The province should prioritise implementing these specific solutions, said the leader at his working session with key provincial leaders in Hanoi on May 31 to tackle difficulties and speed up a number of key socio-economic and infrastructure projects for faster growth of the locality.

He highlighted the potential and strengths of Binh Thuan in tourism, natural resources and energy.

He commended the province on its recent good socio-economic performance and budget collection, saying it has shown strong performance in planning, forest protection and improving the investment environment.

However, Binh Thuan is still a poor locality that still needs support from the central budget, he pointed out.

The PM suggested that the province should review its socio-economic tasks to make sure these are relevant to development goals and strength of the province.

The locality should stick to the Party and State policies and law on natural resources and land management, avoiding losses and waste of land, he requested.

The province needs to efficiently deal with prolonged complaints and denunciations and protect the environment during its socio-economic development process, he said.

At the working session, the PM and leaders of some ministries also responded to the province’s proposals and requests regarding some transport infrastructure, air port and tourism projects.
