Provincial Road (PR) 826B (in Can Duoc district) - one of the works in "the Program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" in the province

Long An Department of Planning and Investment informed that basic construction investment in the province has been implemented as planned from the beginning of the year until now. Accordingly, "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve the industrial development in the key economic region" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress (term 2015-2020) continue to be focused, urgently implemented and disbursed its capital as planned from the beginning of the year.

Accordingly, the total basic construction capital as planned in 2019 in the province is 4,246 billion VND. In which, the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion and the basic construction capital allocated and managed by the districts is nearly VND 1,295 billion.

For the basic construction capital managed by the province is over VND 2,951 billion, the value of the volume implemented about VND 1,325 billion in the first 5 months of 2019, reaching 44.9 percent of the plan, equaling 118 percent in value and equal to 91.2 percent of the rate over the same period. The disbursement value for 5 months is about VND 1,275 billion, reaching 43.2 percent of the plan, 116 percent in value and 89.5 percent of the rate in comparison with the same period.

According to the assessment, although the provincial leaders directed as well as the investors urged and disbursed the capital from the beginning of the year, the volume of implementation and disbursement of some projects is slow compared to the plan. The reason is that the National Target Program is allocated in the middle of March 2019, so investors have not implemented and disbursed yet. In addition, new construction projects in 2019 started to apply online bidding, so investors were embarrassed in the early months of the year. However, most of the works have completed the bidding work until now and prepared to start construction in June 2019.

Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can directs the task-assigned departments to focus on "The program for mobilizing all resources to build transport infrastructure to serve industrial development in key economic regions" and 3 key projects under the Resolution of the 10th provincial Party Congress, term 2015 - 2020.

Simultaneously, the task-assigned departments continue to urge investors to urgently implement and disburse capital plans when the volume is eligible for payment; they regularly monitor the progress of implementation to promptly remove difficulties and problems arising./.

Effectiveness from high-tech application on rice at Vinh Thuan CooperativeEffectiveness from high-tech application on rice at Vinh Thuan Cooperative
From 2016 until now, the production applied high technology on rice at Vinh Thuan Cooperative in Vinh Thuan commune, Vinh Hung district, Long An province has initially brought positive effectiveness.

Farmers visit.jpg

Farmers visit high-tech application model to level the field by laser beam 

Vinh Thuan Cooperative implemented a pilot model with a scale of 50 hectares including 6 participating households. These households are supported seeds with high quality, suitable to local consumption requirements, fertilizing according to rice growth and using organic fertilizer and improving soil to reduce chemical fertilizer.

According to an official of Vinh Hung district Farmer Association - Le Quoc Bon, this model helps to increase income for farmers. Although productivity is lower than that of mass-produced rice outside, the committed price is higher due to the quality assurance products and the requirements of enterprises.

The application of high-tech model brings many positive results. Technically, households use varieties of certified rice, sparse sowing (from 100-120 kilogram per hectare); apply  method of Integrated Pests Management (IPM); use green mushroom preparations to control brown planthoppers; fertilize according to rice growth; treat disease according to 4-right principle. 100 percent of farmers respond to the record of the field diary. On the dans of rice fields, flowers are planted to attract natural enemies and create a beautiful look for the fields.

Economically, the application of technical measures "1 must, 5 reduce", the application of synchronous mechanics in producing and linking enterprises to consume output products contributes to reduce average production costs to 1 - 1.5 million VND per hectare; profit increased by 5 - 6.5 million VND per hectare.

Additionally, uniform movement of the seed helps reduce pest pressure. The model is a core to replicate the high-tech application region, creating quality rice for export requirements.

Besides, the model also encountered some difficulties in implementation. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen propaganda; organizing practical tours and technical training for farmers; have mechanisms and policies to encourage and support farmers and enterprises to invest in agriculture and forestry. Simultaneously, building a large-scale field system to step by step establish the agricultural production regions and follow VietGAP process, contributing to improving the productivity and quality of agricultural products./.

Secretary of Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh assessed that compensation, site clearance and resettlement have not met the requirements yet.

At this symposium, Secretary of Provincial Party Committee requested that units, localities and executive committees of the party hierarchy frankly recognized the limitations. Since then, solutions have been implemented and corrected to create a transformation in the coming time. 2019 will be a breakthrough year in compensation, site clearance and resettlement.

He asked the provincial People's Committee to assign and specify tasks and direct drastically for each department, sector and locality in the implementation of compensation, site clearance and resettlement. The key projects need to clearly identify requirements and set the time for implementation. Projects must be transparent about planning, implementation schedule and progress so that people can monitor to avoid long-lasting price appraisal and distraint.

Besides, the whole political system must take part in propaganda on compensation, site clearance, resettlement which creates smooth understanding and consensus to implement the project. To continue strengthening and consolidating the Land Clearance Board and the force of distraining and applying land compensation prices to meet the task requirements, it must be professional, objective and honest in performing tasks. The participants must have proper roles when conducting to determine and appraise compensation prices for land clearance.

In addition, the Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee also noted that we must regularly review investors implementing projects; If the project is carried out slowly, deliberately, long-lasting and causing pressing, a solution must have been done. Real estate is paid attention and directed, controlled and handled violations strictly. The Secretary and Chairman of People's Committees at district and commune level must well meet and talk dialogue with the people. Through these, the legitimate requirements of the people must be resolved quickly and promptly.
