New Outlook celebrates VN’s 60th National Day

(08-08-2005)

HA NOI — This month’s issue of Outlook magazine, which hits Ha Noi and HCM City today, celebrates Viet Nam’s 60th National Day (September 2).

To mark the nation’s founding, this issue includes a transcript of President Ho Chi Minh’s famous Declaration of Independence that he read aloud at Ba Dinh Square on September 2, 1945.

The issue also examines the nation’s administrative reforms, both past and future. In-depth analysis of current administrative reforms reveal how difficult it is for administration and court systems to make their work transparent and accountable.

The 68-page magazine also deals with the latest developments in legal reforms, including an article on the recent Supreme People’s Court’s decision to publish their decisions.

Our other regulars introduce readers to a favourite food in Viet Nam, sour bamboo shoots, and highlights a luxurious eco-spa called Tan Da in Ha Tay Province, 60km west of Ha Noi.

One feature focuses on the village of Son Dong, 16km west of Ha Noi, famous for its sculptures of Buddha, and infamous for its overcrowding and pollution.

In regional issues, the magazine reviews a two-month-old crisis that has created deep division in the Philippines, as well as the legacy of American and French nuclear testing in the Pacific, which has left as many as 55,000 islanders subject to radioactivity, contamination and hundreds of cancers.

Don’t forget to check out other regular columns like History (the story of Ly Thuong Kiet and his rise from servant to general) and Streetlife, for a look at a tasty habit that may be on the verge of extinction. — VNS
