The province asked the Government to assist it in the upgrading of the Dong Hoi Airport in 2018 and add the airport to the list of international airports in the future in order to boost the local tourism and transport.

The local authorities also suggested that the Government will recognise the relic site dedicated to General Vo Nguyen Giap located in LocThuy commune, Le Thuy district as the national-level historical site to serve the preservation of the relic site and tourism.

In addition, the province expressed hope that the Government will soon approve a target programme on education in mountainous, ethnic and disadvantaged regions aligned with a specific capital allocation plan for these regions in the 2018-2020 period.

In particular, local authorities asked the Government to provide financial support for the province to build kindergartens and primary schools for children in remote, ethnic and disadvantage regions with a total aid of VND276 billion for 52 communes.

Deputy PM Dam acknowledged and lauded the province for its efforts to overcome difficulties caused by the marine environmental incident in 2016 and the strong development of its tourism sector in 2017.

He noted that the Government along with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will implement actions to help Quang Binh to become a famous tourism destination across the world.
In response to the suggestion on building new kindergartens and primary schools, the Deputy PM stated that the Government will consider the budget to assist the province to build new facilities in disadvantaged regions.

He added that the Government will also ask the Ministry of Education and Training to issue specific documents on guiding the province’s education and training sector to remove obstacles related to the allocation of regular spending for boarding schools and allowances for teachers, and others.
