HÀ NỘI — Quảng Bình Province signed a consultancy contract with the McKinsey & Company Việt Nam for developing its socio-economic development master plan by 2030 with vision to 2050 on Monday.
The provincial People’s Committee has assigned its Department of Planning and Investment to be the investor for the VNĐ35.68 billion (US$1.6 million) consultancy package.
The duration of the package lasts from the date the contract is signed until the master plan is approved by the Prime Minister.
The planning stage of the package is 70 working days from the contract signing day.
Chairmain of the committee Nguyễn Hữu Hoài said this master plan was very significant for achieving the province’s socio-economic development objectives and is expected to have a major impact on attracting investors.
Hoài said the consultant had also been asked to prepare a detailed plan quickly, and arrange human resources to implement it in a timely manner.
He said the consultant had been hired to ensure high quality and achieve breakthroughs for the province’s development.
After it is approved, the master plan would help attract investors into Quảng Bình. As such, the plan would be an important document for the central province when it organises an investment promotion conference by the end of 2017, Hoài added.VNS
