Ha Tinh asked to draw more investors to Vung Ang EZ

QĐND – Monday, July 05, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

The central province of Ha Tinh needs to invest more in infrastructure in the Vung Ang Economic Zone (EZ) and create favourable conditions for businesses that are carrying out projects there.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung made the request at a working session with the provincial leaders during his trip to Ha Tinh province on July 4, focusing on its socio-economic performances in the first half of 2010 and development directions for the 2011-2015 period.

PM Dung urged the province to take full advantage of Vung Ang deep-water seaport, step up investment promotion and simplify administrative procedures, in order to attract more investors to the Vung Ang EZ.

Ha Tinh province must utilise from 6,000 km2 of land, including 100,000 ha for farming and 250,000 ha for afforestation, and a population of almost 1.3 million, he said, adding that it needs speed up the application of scientific-technological advances to cow breeding and rubber growing.

The government leader asked Ha Tinh to upgrade and build more healthcare and education facilities, develop human resources, ensure social security and reduce traffic accidents.

PM Dung praised the socio-economic achievements the province has reaped over the past five years, referring to its annual average economic growth rate of 9.6 percent and preliminary successes in developing industrial and economic zones and seaports.

However, the PM also pointed out a number of shortcomings facing Ha Tinh such as low per capita income, which stands at VND11 million a year, equivalent to just half of the nation’s average, a high rate of poor households and poor socio-economic infrastructure’s facilities.

During his visit, PM Dung inspected the construction of resettlement areas and the construction tempo of major projects in the Vung Ang EZ, including the Vung Ang 1 thermal power plant and the Son Duong steel complex and seaport. The EZ has so far attracted more than 90 projects with a combined registered capital of almost VND200 trillion (US$10.5 billion).

The government leader also called at the monuments to the late Party General Secretaries, Ha Huy Tap and Tran Phu, and the Dong Loc T-junction relic site.
