Update: April, 25/2013 - 09:54

TUYEN QUANG (VNS)— The northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang will spend over VND6 billion (around US$300,000) to relocate 166 local families who are living in special-use or protected forests near areas prone to landslides.

Ha Van Ngac, an official from the province's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province had asked local authorities to create jobs for displaced residents so that they could soon settle down.

The city also plans to remove those affected by the operation of Tuyen Quang Hydro Power Plant to safer place with the total expense of over VND300 billion ($14 million). — VNS
