Japan hands over funds to build new primary school

In Uncategorized on August 5, 2010 at 7:20 am

A signing ceremony took place yesterday between the Government of Japan and the People’s Committee of An Vien Commune to build a primary school in Tien Lu District of the northern province Hung Yen.

Japanese Ambassador Mitsuo Sakaba handed over US$90,842 to Do Ngoc Thanh, Chairman of the People’s Committee of An Vien Commune on August 4 at the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam.


An Vien Commune Primary School has no solid classrooms due to local socio-economic constraints and has borrowed rooms from the commune’s temple and nearby secondary school.


However, the temple’s rooms are also seriously degraded, and have no lighting systems, making it dark inside even during daytime, which affects the health and safety of pupils. In the secondary school, primary pupils and secondary pupils are learning half a day only, which is inadequate. Meanwhile, their parents’ average annual income is US$418; the commune’s poverty rate is 19 percent; therefore, they cannot financially support renovations the school requires.


Under this circumstance, the People’s Committee of An Vien Commune planned to construct a new six-classroom building. The Government of Japan decided to grant the aid necessary to purchase materials for the project.
 
At the ceremony, Ambassador Sakaba expressed his hopes that the educational environment in An Vien Commune would improve markedly and further the friendship and mutual understanding between Japan and Vietnam.

QĐND – Tuesday, August 03, 2010, 21:15 (GMT+7)

The Government will provide money in advance for the building of student accommodation approved for 2010-11.


Government Office document 211/TB-VPCP says the pre-payment is primarily intended to ensure the projects are completed on schedule.


The Government has also agreed to transfer VND59.5 billion (US$3 million) for 44 Construction Ministry-approved student-accommodation projects.


And Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has asked the municipal administrations of Ha Noi and HCM City to provide scheduled moneys in advance for projects that he has approved.


The payments will be refunded from next year’s State budget, says the document.


The document says Planning and Investment Minister Vo Hong Phuc has been asked to co-ordinate with the Construction and Finance Ministries to complete a list of student-accommodation projects for 2011-15 that have been given prime ministerial approval but which have not been included in capital allotments for 2010.


The list will go to the National Assembly Standing Committee.


The Construction Ministry has been asked to co-ordinate with the Education and Training, the Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Planning and Investment and the Finance Ministries together with relevant agencies to complete a list of proposed projects that are to be financed from the sale of government bonds in 2011-15 for the prime minister’s approval.

The fund will be used to construct a new building (6 classrooms) for two schools in in nothern Province of Nam Dinh and central Province of Ha Tinh in order to improve the local educational environment, eradicate the practice of learning in shifts and increase learning hours for pupils.


Dong Hai Primary School is in Gia Pho Commune – a mountainous area near the Laos border in Ha Tinh Province of Central Vietnam, where natural conditions are very severe with 4~6 storms every year and 24 percent of the total population, (7500 people 1870 households) are poor and 35% are ethnic minorities.


The Hien Khanh Commune Primary School of Hien Khanh Commune in the northern province of Nam Dinh, which has an 18.5 percent poverty rate and average annual income of only US$200, has been repaired many times since its establishment in 1968 and present day.


Ambassador Sakaba said at the meeting: “I hope that through this project funded by the Government of Japan, the educational environment in Gia Pho Commune will improve markedly. I also hope that through this project, the friendship and mutual understanding between Japan and Vietnam will be further deepened.”

Italy funds technology transfer project


QĐND – Thursday, June 17, 2010, 20:57 (GMT+7)

Opportunities are open for Vietnamese small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to receive technology transferred from Italian partners in a 3 million Euro project funded by the Italian Government. 


The project, co-sponsored by the Enterprise Development Department under the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), kick-started in 2009 to tap potential of enterprises from the two countries. 


Italian Ambassador Andrea Perugini said at a workshop in Hanoi on June 16 that Italian business circles have advantages in product designing and quality, as well as marketing skills and mastery of technology in various industries. Meanwhile, Vietnamese enterprises can offer abundant workforce and low-cost labour, he pointed out. 


These elements have revealed a prospect of win-win cooperation, said the Italian diplomat, adding that Italian enterprises would take this opportunity to effectively transfer technology and experiences to Vietnamese partners.
