This activity is part of the “Planting 1 million trees” project launched by BIDV in response to the Prime Minister’s “Planting a billion trees in the 2021-2025 period” project. The program is also part of BIDV’s activities towards the bank’s 65th anniversary (26 April 1957 – 26 April 2022) as well as the commitment to planting trees from the “BIDVRUN – For a Green Life” running event.
The tree planting program in the coastal area not only contributes to creating a “green shield” to block waves, wind, and limit coastal erosion, but also helps to reduce the negative impacts of high tides and floods on the lives of people living along the Central coast.
Speaking at the planting ceremony, Mr. Le Van Luong – Member of the Central Committee of Youth Union and Secretary of Nghe An Provincial Youth Union (the focal point for receiving and taking care of the newly planted trees) said: “The planting activity during the springtime has become a tradition of our nation. The large number of BIDV-funded trees planted for coastal protection and wave breaking is of great significance to Nghe An people. We are committed to taking care of and ensuring the trees live and grow well”.
Mr. Tran Xuan Hoang - Member of the Board of Directors, Chairman of the Trade Union of BIDV, said: “Since the launching of the “1 million trees” planting project, BIDV has planted a total of 13,000 new trees in local branches across the country such as Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Ha Tinh, Nghe An and Ba Vi National Park. BIDV is boosting the implementation of the program in 2022, towards the goal of planting and taking care of “1 million trees” in the period 2021-2025”.
Planting trees during the springtime, BIDV expresses its hope that the trees will bring a new year full of hope for a green, sustainable and prosperous Vietnam.
