Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh recently underscored the importance of transforming the southern island district of Phu Quoc into a major tourism center.

The Prime Minister, addressing a conference on the island on March 31, emphasized the need for a nationwide effort, stating "Developing Phu Quoc is not a separate task of Kien Giang or Phu Quoc but a common task of the whole country."

The Prime Minister highlighted Phu Quoc's significant achievements over the past 20 years, including substantial economic growth and a tourism boom. He attributed these successes to the leadership of the Communist Party, along with the efforts of local government and the support of international partners.

However, the Prime Minister also acknowledged existing challenges, such as limitations in infrastructure, environmental concerns, and the need for further policy development. He stressed the importance of sustainable development practices to ensure Phu Quoc's long-term success.

To address these issues, the Prime Minister presented a six-point plan. This plan emphasizes innovative policies to fully leverage Phu Quoc's unique potential, along with infrastructure upgrades in transportation, healthcare, education, and technology networks for sustainable growth.

It also includes measures for stronger local authority through decentralization and resource allocation. Additionally, the plan focuses on fostering new industries and integrating Phu Quoc into regional and global supply chains to diversify the economy.

The Prime Minister also stressed the importance of promoting Phu Quoc's rich history and culture alongside tourism development. Finally, the plan calls for nationwide collaboration, mobilizing support from ministries, other provinces, and the private sector to drive Phu Quoc's transformation.

Prime Minister Chinh expressed confidence in Phu Quoc's potential to become a "national and international tourism center, a modern, civilized, smart, green, clean, beautiful, safe, and worth-living city.”

His action plan provides a clear roadmap towards achieving this ambitious vision, emphasizing a shared national responsibility to ensure Phu Quoc's enduring success.
