Da Nang (VNA) – State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc
lauded the central city of Da Nang and the neighbouring province of Quang Nam for their achievements
over the past years during a working session with their leaders on April 10.
He stressed that due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year, Quang Nam
and Da Nang’s economies suffered negative growth. But in the first quarter this
year, they achieved outstanding growth.
Da Nang attracted a number of investors and is working on
building a financial hub. Meanwhile, Quang Nam dealt with difficulties
following disasters and flooding, and is focusing on tourism and services.
The President suggested the two localities seek pillar fields as
Da Nang is a hub in the central region and Da Nang – Quang Nam is a growth
locomotive in the region and an important driving force of the country.

He asked them to become worth-living localities and join hands
to build a powerful country. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, they should
strive to become safe tourism paradises.
Their leaders were urged to fix shortcomings, step up reform,
rearrange a streamlined apparatus while ensuring effective vaccinations.
The President also asked for creating favourable business
environment, fighting negative behaviours and group interest in investment
Once Da Nang sets hi-tech industry as a pillar, it is necessary to
choose capable investors that abide by law, and create a better working
environment to raise labour productivity for socio-economic development./.
