During a working session with Bac Ninh leaders on May 30, Chinh stated that the province managed to overcome the challenges with creative measures to contain the epidemic.

He reiterated that the difficulties should be regarded as motivation for growth.

According to PM Chinh, Bac Ninh is still facing a high risk as it hosts a large number of workers at local industrial parks and has a high population density, therefore it needs to strictly comply with the head of government’s instructions made at an earlier national conference.

He asked the province to consider expanding social distancing measures in areas with higher risks while accelerating testing as the key to detecting new infections and keeping the virus at bay.

The head of government also called for better organisation of workers at factories and manufacturing facilities under quarantine, and replication of effective quarantine models with the participation of enterprises.

He stated that management of industrial parks and enterprise owners must share the responsibility and collaborate with the local authorities in preventing the spread of Covid-19.

After working with Bac Ninh leaders, PM Chinh visited Samsung’s manufacturing facility at the Yen Phong Industrial Park to bolster the morale of business leaders and workers.

He asked Samsung to continue following the Covid-19 prevention guidelines to keep the virus away from its factories and maintain production.
