An iPhone model developed by Apple (Photo: Getty Images) Hanoi (VNA) – According a Nikkei Asian Review report,Vietnam is among the most likely destinations for Apple to restructure its supply chain in. The California-based tech giant has decided the risks of depending heavily on manufacturing in China are too great, and it has asked major suppliers including Foxconn, Pagatron, Wistron, Quanta Computer and Compal Electronics to evaluate the cost of shifting 15-30 percent of production capacity from China to Southeast Asia. Economist Nguyen Dinh Anh told a Sputnik reporter that if Vietnam is selected, the domestic economy will be boosted while the country will have a chance to increase its prestige in the global economy.

In the late afternoon of 27 March 2007, I was travelling on the Paris metro, heading home after a day's work in the east end of the city. I got off at the Gare du Nord to change trains.

My only real fear was how to get through the tide of commuters, which by now had come to a dead halt, and on … [Read more...] about The French Intifada: how the Arab banlieues are fighting the French state
Mister Yonov Frederick Agah, Deputy General Director of the World Trade Organisation, who took part in the forum shared his insights into African industries and markets and their relations with outside global players. Sputnik: Great Britain and other nations, including the USA and France, are beginning to return to African countries because this is a place where relatively cheap labour and inexpensive natural resources remain. How is the expanding influence of China, the USA, and Europe affecting industries in Africa? Yonov Frederick Agah: I think we have to understand two things. Trade is about exchange between countries, and it’s expected that all countries should benefit from that exchange. Unfortunately, countries are not equally endowed; so, maybe because of resource endowment, because of capacity, because of location, sometimes because of policy misalignment countries don’t benefit as they should from trade. If you look back at the colonial times – I … [Read more...] about Commercial Wars and Energy Wars: a Zero-Sum War?
