Given that I’ve been rather active in Vietnam for the past 6 years, I think it’ll be an interesting exercise for me to include a SITN for news from VN companies. As with the Thai ones, it’ll keep me on my toes, and perhaps you’ll get something out of it.

      A simple company news summary isn’t easy to come across, most of the time, its just registration of share buy/sells which is rather boring…
