In addition, Lo Mai Trinh expressed her desire the city would continue to promote investment projects in tourism, education, commercial banks as well as encourage districts to support poor provinces as Dien Bien province.

Marking the 40 anniversary of Reunification Day on April 30, 2015, Dien Bien province hoped that city will support the province to kick off a photography exhibition on Dien Bien Phu Historical Victory in Ho Chi Minh City, Ms. Lo Mai Trinh added.

On behalf of city leaders, Secretary Le Thanh Hai praised Dien Dien’s achievements and expressed his desire the province would overcome difficulties, challenges to develop the province.

City will continue to create best favorable conditions to attract investment into Dien Bien because the province has a great economic potential for development of inter-border trade, hydroelectric industry, tourism and industrial tree crops such as rubber, tea and coffee, added the city’s Party leader.
