The mission of the US Embassy in Vietnam visits Cao Bang

From February 6 to 8, 2020, the Mission of the US Embassy in Vietnam led by Mr. Thomas Stevenson, Defense Attaché, had a working visit in Cao Bang province.

Director of Cao Bang Department of Foreign Affairs Huynh Van Nam welcomed the delegation to Cao Bang and, on behalf of the province leaders, extended best regards to the US Ambassadors in Vietnam.

Mr. Thomas Stevenson highly appreciated the reception of Cao Bang Department of Foreign Affairs and had a good impression on the people and landscape of Cao Ban. At the same time, he hoped that during the visit, the mission would be able to survey some locations for building schools and health stations in areas frequently affected by natural disasters in the province. After the trip, the mission would have a survey report and select two appropriate places to develop the project to submit to Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid Appropriation (OHDACA, USA) for approval. The US Embassy in Vietnam would inform Cao Bang province through the Department of Foreign Affairs if the project was approved. (estimated funding for each construction is about USD 500.000)

The mission visited 6 locations in the districts of Trung Khanh, Quang Uyen and Hoa An including Trung Phuc Commune Health Station, Lang Hieu Primary School, Chi Thao Commune Health Station, Hong Dinh Nursery School, Quang Trung Nursery School and Hong Nam Commune Health Station. The delegation had talks with the leaders of the local authorities on a number of issues like the situation of the Health Stations and schools, listened to the desired needs of the communes and took measurements of the project construction sites.

Through the mission of the survey team, the units and districts contributed to introduce as well as promote the image of Cao Bang province to the US Embassy in Vietnam. It was also a good opportunity to promote the cooperation between Cao Bang and the US Embassy. The delegation was impressed by an enthusiastic and dynamic Cao Bang who was willing to integrate and exchange internationally in a flexible and diverse manner in order to best serve the socio-economic development. In addition, Cao Bang Department of Foreign Affairs which had been playing a good role as the focal point in the local foreign affairs, would, in the coming time, continue connecting with the embassies in Vietnam, thereby building an information exchange mechanism between agencies and organizations with the province in a more convenient and sustainable way.
