Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung stressed that Kien Giang Province should take advantages of current policies, or build new ones if needed, to attract infrastructure investment, especially in irrigation systems and traffic facilities for agricultural development.
He made the statement while working with key local leaders on the provincial socio-economic situation yesterday.
PM Dung said the southern province must do its utmost to bring into play its potential in agriculture, aquaculture, forestry, tourism and find dynamic and creative ways to mobilise its sources to serve the provincial development targets for faster and more sustainable growth in the future.
Specifically, he required Kien Giang to continue to focus on promoting agriculture and aquaculture while associating with the processing industry for export.
The province was also asked to apply science and technology to improve the productivity, quality, and competitiveness of its commodities on the market. Dung said it needed to support the development of the processing industry of agricultural and aquaculture products for export.
Kien Giang was also told to promote the development of the material construction production, focusing on cement production and consumer goods.
In addition, Dung noted that the province should pay more attention to social security, health care, education and training development to meet people's requirements and job consultancy.
Reports showed that the socio-economic situation of Kien Giang Province in the first six months of this year has seen positive signals, proven by an increase of 10.1 per cent of GDP growth.
The province has implemented the Government's Resolution 13 to remove difficulties and promote businesses, including the exemption and reduction of some State budget revenues, with the total amount of VND198 billion (US$9.5 million).
However, the province admitted shortcomings still existed, including below target export turnover and industrial production.
Previously, PM Dung, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Van Ninh and some leaders of ministries attended the investment promotion conference in Kien Giang Province.
The conference, which introduced the province's potential, was an opportunity for international and domestic enterprises to find opportunities for investment and co-operation in the province.
