Mr. Nguyen Hong Dien - Deputy Secretary of  Party Committee, Chairman of People's Committee of Thai Binh province said that, in 2017, the gross regional domestic product (GRDP) of the province increased by 11.12%, production value increased by 11.15% compared to 2016. This is also the 2nd consecutive year that the province's economy has achieved double-figured growth rate and has been one of the three provinces gaining the highest growth in the Red River Delta region.

In order to gain such achievement, the province received a really effective support from Vietnam Electricity and the Northern Power Corporation. The Party Committee, People's Council, People's Committee of Thai Binh province would like to thank and highly appreciate the interest and coordination made by the group.

Thai Binh PPC also asks EVN and its member units to accelerate the progress of power projects being implemented in the province; including the construction of medium-voltage lines to supply power for Tien Hai Industrial Park invested by Viglacera Corporation.

In addition, it is proposed that the Power sector considers undergrounding the power system in Thai Binh city to ensure the urban landscape, contributing to early making Thai Binh city into Urban area of type I.

Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Duong Quang Thanh affirmed that EVN has always directed the Northern Power Corporation (EVNNPC) and Thai Binh Power Company to meet the demand on power supply for socio-economic development, particularly in new economic and industrial zones of the province.

EVN's leaders also proposed Thai Binh province to work with investors to smoothly coordinate with the power sector in order to avoid the power projects being completed, but not yet operated by the investors.

For undergrounding power grid, EVN assigns EVNNPC to coordinate with the locality to research and report the most optimal resolution option to the group. At the same time, Thai Binh PPC is proposed to consider and arrange capital investment source to underground or implement the power grids in the form of socialization.

EVN also agrees with Thai Binh PPC on the proposal of constructing a thermal power plant in the province invested by Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Corporation to ensure power supply security to the northern power system in general and northern region of the Red River in particular in the coming period.

In the past years, the power grid system in Thai Binh province has been invested and constructed by the power sector in accordance with the planning; ensuring safe and stable power supply. Currently, together with 110kV power projects, EVN/EVNNPC has also continually arranged capital for Thai Binh Power Company to invest, construct and upgrade medium-voltage power grid from 10kV grid to 22kV and 35kV ones as the set roadmap.
