NDO – The Korean Government has provided the northern province of Tuyen Quang with US$15 million in non-refundable aid for a rural development programme.

On May 11, the People's Committee of Tuyen Quang Province held an inauguration ceremony for the medical station of Vinh Loi commune in Son Duong district.

This is the first project to be completed within the framework of the Tuyen Quang Province Rural Development Project, as funded by the Republic of Korea (ROK) through the Office of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in Vietnam.

Chairman of the People's Committee of Tuyen Quang Province, Nguyen Van Son, along with Korean Ambassador to Vietnam, Park Noh Wan, KOICA Country Director in Vietnam, Cho Han-Deog and other participants cut the ribbon to inaugurate the facility.

The project is expected to contribute to improving the quality of medical examination and treatment and primary health care for local people at the grassroots level.

In addition to the Vinh Loi Commune health station, there are also two other commune clinics, six schools, one inter-commune road, seven inter-village roads, and three irrigation works that are currently under construction and preparing to invest as planned under the ROK-supported project.

With a total investment of US$15 million, the Tuyen Quang Rural Development Programme focuses on empowering women, improving sustainable livelihoods, building capacity and improving the quality of healthcare and education, towards comprehensive and sustainable development in difficult communes across Tuyen Quang, as well as improving the quality of life of local people.

On the occasion, the provincial leaders had a meeting with the Korean side, during which they shared information about Tuyen Quang’s socio-economic achievements in recent years, including the value of the support from the Korean side.
