At the workshop, members from the community supervision boards of the Cau Ngoi project based in Khanh Hai town, Van Hai ward, and Thanh Hai commune, and in other localities were informed with details about the project’s scope, the construction methods and the construction progress.
This project will have total investment capital of VND162 billion ($7.17 million) which largely comes from the Belgian government’s budget. Part of it will be from the Vietnamese state coffers.
Independent consultancy units and contractors also provided detailed information about the project activities. Representatives of the community supervision boards suggested that attention be paid to labour safety and environmental protection during the implementation of the project, to avoid negative impacts on the local community. The contractors promised to apply best-practice approaches to ensure safety and environmental protection for the neighboring community.
Addressing the workshop, Nguyen Van Hoa, chairman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front in the province’s Phan Rang-Thap Cham city, highly valued the detailed information provided to the locals, so that people can conduct their supervision activities. He also suggested that specific oversight plans be made as soon as possible.
