Hoa Binh proposed the Deputy PM consider the provision of 420 billion VND (18.5 million USD) in financial support for the evacuation and resettlement of disaster-hit families, and another 340 billion VND (15 million USD) for addressing landslides in the areas of Ong Tuong Hill and National Highway 6.

Further briefing on local situation, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Bui Van Tinh asked the Deputy PM, ministries and central agencies to further support his province to stablise the life of people displaced from Hoa Binh Lake and pay compensation to residents who moved their houses to serve the construction of Road 12B.

At the working session, Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung recognised local socio-economic attainments, noting that Hoa Binh has summoned efforts to address serious natural disaster consequences, thus helping local people ease pain and losses. It has also paid attention to economic restructuring and applied multiple models to tap its potential to boost development.

He said in the time ahead, the province needs to keep close coordination with ministries and central agencies to overhaul and update the plans for each sector. It should associate its development plans with the overall development of the Capital City Region, press on with economic restructuring, and optimise potential to create new development driving forces. Particularly, the province should capitalise on its potential for industry, agriculture and services so as to make master plans for the short, medium and long terms. 

It is necessary to adapt the planning of residential areas to the natural disaster prevention and climate change response programme while keeping attention to the settlement of disaster aftermath, the construction of resettlement areas, and ensuring long-term livelihoods for locals. Hoa Binh also needs to step up the response to the severe cold to ensure agricultural activities.

Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung assigned relevant ministries to work closely with Hoa Binh to promptly assess landslide risks to work out solutions and take measures to deal with the landslide-hit areas in Ong Tuong Hill and National Highway 6.

As part of his working visit, Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung visited and presented Tet gifts to people of Khanh hamlet in Phu Cuong commune, Tan Lac district. He also inspected the expanded area of Hoa Binh Hydropower Plant and a landslide-hit area in Ong Tuong Hill of Hoa Binh city./.
