Nghe An (VNA) –
Nghe An province should work
harder to attract major and strategic projects, thus creating remarkable changes, Prime
Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told local key officials at a working session on March
PM Phuc lauded the central province’s efforts to achieve a
growth rate of 7.2 percent and budget collection of over 17 trillion VND
(739.72 million USD).
The government leader urged Nghe An province to promote the
spirit of innovation and creativity, as well as traditional cultural values, both
tangible and intangible, in the time ahead.
A drastic and specific action programme is needed to implement
the resolutions adopted at the 13th National Party Congress and the
provincial Party Congress, he said.
PM Phuc asked Nghe An to pay more heed to urban
expansion and development, which, he said, holds significance to the province.
As the centre of the north central region, Nghe An needs
to develop further and form hubs of education-training, culture, entertainment
and tourism, the PM said.
He suggested mobilising different economic sectors to
spur service development and production, ensure security and order, and attract
more talents and rich people to the province.
Also on March 14, the PM attended the inauguration ceremony of Cua Hoi bridge linking Nghe An and Ha Tinh provinces.

Construction of the bridge, spanning Lam River, began
in February 2019, with total cost of 950 billion VND, with 450 billion VND from
government bonds and the remainder from the two provinces.
The bridge is of significance as it contributes to
completing the coastal route connecting the two provinces and facilitating the
development of maritime tourism and economy.
