On January 8th, Deputy Minister Phung Duc Tien visited and had a work session at Cuc Phuong National Park. The event received the attendance of Mr. Nguyen Quoc Tri, Director General of Vietnam Administration of Forestry (VNFOREST), and Ms. Thai Huong, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TH True Milk JSC.

The session started with Mr. Nguyen Van Chinh, Director of Cuc Phuong National Park, presenting the report on the performance of assigned tasks in 2021.

Deputy Minister Phung Duc Tien highly appreciated the results that the park's leaders, officials and employees have achieved in forest protection, scientific research, international cooperation, and especially the rescue and preservation of wild fauna and flora. The Deputy Minister also expressed his understanding of the current situation as the Covid-19 pandemic still caused many difficulties particularly in terms of forest resource management.

Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of TH True Milk Joint Stock Company, Ms. Thai Huong, said: "When I first came to Cuc Phuong National Park, soon I realized its vast potential for ecotourism development. I therefore hope that in the future there will be opportunities to invest or support the National Park in ecotourism, especially resort tourism activities."

Within the framework of the working session, the delegation visited Cuc Phuong National Park's Rescue Centers and directly participated in releasing wild animals after rescue to Cuc Phuong’s primeval forest.

Cuc Phuong National Park has carried out hundreds of re-releases up to date. Thousands of individuals of many different species now reside in Cuc Phuong primeval forest as well as many other national parks and nature reserves across the country.
