Gov't to enforce children helmet law

A new national enforcement action plan will be launched next month as part of the larger national child helmet action plan to increase the rate of children wearing helmets, according to the National Traffic Safety Committee.

Starting from April, traffic police officers will begin a drive against motorbike riders carrying children aged more than six without a crash helmet.

Last year the plan helped increase the child helmet-wearing rate from 36 per cent to 68 per cent in April, but it then reduced to 47 per cent by December.

Turkey puts anti-dumping duty on VN granite

Turkey has imposed an anti-dumping tariff on granite imported from Viet Nam, the Viet Nam Competition Authority said citing a conclusion by the Turkish Ministry of Economy.

The country will impose a tax of US$174 per tonne, the same rate applicable to Chinese products.

Turkey started probing granite imports from Viet Nam in December 2014 to find if it had any links to the anti-dumping tax evasion by China. The investigation found that Vietnamese exporters had shipped granite to Turkey for Chinese companies to help them evade anti-dumping tariffs slapped on them.
