  • Topic of this Week: "Air Pollution (May 19, 2019)"

    Air pollution in Hanoi has recently reached alarming levels. The  PM2.5 particulate level recorded was seven times higher than the  permissible level set by the World Health Organization, which is harmful  to human health and can cause serious respiratory problems. The  declining air quality in Hanoi has been attributed to high traffic  volumes and industrial activity.
    In Hanoi, motorbikes and cars have become the preferred mode of transportation. Almost  everyone in the city owns a motorbike, while public transport is not  yet been able to meet the city’s demand. There is an average of 19,000  new personal vehicles registered per month in the capital, according to  Hanoi Traffic Police.
    Hanoi  is a rapidly growing city with more than 1,000 construction projects  presently underway, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources and  Environment. Nearly 150 out of 400 manufacturing facilities in the area  have also been reported as emitting large quantities of air pollution.
    Local residents have also blamed the felling of hundreds of trees in  the city in 2015 as a contributor to the decline of air quality.
    What do you think about this situation? We would love to hear your ideas, let’s meet up and talk at Advance this week ????
     

    Questions to ponder:
    1. What are the reasons and consequences of the air pollution to the city, residents, …?
    2. Which actions should be taken to tackle this problem?
    3. The local residents in Hanoi are really worried about the situation  recently; however, there is a professor saying that the alarming level  was reached in Hanoi only 1-2 days, so it’s not a big problem. Do you  agree with him?
    4. There were researches conducted to measure  the relation between the air pollution level and psychology. It’s found  that the higher pollution level leads to a higher crime rate. What’s  your opinion about this statement?

    US - CHINA TRADE WAR (November 04, 2018)

    (23:04:30 PM 02/11/2018)

    The world’s two largest economies: the United States and China have been top trading partners for years. However, while trade relations between the two economic powerhouses have not always been smooth, they changed dramatically when on May 29, 2018, President Trump stated that USTR shall announce by June 15 the imposition of an additional duty of 25 percent on approximately $50 billion worth of Chinese imports containing industrially significant technologies, including those related to China’s “Made in China 2025” industrial policy. And actually, On July 6, the U.S. specifically targeted China by imposing 25% tariffs on $34 billion of imported Chinese good as part of Trump's tariffs policy,. Since that the trade war happened between the two nations, and each country in turn imposes tariffs on the goods being imported from the other.
      The trade war between the United States and China just got a lot bigger when On 24th September 2018, The US levied tariffs of 10 per cent on USD 200 billion of Chinese products, ranging from good seasonings and baseball gloves to network routers, with the rate set to increase to 25 per cent by the end of the year. In response, Beijing said it would impose taxes on 5,207 US imports worth about USD 60 billion.
      The war between the world’s top two economies is already hurting companies on both sides of the Pacific and affects Global Trade including our country.
    Come to Advance this Sunday to share your point of view.
