Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee Le Van Han giving directive speech

In his directive speech, Chairman Le Van Han commended the notable achievements in December and throughout 2023 in the socio-economic domain. Addressing the focal tasks for January 2024, he urged branches and localities to promptly execute the resolutions of the Government, the Provincial Party Committee, the Provincial People's Council, and the plans of the Provincial People's Committee concerning socio-economic development and budgetary estimates for 2024. The emphasis is on implementing the recommendations and proposals put forth by the Provincial People's Council Delegates and Committees during the 12th session of the Provincial People's Council, term X.

For the agricultural sector, particular attention should be given to the completion of winter-spring rice cultivation for 2023-2024 according to the seasonal schedule. Additionally, tasks to address the risks of drought, water shortages, and saltwater intrusion should be promptly carried out. Regarding the construction of new rural areas, there is an urgent need to finalize all documents for the Central Government's recognition of Tra Cu district meeting new rural standards. Meanwhile, Cau Ke and Tieu Can districts should strive to attain advanced new rural standards. Plans for the implementation of the new rural development program in 2024 should be developed, with a focus on fulfilling the three criteria for new rural provinces that are yet to be met.

In addition, preparations for activities celebrating the Party and the Year of the Dragon in 2024 need to be meticulous. The effective execution of initiatives to care for and visit policy families, individuals with meritorious services, and those in difficult circumstances during the festive season is crucial. There should be a concerted effort to implement a peak operation to suppress crime, ensuring security and order during the Lunar New Year of the Dragon in 2024. Adequate preparation for the selection and enlistment of citizens into the army is imperative, along with the well-organized execution of the "Military and Civilian Tet" activity in 2024.
