– Chairman of the Da
Nang People’s Committee Huynh Duc Tho has asked departments and localities to
make thorough preparation for the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week, which is
scheduled to take place in the city in November.

He made the request at a working session with officials
from municipal departments, agencies and People’s Committees of districts and
communes on September 23.

crimes while local authorities must ensure clean environment and urban order.

He ordered the Departments of Natural Resources
and Environment, Construction, and Transport to tighten management of
environment, construction and transport, particularly land clearance and
implementation of key projects.

Regarding the city’s socio-economic performance
in January-September, the municipal People’s Committee reported that the GDP

projects worth about 783 billion VND (34.4 million USD). Additionally, the
province granted licences to 73 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects worth
nearly 62 million USD.
