Troi Oi March 2018

The Country in Numbers


900 vehicles were fined earlier this year for breaching the three-minute stop rule at Tan Son Nhat Airport. While ‘no parking’ signs are erected along the street in front of the terminals inside the airport, the regulation has been relaxed, with drivers now given three minutes of stopping for picking up or dropping off passengers. Drivers who breach the three-minute limit will be subjected to a VND350,000 fine. Any vehicles found without the driver inside will be deemed illegal parking, thus receiving a fine of VND700,000. In 2017, transport inspectors detected and fined a total of VND587.5 million on 903 vehicles, according to the transport department.


USD 62 Million cemetery will be built for high-ranking state and Party officials, national heroes and people of note in the uptown part of the capital. The new graveyard will cover an area of roughly 120 hectares, of which about 60 percent is allocated for burial plots and the remaining for decorative verdant background. It will be created in a rural town of Hanoi, at the foot of Ba Vi Mountain. The cemetery will accommodate up to 2,500 plots and is due for completion in three years. The final resting place is designed with a variety of functional facilities, such as buildings for work, reception and funeral service, together with land for traffic and a parking lot. Vietnam’s high-ranking leaders have been buried in Mai Dich Cemetery, Cau Giay District, Hanoi, since 1982.


94.7 million total population in Vietnam by the end of 2018. Vietnam’s population will rise by one million, its life expectancy will hit 73.7, and the infant sex ratio will be 112.8 boys/100 girls in 2018, according to the Vietnam General Office for Population-Family Planning (GOPFP). This would make Vietnam the 14th most populous country in the world. Vietnam’s population has increased by 1.07 percent compared to 2016, according Le Canh Nhac, deputy general director of GOPFP. About 1.3 million children were born in 2017, with the average sex ratio at 112.4 boys/100 girls. The highest boy to girl sex ratios of infants can be found in the northern provinces; such as Son La (120 boys/100 girls), Hung Yen (118.6 boys/100 girls), Bac Ninh (117.6 boys/100 girls), Hai Duong (116.3 boys/100 girls) and Hanoi is 114 boys/100 girls.



1.5 kilometers of track will be added to the 17 kilometers of elevated rail that make up Saigon metro route No.1, connecting Ben Thanh Terminal in District 1 with Suoi Tien Terminal in District 9. The parallel tracks, which will allow trains to travel in both directions, have been placed between the two metro stations in Thu Duc District and District 9. According to an engineer in charge of the construction, about 50 meters of track will continue to be installed per day. The installation is expected to be completed in late 2018. The construction of metro route No. 1 began in 2012, at a budgeted cost of about US$2.49 billion. The structure will be nearly 20 kilometers long on completion and is designed to connect District 1, District 2, District 9, Binh Thanh District and Thu Duc District in Ho Chi Minh City.


80 clubbers were caught using drugs in a club in Dong Nai. Officers raided the H5 Club on Vo Thi Sau in the provincial capital city of Bien Hoa. 218 customers and employees were inside the venue at the time of the raid, many of whom displayed symptoms of being under the influence of drugs. Following an on-the-spot examination, officers confiscated two and a half pills worth of ecstasy, another packet of synthetic drugs, one bag of marijuana, and two switchblades, which had been thrown on the floor.
