The hills and mountains in the Central Highlands, plus scattered populations in remote areas, make it extremely challenging to distribute clean water to the community for daily use. In order to maintain sanitation and medical safety for citizens here, the local authorities have determinedly mobilized all possible resources to fulfill the task.
The People's Committee of Dak Lak Province, on August 10, said that it had recently issued a document requesting departments and localities to proactively respond to large-scale heavy rains occurring in the province.
The Central Highlands has over 5 million hectares of agricultural land. The agricultural development here has many advantages, but the situation of “bumper crops, low prices” and “bad harvest, high prices” occurs in many places. Sometimes, agricultural products even face stagnancy in consumption.
The provinces of Central Highlands so far have received investments in hundreds of projects for socio-economic development. Sadly, many of them are still behind schedule or not even launched yet, wreaking havoc on residents’ life.
Even though the Prime Minister has ordered a closure to Central Highlands forests for a long time, it is a fact that the forests here are being encroached from different directions. Statistics reveal that the total surface area of these forests is only 2.5 million hectares, and the situation is getting worse.
The Southeast provinces of Vietnam have a promising socio-economic development rate; yet, it is the current transport network here that has prevented the region from reaching its fullest potential. It is high time the localities cooperated to address this congestion for a better future.
The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Lam Dong Province said that in the first two days of the four-day holiday, the Central Highlands province and its city Da Lat welcomed about 65,000 visitors, including 1,000 international visitors.
