Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has requested that the master plan for Vietnam’s southern region take into account leveraging human and natural resources, culture, history, and external resources such as finance, technology, and management to fully and sustainably develop the region into a dynamic and growth-driving part of the country.
Chairing the second conference of the Coordinating Council for the Southeastern Region in Ho Chi Minh City on November 26, to consult on the Master Plan for the region in the 2021-2030 period and vision to 2050, Prime Minister Chinh said the region has sufficient conditions to become the biggest region in the country in terms of socio-economic development and a development model for the entire country.
The master plan must therefore have breakthrough thinking and a strategic development vision and enhance regional connections, helping tackle difficulties and obstacles while promoting the region’s advantages and strengths, he said.
The plan should also be abreast of global trends and emerging sectors such as digital technology, the circular economy, and the green economy, according to the Prime Minister.
He asked those in attendance to discuss development perspectives and directions for the region, delving deeper into the solutions contained in the regional master plan.
