Apple Inc customers will soon have more choices as the company looks to reduce long wait times for iPhone repairs at its retail stores.

Business Beat (07-08-2006) How do we get tourists to come back again? by Nguyen Van Cam A meeting of representatives from the tourism industry last week came to the conclusion that the sector could not take off unless it had a clear-cut strategy and thorough co-operation among key players. Although Viet Nam realises that it has to develop diversified products to attract different kinds of tourists, the efforts are done piecemeal, without long-term planning and fixed objectives.
