nam has a number of opportunities. Each year, Việt Nam exports nearly US$30 billion of textile products and nearly $70 billion of electronic products and components, but supporting industries in these two sectors have not yet developed strongly. Regarding supplying parts to the automotive industry, Việt Nam has less than 100 first tier suppliers while Thailand has nearly 700. Automotive components currently produced in Việt Nam are mainly simple parts, such as seats, glass, tires and tubes.
