    he target of keeping the country’s inflation below 4 per cent in 2017 is quite feasible, said Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ at a meeting late last week.

    Speaking at the meeting held to better implement price management in the second half of the year, Huệ said that while managing the consumer price index (CPI), relevant ministries and agencies must keep track of and support the country’s economic growth target, and avoid triggering high inflation in the future.

    To meet the goal, Huệ said the ministries and agencies must keep abreast of demand and supply, and avoid imposing administrative procedures so that gradually, the price of essential public services can be modified based on the market price roadmap.

    Huệ instructed the State Bank of Việt Nam to devise monetary policies accordingly, and be flexible. These policies must complement fiscal policies to ensure inflation stays under check, he said.

    The lending interest rate policy must be mapped out based on market development so as to support economic growth, he said.

    The deputy PM has asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) to work in conjunction with the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to manage petroleum prices according to the market mechanism, under State management based on Decree 83/2014/NĐ-CP, with reasonable use of the petroleum pricing stabilisation fund.

    • Vietnam Renews India Oil Deal in Tense South China Sea
      Vietnam Renews India Oil Deal in Tense South China Sea

      Vietnam has extended an Indian oil concession in the South China Sea and begun drilling in another area it disputes with China in moves that could heighten tensions over who owns what in the vital maritime region.
      The moves come at a delicate time in Beijing's relations with Vietnam, which claims parts of the sea, and India, which recently sent warships to monitor the Malacca Straits, through which most of China's energy supplies and trade passes.
      Vietnam granted Indian oil firm ONGC Videsh a two-year extension to explore oil block 128 in a letter that arrived earlier this week, the state-run company's managing director Narendra K. Verma told Reuters.
      Part of that block is in the U-shaped 'nine-dash line' which marks the vast area that China claims in the sea, a route for more than $5 trillion in trade each year in which the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Taiwan also have claims.
