The Vice Chairman appreciated the efforts of the departments, districts and people through the city which actively participated in environmental sanitation preservation, forest protection and development, tree planting campaigns, and development of the city’s green spaces in recent years.

He asked everyone, especially cadres and civil servants, to plant at least one tree in their localities in response to the PM's call to plant one billion trees in the period of 2021 – 2025.

On this occasion, 16 communes and towns of Binh Chanh District have registered to plant 16,000 trees as part of the tree-planting campaign with the theme      “Forever grateful to Uncle Ho”./.
