Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has urged the authorities of northern Nam
Dinh province to take full advantage of its resources for construction
and development.

While working with key provincial
leaders in Hanoi on March 6, Dung agreed with the province’s goals
for this year, including a growth rate of 12 percent, exports worth 400
million USD, a minimum rise of 15 percent in total social investment,
and the reduction of poor households to 5.5 percent.

Dung asked the province to clear obstacles for production and trading
firms, attract investment, especially in industries with high added
value, and make the best use of high-quality human resource.

The local authorities were requested to pay attention to applying
science-technology advances in intensive farming, speeding up the
building of modern rural areas, and developing healthcare, culture and
education. At the same time, they must further accelerate administrative
reforms, combat corruption and take drastic measures to ensure traffic
safety and order.

Dung, together with ministry and
department leaders, gave opinions on the allocation of capital for the
construction of the Nam Dinh–Phu Ly road and the negotiations for a
2,400MW power plant in Hai Hau district.

Secretary
of the provincial Party Committee Pham Hong Ha said this year, Nam Dinh
will step up the construction of new rural areas in 96 communes until
2015, open more large-scale model fields, channel more credit into
production and trading to increase competitiveness, and attract domestic
and foreign investment.

Last year, Nam Dinh enjoyed
a rise of 11.7 percent in gross domestic product (GDP) and a GDP per
capita of 21.1 million VND (1,000 USD). It created jobs for 30,500
workers and reduced the rate of poor households to 6.72 percent.-VNA
