- Politburo member and National Assembly (NA)
Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on October 13 asked Khanh Hoa province to strive
to become a driving force for growth in the south-central and Central Highlands
Addressing the 18th congress of the
provincial Party organisation for the 2020-2025 tenure, Ngan recalled that, in
2012, the Politburo issued Conclusion No 53 on building and developing Khanh
Hoa province to 2020 with a vision to 2030, which directed the province towards
becoming an economic, tourism, science and technology, and human resources
training centre for the sea-based and tourism economies.
To that end, the locality now needs to speed up
provincial planning in accordance with regional- and national-level planning,
she said, stressing the importance of its role and position in boosting
connectivity in the south-central and Central Highlands regions and the
East-West Economic Corridor, while at the same time focusing on developing
industry, high-quality tourism, and the sea-based economy.
The Politburo member also requested Khanh Hoa
promptly take measures to improve its business and investment environment and
increase the quality of its infrastructure, services, and human resources to
welcome new FDI flows, and to prioritise projects that use high, new, and
It is necessary to bring into full play
investment incentives in the revised Investment Law to attract more major projects,
and to take advantage of the opportunities brought about by bilateral and
multilateral agreements, especially new-generation free trade agreements such
as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership
(CPTPP) and the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), so as to effectively
participate in global value chains.
The leader also highlighted the importance of
prioritising investment in developing education, training, health, and
socio-culture, stepping up the application of science and technology and fully implementing
social welfare policies.
To increase the quality of the healthcare
sector, the province should intensify links with major hospitals in Hanoi and HCM
City to bolster check-up and treatment quality, and focus on developing medical
tourism, Ngan suggested.
Khanh Hoa holds an extremely important
strategic location in defence and security, as it is a gateway to the Central
Highlands and home to Cam Ranh Military Port and Truong Sa (Spratly) island
district, Ngan noted, meaning the province must mainstream socio-economic
development with consolidating defence and security and building an all-people
It must take the initiative in maintaining
political-security stability and social order and safety, and safeguarding
national sovereignty and territorial integrity over Vietnamese sea and islands,
The leader also stressed the need to elect
competent members to the Executive Board of the provincial Party organisation
in the 2020-2025 tenure.
The 18th Congress of the provincial
Party organisation will close on October 14./.
