- Friday, September 17, 2021
YBO - The Union of Science and Technology Associations of Yen Bai province has collaborated with the provincial Historical Science Association to organise a conference highlighting Yen Bai’s outstanding achievements during 30 years of re-establishment.
An overview of the conference
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh will lead a high-ranking Vietnamese delegation to attend the 38th and 39th ASEAN Summits, ASEAN summits with partners and the third Mekong-Republic of Korea (RoK) Summit via videoconference from October 26-28 at the invitation of Sultan of Brunei Darussalam Hasanal Bolkiah – Chair of ASEAN 2021.
Since the beginning of 2021, the tourism sector has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The suspension of flights, social distancing, travel restrictions, and concerns caused by the pandemic have led to a fall in the number of visitors to Yen Bai province, with international tourists dropping by 94.4 percent year on year.
Yen Bai has so far recorded no local COVID-19 transmissions, which was partly attributable to efforts by departments and agencies, and the public's compliance with authorities’ directions and high awareness of disease prevention. Local residents feel happy when living a completely normal life and do not have to suffer disadvantages due to social distancing.
The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union chapter and the Vietnam Youth Federation Committee in Yen Bai province on October 12 organised a seminar on young ethnic minority intellectuals and digital transformation.
