His dispatch was sent to the secretaries of the Parties committees and the chairpersons of the People’s Committees of the provinces of Quang Binh, Ha Tinh, Nghe An and Thanh Hoa in the central region, along with Ninh Binh, Nam Dinh, Thai Binh, Hai Duong, and Hung Yen in the north. It was also sent to the First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, as well as the chairpersons and general directors of the Vietnam Electricity (EVN) group and the National Power Transmission Corporation (EVNNPT).

According to the dispatch, the Circuit-3 500kV power transmission line from Quang Trach of Quang Binh to Pho Noi of Hung Yen is one of the nationally important projects as it is critical to guaranteeing national energy security, helping improve the transmission capacity of the national power system, and ensuring power supply for the northern region during the peak period of 2024 and beyond.

To ensure the project is completed before June 30, the EVN and EVNNPT has deployed nearly 10,000 personnel working around the clock in the nine provinces this line traverses.

To further accelerate progress and better ensure workers’ living and working conditions, PM Chinh demanded the provinces’ Party and administration leaders direct local authorities and related agencies to mobilise available resources, give maximum support, and create all necessary conditions for investors, contractors, construction units to ensure the best logistics, living, and moving conditions for the personnel.

The secretaries of provincial Party committees and the Youth Union Central Committee need to order local youth union chapters to work closely with investors and construction units to marshal local young people to help with construction.

Besides, the EVN and EVNNPT have to direct their forces to carry out the project in scientific and effective manner, frequently conduct examination and supervision to ensure progress and quality, coordinate with local administrations and police to guarantee security and safety, while ensuring labour safety and environmental hygiene, the Government leader requested.
