The ‘ Improvement of computer usage and public internet access ability in Vietnam’ project funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has yielded positive results in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap.

The project, which equipped the provincial library, nine district libraries and 11 commune libraries with 185 desk computers and 21 printers, helped impoverished communities become acquainted with information technology.

They enjoyed benefits from computer and internet access, ultimately contributing to improving their quality of life and building new-style rural areas.

Tran Thi Thai, Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the project initially helped change local awareness of computers and internet.-VNA
