The new salary regime is part of a bigger plan for comprehensive salary reform being drafted by the Government in accordance with Resolution No. Economically, salary reform will create the driving force for economic growth. This will help improve the quality and professionalism of the workforce, and reduce the number of incompetent public servants. Reasonable restructuring will help create more resources to carry out wage reform. However, this sum is just enough for a short period while the wage reform is meant to last long.

By Hamy NguyễnI have always thought that quality ingredients are the foundation of any decent dish, so was eager to experience Lamai, an upscale restaurant that only uses Vietnamese ingredients. Vietnamese ingredients are incredibly delicious, but it can be difficult to guarantee quality. Indeed, Lamai restaurant might be the only upscale eatery to have made such a bold decision. I decided to have set menu B (VNĐ1,500,000), which is the most expensive and has more courses than the winter set menu I had previously eaten. While the 20-item set menu is incredibly inventive, it will also force people to make comparisons.

The guardian would always be a white man, which is a cause for concern in itself. The book dug deep into the ring’s crime, its mastermind and the 24 murders of the Osage that were never investigated. Tale of murderThe cinematic adaptation of the book turns the plot into a love story of greed and murder. The white man courted her, at the order of his uncle, who was also the ring leader and staged the murders of her sisters, and killed her mother. It reflects a truth that's hard to swallow: no matter how much people talk about gender equality, white superiority, so closely associated with greed, eats up everything around it.

In the three years since its signing, the United Kingdom – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (UKVFTA) has benefited both Vietnamese and British businesses. What impact has the UKVFTA had on Việt Nam and the UK? I was thrilled when the UK and Việt Nam finalised negotiations on the UKVFTA in 2020, marking a significant milestone in our nations' economic and trade relations. The UKVFTA stands as a testament to the power of diplomatic collaboration, fostering prosperity and sustainable development for both nations. This is excellent to see - it provides consumers in the UK with increased choice and also supports prosperity here in Việt Nam.
