The corporation has completed the inspection of fire prevention and safety at transformer stations while sending a number of specialised vehicles and electricians to support the city to quickly deal with any situations, he added. 

The year 2017 sees the second time Vietnam has played host to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum after 19 years of membership. 

This demonstrates high trust the international community has given to Vietnam and features the country’s strategic vision on the future of the Asian-Pacific region, according to President Tran Dai Quang. 

Through the host of APEC 2017, Vietnam also looks to enhance friendship and partnership with other member economies. Vietnamese businesses have more opportunities to establish ties with the world’s leading partners. 

During the event, Vietnam expects to welcome around 10,000 delegates, including leaders of 21 APEC member economies, over 2,000 leading corporate executives and nearly 3,000 reporters in the region and the world.
