Missing stamp causes civil service chaos
All major companies in Viet Nam, including public offices, have a carved
wooden seal they use to sign off major documents. Many documents are
only valid if the seal is, as they say, affixed. Given the importance
and significance of a seal, people were flabbergasted at the news that
the Peoples' Committee of Commune 9 in Tuy Hoa City in Phu Yen Province
lost its seal last Monday.
