NINH THUAN — The construction of a water pipeline to improve the living conditions of 189 households began today in Lam Son Commune in the southern Ninh Thuan Province's Ninh Son District.

The pipeline's construction is an important part of a project to develop the agricultural value chain in Ninh Thuan Province. It is being built with a non-refundable US$2-million fund from the Republic of Korea.

"We expect to improve the living conditions and increase the incomes of the local people in efforts to reduce the poverty rate to below 20 per cent in the region," Korea International Co-operation Agency (KOICA) representative Shin Eui Chul said.

The project aims to improve the environment, promote agricultural self-reliance and increase the sources of agricultural income for local farmers.

Under the framework of the project, the CJ Group will support local farmers in planting and buying chillies in Ninh Thuan Province.

The project has been set up under a public and private partnership model between the government of Korea and the CJ Group through the Korea International Co-operation Agency. — VNS
