Moreover, significant progress was made in job creation, resulting in over 1,800 new jobs in the month. Additionally, 148 workers were sent abroad for a specified period. Cultural and artistic activities, exhibitions, social security initiatives, and visits were organized in commemoration of the 48th anniversary of the Liberation of the South and the reunification of the country (April 30, 1975 - April 30, 2023). Social order and safety were ensured, with a focus on preventing and combating various types of crime. Preparations for defensive area drills at the provincial level were carried out expeditiously, with a commitment to quality and adherence to the schedule.

However, despite these positive developments, Tra Vinh province still faces some challenges, such as ongoing efforts to control African swine fever, lower rice yield and production compared to the same period last year, and the need to improve the disbursement of public investment capital and national target programs. Additionally, there has been an increase in traffic accidents.

Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee Le Van Han delivered a speech

Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, Le Van Han, has directed several key tasks for June. He instructed the Department of Planning and Investment to collaborate with the Office of the Provincial People's Committee to promptly assess the progress of socio-economic development in the preliminary meeting for the first half of the year. They are also urged to urgently prepare the necessary materials for submission to the mid-year meeting of the 10th Provincial People's Council. One of the main areas of focus is disease prevention in plants and animals. Moreover, there is a need to expedite the disbursement of public investment projects.

Furthermore, it is essential for local authorities to effectively manage and organize the 2023 High School Graduation Exam, ensuring its strict adherence to regulations and maintaining a serious atmosphere. They should also review and expedite the achievement of targets related to labor export, health insurance, and social insurance. It is crucial to closely monitor the situation of the Covid-19 epidemic and other potential diseases. Additionally, efforts should be made to address complaints and denunciations effectively. The provincial level should be prepared to conduct defensive area drills with a focus on ensuring efficiency, quality, and absolute safety.

During the meeting, leaders from various departments, branches, and localities provided their opinions on several matters to be prepared for submission to the mid-2023 meeting of the X-th Provincial People's Council.
