Building coast protection breakwaters
Survey of Binh Thuan Natural Resources and Environment shows coast of Binh Thuan is 192 km long, of which 6 coast paragraphs often occur serious erosion, need to take measures to protect Tien Thanh paragraph coast (Phan Thiet city), coast of Lien Huong town (Tuy Phong district), the coast of Phuoc Loc, Tan Phuoc (La Gi town) and etc. Especially, there are strong erosion seas into the mainland between 10 - 20m per year as villages of Tien Duc, Tien Thanh (Phan Thiet city).

Cause of this phenomenon is due to the geological structure of Binh Thuan coast consists of sand, loose soil, so it is easy to get erosion when waves slap the shore strongly.

Facing this situation, more than 4 last years, Binh Thuan province developed the sea dyke systems to prevent invasion in the province. However, due to a long coastline where there are many new erosion, very expensive investment funding, while budgets are more difficult, so the province resolved step gradually.

The province expected to invest 3,500 billion VND in building 100 km of concrete breakwater, protecting the coast. The embankment will be developed by 2020.
