During her trip to the southernmost province of Ca Mau to inspect the coastal erosion situation in the area of alluvial embankment in Ngoc Hien district’s Dat Mui commune, the top legislator said landslides have resulted in the loss of critical protection forests due to adverse impacts from waves and high tide.

She underlined the importance of raising public awareness on the work, as well as promptly building relevant database and tightening the management of activities in riverside and coastal areas that increase the risk of landslides.

NA Chairwoman Ngan asked local authorities to modernise the monitoring work, continue to build projects to prevent and overcome consequences of landslides, and promote the application of science and technology in the erosion prevention work.

On the same day afternoon, the leader visited several economic establishments in the locality, asked local authorities to create favourable conditions for farmers and businesses to promote their aquaculture activities and aquatic product processing. The NA will consider adjusting the legal provisions to suit the local practical situation, she affirmed.
