HA NOI (VNS)– Around 80,000 local residents will benefit from a new US$4.5 million water supply system in Buon Ho Town, Dak Lac Province.
The Korea International Co-operation Agency (KOICA)-funded construction will generate 5,600 cubic metres of safe water per day for local residents and help advance the town's process of socio-economic development, said Resident Representative of KOICA Kim In.
Only 30 per cent of residents of Buon Ho Town have access to safe water, while the remainder has to use water from the polluted river or wells. The province has nearly 1.8 million people, of which around 31 per cent belong to ethnic minority groups. – VNS
