Explaining comments to evaluate the implementation results of the Congress Resolution
Regarding the implementation results of the Congress Resolution, there were many comments of delegates proposing to further evaluate the role and contribution of the labor force outside the province to the economic development of the province. Mr. Mai Hung Dung said that in recent years, all levels and branches from the province to grassroots have always agreed with the view that the labor force outside the province is one of the resources that play an important role in the development process of the province. Therefore, the province is always interested in implementing well social security policies, constantly improving the material and spiritual lives of labors. However, the Presidium consulted the Congress not to individually evaluate the contribution of this force, because in the content of evaluating the role of contributions of all classes of people, it has covered all the subjects in society, including the labor force outside the province.
Particularly for the proposal to clearly state the cause of the two unsatisfactory targets in the Resolution is the ratio of doctors/10,000 people and the number of patient beds/10,000 people. Mr. Mai Hung Dung said that, in recent years, Binh Duong has a high mechanical population growth rate; it is estimated that, annually, the province has increased more than 80,000 people from outside the province to work and live; up to now, the proportion of people outside the province accounts for 53.5% of the province's population; this has helped the province to have human resources to meet the labor needs of the province, but also creates great pressure on the province in terms of infrastructure, social security, order and security, especially medical care and education. In the past term, the province has mobilized the maximum resources to focus on health and education development, and well solve social problems, in which, facilities, equipment and human resources of the Health branch are interested in investing, the grassroots health network has been gradually strengthened and completed. The socialization of health care has been promoted, attracting many participants, including, developing private hospitals with foreign investment capital. In 2020, Binh Duong and the whole country have made efforts to control the Covid-19 pandemic well, prevented cases from occurring outside the community, which is a great effort of the entire political system of the province, in which, especially the Health branch.
However, with high mechanical population growth, the province has strived to nearly reach two targets on the ratio of doctors/10,000 people to 7.5 doctors (Resolution with over 7.5), the number of hospital beds/10,000 people to 21.3 (Resolution with 27). To ensure the successful implementation of the targets set out by the Resolution of the 11th Congress, including Health targets and objectives, the Presidium asked for the comments of the Congress to assign the 11th Provincial Party Executive Committee to continue to lead and direct all levels, branches, localities and units to make efforts to overcome difficulties from the pressure of mechanical population growth to well solve problems of people's health care, education, and social security.

For the target, up to 2045, Binh Duong will be a smart city of the region and the country, set by the 10th Provincial Party Excutive Committee on the basis of the Project on sustainable smart city development in Vietnam in the period 2018 - 2025 and the Government's orientation to 2030 (according to Decision no. 950/QD-TTg, dated August 01, 2018), the framework model for the construction of a smart city meeting regional standards from now to 2030 by the Ministry of Information and Communications along with the initial achievements in the implementation of the province's Smart City Project in recent years, Binh Duong has basically met the standards and requirements set out in comparison with the domestic and international standards.
