Natural disasters happen everywhere unpredictably; there is not much that we can do about it yet. However, deaths caused by preventable accidents are among the most disheartening to me. In Vietnam, preventable accidents are the cause of more than 10,000 deaths every year. This number is unnecessarily high and has caused more than just pain and grieves for the ones who are involved and their families. Every year, Vietnam loses 10,000 productive members of society who could be among the brightest of the nation and who could bring improvements to Vietnam.

To improve this situation, there are lots of steps to be taken. However, the first step must be understanding the problem. This suggests that the more data we have, the better we can analyze and improve the situation. Let’s take a look at some of the available statistics done by the professors at the University of Transportation and Communication in Vietnam:
The statistics only show some preliminary looks at Vietnam and its infrastructure problem. This could be a great opportunity for some consulting firm to construct data and for investors to invest in Vietnam’s infrastructure since a lot of other businesses are looking for expansion in Vietnam at the moment.
