Project Description

We are looking for someone to research up to seven interesting and pertinent news stories each week to be included into the weekly newsletter. Since the newsletter highlights macro-economic developments, we want news stories that include economic statistics on such topics such as economic growth (or lack thereof), trade and exports, foreign direct investments, budget deficit, fiscal issues, the textile industry, banking and financial services, energy and oil sector, and infrastructure development in Vietnam. Ideally, we would need the articles summarized every Thursday by 5pm EST so the stories selected can be reviewed. There are many reliable local websites, such as vietnambreakingnews.com, vietnamnet.vn, vietnamnews.vn. The newsletter gives a weekly snapshot of Vietnam's economic trends.
