Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on Jan. 30 witnessed the inauguration of key projects in the southernmost province of Ca Mau.
The newly completed projects are the Ca Mau fertiliser plant, Dam Cung bridge and a memorial complex to President Ho Chi Minh.
The Ca Mau fertiliser plant officially turned out its first products on the same day, after 40 months of construction.
The plant, built at a cost of 780 million USD, is a part of the complex of Ca Mau Gas-Electricity-Fertiliser. It is a key national project and is expected to ensure a stable supply of fertiliser for the country by 2025.
The plant has a capacity of 800,000 tonnes of urea fertiliser a year, meeting about 40 percent of the country’s demand.
The plant is the final component of the Ca Mau Gas-Electricity-Fertiliser complex, contributing to generating a combined industrial value of over 34 trillion VND and nearly 1,200 jobs.
Prime Minister Dung stressed the significance of the plant to the country’s agricultural sector. He asked Ca Mau province, Vietnam Oil and Gas Group and the Management Board of the industrial complex to continue to care for local people’s lives, especially the more than 1,400 households which had to relocate to make way for the fertiliser plant.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Dam Cung bridge, PM Dung said the bridge is very important to the province and the southwestern region as it links the south and the north of the province and is the last point to access Ho Chi Minh Highway from the southernmost parts of the country.
The bridge has a length of 668 metres and a width of 12m. It was built at a cost of over 350 billion VND (16.6 million USD).
Meanwhile, a memorial complex to President Ho Chi Minh was inaugurated as a place for local people, especially young people, to learn about revolutionary tradition.
The complex includes a worship room, a movie house, and a showroom of documents, photos and objects relating to President Ho Chi Minh./.
