How Vietnam Can Be Affected By Brexit

Far away from Britain is the Southeast Asian country Vietnam. So, how is this republic likely to get affected by a deal that involves European countries? The answers to that question will be discussed as the connection between Brexit and Vietnam is brought to light.

Britain’s planned exit from the European Union has raised many questions, and has led to a number of major political changes, especially in the United Kingdom. Will it also have an impact on Vietnam in any way—politically, economically, socially, et cetera?

There are three areas to look into. The first is concerning the yet to be ratified trade agreement between Vietnam and the EU. Brexit negotiations appear to be causing the delay since Brussels has put much of its focus on sealing the deal with the UK.

The second area is the economic implications for Britain. If the Brexit deal is ‘all said and done’, then the prices of some European products would go up. What this means is that UK consumers would have to consider cheaper alternatives like the Vietnamese market.

The third area is the need for Britain to establish new trade agreements with other countries once it is no longer a member of the EU. A likely option would be to enter into a deal already signed by Hanoi; the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Britain showed an interest in being a part of the deal in 2018, even though it was originally meant for countries around the Asia Pacific.

Brexit will affect Vietnam positively if it ever happens. The former is a member of the (CPTPP) with the lowest GDP per capita, so it would be a good turn of events for the country if Britain were to join the fold. The United States left the group in 2017 following President Donald Trump’s resolve.

As stated earlier, Britain may have to turn to the Vietnamese market for cheaper goods than the ones offered by other European countries. Britain’s EU exit is a highly beneficial economic prospect for Hanoi.

Looking at the failed attempts by Vietnam and the EU to close the free trade deal (EVFTA), it appears that the former will have to be patient till Brussels reaches an agreement with the UK. It could be a long wait just like how long the EVFTA has been stalled. Brexit negotiations have been underway since June 19, 2017. Hopefully—for the benefit of the Southeast Asian country—it will come into effect in 2020. This is in view of the new withdrawal date (January 31) that was set on October 28, 2019.

It was predicted that the UK would vote on activating the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement in January, 2020. However, in view of the aforementioned withdrawal date, it seems the vote will come in later months. The possibility of it happening in later years cannot be ruled out.

Vietnam cannot keep its economic plans tied to the much awaited EVFTA and Brexit. It may have to consider other options: taking its desire to establish cooperative agreements elsewhere.

Ways to Keep the Environment Clean and Safe

At a very early age, we start learning about our environment and the effects of pollution on nature and climate. We have been told time to time to sustain the resources and keeping the environment clean. People feel it is not one man’s job to take care of the environment, but the reality is that every bit counts. Here are some of the self help techniques which can keep the environment safe and clean.

Clean

Start your own small revolution

Creating awareness about the effects of pollution is the first thing that everyone should do. Teaching each other about the good and bad of using products which are harmful to nature is how the revolution will begin. It does not need to kick start on a big scale. Telling your family members and friend about it and spreading the word in a peaceful and more mature manner is the way to do it. Create blog posts, sign petitions, connect with your leaders to solve the environmental issues faced by people.

Refuse single use items

If the products you buy are not recyclable, refuse to purchase them. It might hurt your comfort at first, but a little sacrifice will help in saving nature. Plastic items like cups, bags, straws and disposable razors are some of the examples of single-use products. All of these things will only turn in waste and nothing more. Replace these products with reusable and recyclable products to create a much cleaner surrounding. The only way to avoid these products is to refuse them even before they enter your life.

Buy local food, eat plants, and dispost food waste

Many diseases occue due to open littering and decomposing of food waste. This attracts flies and maggots, which then causes a lot of diseases. Also, if you buy food products which are grown locally, you will be helping in a lot of ways. You are reducing the transportation, processing, and packaging of the products which will save a lot of fossil fuel as well as avoid harmful chemicals over the vegetables and plastic use. You can have a healthy diet with fresh vegetables everyday.

Plant trees to retain the soil

The very reason why the hills and mountains face landslides and erosion is that the trees are being cut, which is weakening the layers. Green areas in out cities are a vital part of the society. With the growing industrialization, the tress is being cut down every day. It is not only affecting the soil, but also the oxygen content in the air and the temperature of the place. It will support flora and fauna of the place.

Conserve water

There are different ways of saving water which varies from sustainable usage to rain water harvesting. There is a lot of industrial waste getting dumped in water every day.

Soon the condition will be worse than getting not getting drinking water at home. It will be difficult to get clean water if the same careless behaviours of industries and ourselves continue.
