Reporting on Hung Yen’s achievements, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Do Tien Sy said last year, the province collected 1.2 trillion VND (52.86 million USD) for the state budget, 13 percent higher than the set target. The industry made up 51 percent of the local economic structure, when Hung Yen was striving to become an industrial province in the near future.

Furthermore, in 2017, Hung Yen attracted 255 investment projects, equivalent to the total number recorded in the previous three years. According to Mr. Sy, Hung Yen also paid due attention to the building of the Party and political system, as well as stepping up the communications, mass mobilisation, examination work, and attraction of young intellectuals to localities.

Applauding Hung Yen’s performances, General Secretary Trong said he can see the reform and development of Hung Yen whenever he visits the province. He offered Tet greetings and hoped that the Party organisation, administration and people of Hung Yen will maintain solidarity and local traditions, further its accomplishments and experience in order to build a developed and wealthy province.

Also on February 19, the Party leader and a large number of local residents attended a ceremony in Hien Nam ward of Hung Yen city to launch the tree planting festival.

The tree planting festival was initiated by late President Ho Chi Minh in the spring of 1960. Since then, it has become a cultural practice in every spring with a view to improving the environment and greening the country.

In Hung Yen, the tree planting festival is an annual activity which has received warm response from local people. In 2017, 620,300 trees were planted across the province, including more than 590,000 longan, lychee, orange, grapefruit and tangerine trees.

The spring tree planting movement has helped encourage agricultural restructuring and gear local agriculture towards large-scale crop production, thereby greatly contributing to the province’s socio-economic development.

The same day, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong had laid a wreath at the statue of late Party General Secretary Nguyen Van Linh, who made significant contributions to the country’s revolution and reform, in Hien Nam ward of Hung Yen city.

He also visited and extended Tet greetings to workers of the Hung Long II Garment Joint Stock Company in Lam Son ward of Hung Yen city.
