This is a system of works under the Rural Bridge Program of Vietnam Rural Magazine, funded by the former State President - Truong Tan Sang, who mobilized the Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade of Vietnam - Vietinbank. The system of works includes 2 bridges and 2 culverts with a capacity of 8 tons, the total construction funding is 3 billion VND. Thanh Hoa district budget also invested 6 billion VND and people donated land, contributed trees and crops to connect the route from National Highway N2 to Thuan Binh commune.

Mr. Ngo Van Son (a resident of Tra Cu hamlet, Thuan Binh commune) excitedly said: "In the past, it was difficult and inconvenient for people to travel, thanks to the former State President - Truong Tan Sang mobilizing to build bridges with heavy loads. The city and the district have invested in making a spacious road, which not only meets the needs of people for traveling, transporting goods and agricultural products by 4-wheel vehicles, but it also makes the appearance of the countryside more prosperous”.

It is known that in the past 5 years, former State President - Truong Tan Sang has mobilized sponsors to build 36 bridges and culverts with a capacity of 5 tons or more on the borderline of Thanh Hoa district with a total cost of 36 billion VND over the past 5 years. As a result, the transport infrastructure system will be increasingly improved, contributing to creating a premise and driving force for socio-economic development, ensuring national defense and security in localities.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Secretary of the District Party Committee, Chairman of the District People's Committee - Ho Thi Ngoc Lan sincerely thanked former State President - Truong Tan Sang and sponsors. She affirmed: "Thanks to many border programs of the former State President - Truong Tan Sang and the companionship of many donor agencies, the socio-economic development of the two border communes of Thanh Hoa district is growing. The poor households have decreased markedly, from 5.56 percent in 2015 to now to 1.35 percent.

In order to continue the socio-economic development and firmly consolidate national defense and security on the border, the district has developed a roadmap to bring the two border communes Thuan Binh and Tan Hiep to the new-style rural commune by 2024-2025. In addition to the attention of provincial and district leaders, the efforts of the Party committees, local authorities and the consensus of the people, we hope that the former State President - Truong Tan Sang and sponsors will continue to be interested in helping the district in the future".

On this occasion, the sponsor, Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade of Vietnam - Vietinbank was awarded a certificate of merit from the Provincial People's Committee and given a commemorative logo for its contribution to construct the traffic works in the locality./.
