The conference was connected with sites in other eight provinces where the transmission line runs through.

The 500kV power line connects the central province of Quang Binh and the northern province of Hung Yen, running through seven other localities in between.

It consists of four component subprojects, with a total length of 519km and a total investment of nearly 909 million USD. Its construction began in late December 2023.

Speaking at the event, PM Chinh said that electricity is essential to people’s lives and to national socio-economic development. Therefore, sufficient electricity for production, business and consumption is a must.

The Quang Trach-Pho Noi power transmission line is an urgent key national project that plays an important role in the country’s energy security, especially the northern region, and requires the engagement of ministries, departments and authorities of localities where the line runs through. The project is set to be completed in June 2024.

He directed relevant ministries and agencies to coordinate and follow the project schedule, ensuring construction quality and techniques, labour and environmental safety, and avoiding corruption and misconduct.

Provincial Party Committee Secretaries and People’s Committee Chairpersons are assigned to address project-related issues according to their authority.

Deputy PM Tran Hong Ha and Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Hong Dien, alongside leaders of relevant departments, will hold monthly meetings to review, accelerate project progress and design provincial-level plans.

PM Chinh added that local resources should be mobilised for project implementation, which will generate joint efforts while creating employment opportunities for local residents at project sites.

He also emphasised strengthening communications activities to raise awareness among people on the significance of the project to national interests, local development and citizens themselves.
