In Vietnam, the first PBC was implemented in 2008 in the city of Ho Chi Minh, at the initiative of the World Bank. Over its six years, this PBC project has saved 122 MLDs of water, improved security of supply, connected more customers to the grid, and saved more than $100 million in investment through water system reform and restoration. Comparing this project to a similar, traditional project carried out during the same period in a neighboring district of Ho Chi Minh-Stadt, it was found that the PBC was implemented faster, saved more water and reduced operating costs per unit of water. The wider application of the PBC approach in Vietnam can foster investment in the infrastructure sector, side by side with the private and public sectors, and promote the effective management of public water resources. The first 3 days at HCMC were hard for me. I hated where I slept, which asked me if I had made the right decision or not. I felt so guilty for leaving my mother, Iacopo and other friends in Scotland. I was so ready to have a few drinks with the other teachers on the first night of friay, but instead I was shown the new Stephen King IT movie. I hate horror movies, but I had a choice between that and staying in the hotel. Another sleepless night, but not because of the state of the hotel. In short, my first week in Saigon was quite mental. The heat, the huge amount of bikes on the streets, the monsoon weather and the crazy kids really were a shock to the system. Still, I love the atmosphere of the city.
There are so many people, with so many people, that it`s hard to get bored. M. Schweisshelm said Vietnamese NGOs see the deal as an opportunity for more leeway if the EU takes care of progress on international labour standards. So far, Vietnam has insisted that the terms „civil society” or „civil society organizations” not be included in the draft agreement. There are about 15 other vinalearn teachers in this area, so we weren`t alone, we would find our own cool bars and restaurants, in a more traditional, Vietnamese environment, away from tourist traps. It was a long day where we moved all our luggage in the main traffic. We spent the rest of the day unpacking and checking the environment. (6) This tendering procedure for the CP3a package shall be conducted in parallel with the tendering procedure for the CP3b package.
Contractors who wish to offer both packages also have the option of offering a discount if both packages are allocated to the contractor. The employer evaluates and compares the compliant offers for each package in order to obtain the least expensive combination taking into account the discounts offered in the tender letter. Where a tenderer makes successful bids (the lowest, essentially reactive) for cp3a and CP3b, the evaluation shall also include an assessment of the bidder`s ability to meet the aggregate requirements contained in the bid; Nguyen Minh Vu, Vietnam`s ambassador to Germany, said the agreement is a positive step for the Vietnamese and European economies. On April 29, 1975, „White Christmas” was broadcast from radios throughout Saigon, the signal for Americans to evacuate the Capitol. Seven thousand people, mostly Americans and South Vietnamese, were evacuated from the city. . .
