IV. ADVANTAGES, DIFFICULTIES, RECOMMENDATIONS
1. Advantages
Thanks to the close attention and direction of the Central Project Management Board, Lao Cai People's Committee, in the orientation of the main contents and activities of the Low Carbon Agriculture Support Project in 2014, Lao Cai province has Assignment of the plan for the construction of biogas works in 2014 according to annual socio-economic development plans of districts and cities.

2. Difficult
- Transportation of some communes of Lao Cai province is difficult, sparse population density, many localities lack water, thus partly affecting the progress of construction / installation of biogas plant;
- Some companies have not been approved by the Central PMU to participate in the project. They have deployed themselves in districts and cities to install Compocite tanks at cheaper prices by participating companies from VND3-4 million As a result, people find it cheaper to install their own, so they are also affected by the project.
- For Hung Viet Trading Co., Ltd, 20 biogas tunnels were installed in the implementation process. Due to the difficulty of accessing some households, the Company responded not to participate in the project in Lao Cai province, so the number of biogas tanks could not be accepted.
- Credit support for implementation of the project has not been implemented;

3. Recommendations
It is proposed that the Central PMU should soon complete the Project Implementation Manual for the Project Management Board of Lao Cai PMU to ensure the plan and schedule of the project.
