Concluding the conclusion, on behalf of the delegation, Mr. Nghi emphasized that the delegation will acquire recommendations of localities and consider them for timely answers and specific instructions. He also noted that all localities have many key transportation projects and need to pay attention to ensuring quality and speeding up progress. They also needed to focus on removing difficulties, supporting businesses, promoting investment promotion and expanding export markets.

Mr. Nghi also noted that in implementing key projects and works, attention should be paid to site clearance, compensation and resettlement for people to ensure progress. Particularly, projects transferring land use rights must ensure related financial obligations under the regulations. He requested localities to speed up the progress of urban planning, construction planning and specialized planning such as solar power, car charging stations as a basis to submit to ministries and sectors for consideration and approval. Regarding social housing development, the Government is implementing a policy on building 1 million units by 2030, with 130,000 units developed in 2024. According to him, this will be an extremely difficult task, so localities need to focus on implementation to contribute to achieving the best results.

Mr. said that after the working session, the delegation will further review and acquire recommendations from localities to provide specific answers and instructions, contributing to clearing bottlenecks and creating conditions for Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Tien Giang provinces to take advantage of their advantages and potential to accelerate and contribute to the development of the whole country.

Binh Duong also proposed that the province is facing many difficulties in terms of staff. Binh Duong has ranked 6th, 3rd  and 3rd nationwide in population, number of businesses, foreign investment, respectively, but ranked 53rd in staff. The unreasonableness between the workload and the number of assigned staff has affected the progress, quality of processing work, administrative procedures for people and businesses.
