The PM also required further review of hydropower planning in other localities as required by the National Assembly in its Resolution 62/2013/QH13 dated November 27, 2013. 

At the same time, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the Ministry of Industry and Trade are to examine and build complete procedures for operating reservoirs, with a view to ensuring the efficient use of water resources for power generation, maintain water flow to meet the need of downstream areas, particularly in dry season, while reducing flooding in flood season. 

The PM instructed Central Highlands provinces to keep in place the suspension of granting licence to hydropower plants that use natural forest land or cause negative impacts on local biological environment. In case of any arising matters that are beyond their jurisdiction, the provinces are required to report them to the PM.
