Bac Lieu chose shrimp, dropped the project with hundred million dollars
Bac Lieu said no to coal project can bring to the provincial budget hundreds of billion VND each year is rare in the economic conditions of this locality is very difficult.

Cai Cung Thermo-power Plant is a central project located in Bac Lieu province, due to a Japanese company to invest hundreds of millions of dollars. Appraisal of the project is the Ministry of Industry and Trade, with the participation of the People's Committee of Bac Lieu province. If the project is implemented, the GDP of Bac Lieu province will increase dramatically, may double, and the per capita income will increase significantly - like Tra Vinh, after receiving the thermal power plant project, The GDP of this province jumped from 6%-12%.

To keep the power, Bac Lieu must "sacrifice" the shrimp

At the time, leader of Bac Lieu considered whether to choose thermal power or not, they received information from the provinces of Binh Thuan and Ninh Thuan showing signs of great pollution caused by the thermal power plant. Therefore, the province has met and agreed to abandon Cai Cung thermo power out of planning.

According to Mr. Duong Thanh Trung, Chairman of Bac Lieu People's Committee, despite modern technologies, all thermal power plants have a large amount of coal slag and need large area to store coal slag. "while, Bac Lieu has a lot of shrimp farming area and is implementing and replicating the high-tech shrimp farming models to implement the long-term strategy of developing shrimp for the national brand. Thus, the thermal power plant will have a great impact on the shrimp cultivation environment. If having power plant, Bac Lieu definitely have to sacrifice shrimps "- Mr. Trung explained.
