Central coastal provinces should take a more active approach to seek capital resources to boost connectivity and socio-economic development.
Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc made this statement at a conference in Danang City on April 30 to review one year of the project to develop connections between central coastal provinces.
Over the past year, the consultancy group for developing connectivity has made significant efforts to boost economic development in the region, such as organizing seminars and facilitating agencies and businesses in signing cooperation agreements for developing tourism and training human resources.
At the conference, representatives from central coastal provinces Thua Thien Hue to Khanh Hoa discussed solutions to promote connectivity for development in the future.
Vice Chairman of the Khanh Hoa provincial People’s Committee, Tran Son Hai, underlined the need to intensify investment in developing uniform infrastructure with a view to connecting potential areas for development.
In his speech, Deputy PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc said the central coastal region must consider tourism as a key economic sector for boosting socio-economic development through ODA funded projects.
