DAK LAK – The Government of Denmark will provide VND40 billion (US$1.9 million) in aid to promote rural development in remote areas of Tay Nguyen's (Central Highlands) Dak Lak Province this year.
The project aims at the sustainable development of agricultural production, raising the living standard of local residents and protecting the environment.
A water supply system will also be built to ensure sufficient water supplies for daily needs and production.
Financial assistance will be offered to remote districts with poorly-developed infrastructure such as Krong Bong, Lak, M'Drak, Ea H'leo.
Last year, the Government of Denmark provided VND14.6 billion ($696,000) to the province for the rural development programme. – VNS
