Vietnam, Venezuela boasts potential for fishery cooperation: Ambassador

Vietnam and Venezuela have favorable conditions to bolster cooperation in fisheries, Vietnamese Ambassador Le Viet Duyen said while addressing a recent forum.

The ambassador’s attendance at the fishery forum and his recent working visit to Maracaibo city in Zulia state were intended to promote trade ties between Vietnam and Venezuela.

The diplomat noted that Vietnam’s fishery export ranks third in the world, only after China and Norway, with annual revenue of nearly 1 billion USD, reported VNA.

Regarding the trade ties between Vietnam and Venezuela, he said in the first 10 months of 2022, the two-way trade increased 700% year-on-year, stressing that after 15 years of establishing the comprehensive partnership, the two countries have signed more than 50 bilateral cooperation agreements, including those on fisheries.

Pointing out that the bilateral fishery cooperation has yet to match the potential of both sides, Duyen suggested parliamentarians, leaders of ministries and agencies, and scholars of Venezuela coordinate with the Vietnamese side to set up cooperation mechanisms and sign technical deals to facilitate fishery and food trading, covering food safety and hygiene.

Venezuelan Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture Juan Carlos Loyo spoke highly of Vietnam’s economic achievements, particularly those in fisheries, and expressed his hope that the Southeast Asian nation will share its experience in this field.

The participating Venezuelan parliamentarians, officials, scholars, and businesses said they will work to seek cooperation mechanisms with Vietnam in economy, trade, and investment in general and fisheries in particular.

Northerners feel chill as the cold wave intensifies

The cold wave conditions intensified on December 4 morning, sending temperatures further dropping across the northern region.

The intensified cold front will first hit the northern mountainous region, then spread out across other places in the north, north-central and central regions during the day, according to weather experts at the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

Vietnam News Today (Dec. 5):
People in urban areas don warm clothes when they hit the road at this time of year.

Intensified winds will cause temperatures to fall sharply to below 5 degrees Celsius in the uplands, to 10-13 degrees Celsius in the midlands and to 13-15 degrees Celsius in the northern delta and the north-central region.

The capital city of Hanoi remains cold, with temperatures ranging from 14 to 16 degrees Celsius, cited VOV.

More cold air waves are expected to strike the north of Vietnam in the next few days, and local people will continue to feel the chill in the coming winter days.

Meanwhile, the intensified cold wave combined with turbulence in the high-altitude East wind zone will bring rain to some localities in the central region from Ha Tinh to Quang Ngai from December 4 to 6. Some localities are expected to receive rainfall of between 100 -200 mm, or even more than 200 mm.

Weather forecasters warned about risks of flash floods and landslides in mountainous areas and flooding in low-lying areas, river estuaries and urban areas from Thua Thien Hue to Khanh Hoa provinces.

Fuel supply estimated to surge 10-15% in 2023

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has drawn up two scenarios for the minimum fuel supply in 2023, requiring key fuel enterprises to increase the overall figure by 10-15% in 2023, according to the local media.

In the first scenario, the total fuel supply should reach 25.9 million cubic meters, up 10%, while the second one requires enterprises to ensure the fuel supply reaches 26.76 million cubic meters, up 15% over 2022.

Currently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has allocated at least 5.5 million cubic meters of fuel in the fourth quarter of 2022 to satisfy the market demand and ease fuel shortages throughout the country, SGT reported.
