He urged the localities to complete the tasks before October 31 this year.

Regarding the launch of the construction of 13 kindergartens, the Department of Education and Training should coordinate with six targeted districts to take advantage of favourable weather conditions to speed up the work, striving to complete the construction as scheduled, he asked.
