HÀ NỘI — The Vietnam Banks Association (VNBA) has proposed a 2 per cent value-added tax (VAT) reduction for credit institutions because the institutions are currently facing difficulties, with their non-performing loans and potentially risky debts tending to increase significantly. The VNBA made the move last week as, under a draft policy on VAT reduction for the first six months of next year, the credit institutions do not feature in the list of commodities and services that will receive the benefit. According to the VNBA, it agrees with the content of the draft policy to reduce VAT by 2 per cent in the first half of 2024, but proposes credit institutions be added to the list of commodities and services that will receive the 2 per cent VAT cut. According to the VNBA, the operations of credit institutions are currently very difficult. To create conditions for the institutions to have more resources to support firms and invest in digital transformation technology, ensuring security and safety in operations, the VNBA therefore has proposed adding the credit institutions to the list of commodities and services that will receive a 2 per cent VAT reduction next year.

by Nguyễn Thiên AnhIt is understandable that most parents love and worry about their adult children regardless of their age, but sometimes this love turns into a form of control, causing frustration for their children. Nguyễn An Khánh, 30, tells Việt Nam News that this is a part of the culture of Asian parenting, and thus is something that she just accepts. Her parents can also be very controlling, and she feels envious of her friends when she sees that they have more freedom. This is not only a problem in Việt Nam, but is a problem around the world. After all, love should not be about controlling, it should be about caring and bringing happiness into other people’s lives.
