Binh Thuan prioritizes fresh water construction investment for the ethnic minority

BTO – A system of fresh water is projected to be invested in the remaining ethnic minority communes in Binh Thuan province in the 2021-2025 period, said Vice chairman of the provincial People’s committee Le Tuan Phong.

Fresh water is precious in the ethnic minority regions

Currently, a total of 16 communes of pure ethnic minority groups and 32 hamlets of intermingled ethnic minorities have accessed to fresh water system, excepting some communes in La Da.

Due to difficulties in financial backings since 2016, the upgradation and expansion of fresh water systems seem to be halted, affecting to demands for using fresh water of the ethnic community.

Therefore, the water supply construction has been prioritized in rural areas so far, especially in the ethnic minority regions. As of late 2018, the ratio of ethnic minority people, who access to fresh water system, hits 96.1 percent.
