Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has urged the Mekong Delta province
of Vinh Long to take synchronous measures to promote the building of
new-style rural areas and reduce traffic accidents.

Dung made the request at a working session with the province’s key
leaders on March 20 during his on-going working tour of the Mekong Delta
provinces.

At the session, the Government leader
spoke highly of Vinh Long’s efforts and socio-economic development
achievements, especially in improving people’s living standards,
reducing poverty and building new-style rural areas.

He pointed to the shortcomings the province should overcome in the
coming time, such as poor transport and healthcare infrastructure, the
lack of high-quality human resource, a small industrial sector, and
poorly competitive farm produces.

Stressing the
locality’s advantages and potential, the PM asked Vinh Long to seek
active and creative ways to boost its socio-economic development,
focusing on removing difficulties for business and production
activities, especially in agriculture and seafood processing, as well as
implementing synchronous measures to stabilise the market.

He urged the province to improve the investment environment and the investment growth quality and efficiency.

Vinh Long should focus on attracting investment to the development of
industries, particularly the processing one that uses locally-available
materials, and utilise all resources to successfully implement its 2013
socio-economic development goals, Dung said.

In 2012, Vinh Long recorded GDP growth of 7.82 percent and a per-capita annual income of 31.82 million VND (1,500 USD).-VNA
