The provincial leaders give congratulation flowers.
Particularly, the average economic growth rate in the 2016-2018 period reached 14.2
The province ranked 2nd out of 15 northern mountainous provinces in building new-style rural areas. The business climate has been improved while the cultural sector has seen dramatic advancement and education hold its top rank nationwide with a number of high prizes.
These results have been achieved thanks to great efforts of the province itself and support from Bac Giang people who live far from the homeland including the Association of Bac Giang scientists in Hanoi.
In addition, the provincial Chairman shared, Bac Giang faced many difficulties compared to other localities nationwide while its potentials and advantages have not been comprehensively exploited and promoted.
He hoped the Association would continue fulfilling their roles as a bridge to connect the members, experts and scientists from other localities to the province contributing to the course of construction and development of the homeland.
