HCM CITY (VNS)— Politburo member and Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc urged the steering committees of the northwestern, southwestern and Central Highlands regions of Viet Nam to set up partnerships in order to increase regional connectivity.

During a meeting in HCM City on Saturday, delegates representing the various regions agreed that regional connectivity was weak due to the lack of a clear framework for implementing the country's master plan for socio-economic development.

Nguyen Xuan Tien, chairman of the people's committee of Lam Dong province in the Central Highlands, described Lam Dong as a "shining example" of the benefits of regional connections.

The province has set up long-standing links with HCM City in agriculture, tourism and human resource training.

Deputy PM Vu Van Ninh, who represented the southwestern region at the meeting, said an ideal regional partnership should cover fields from economics, society and enterprises to farming and environmental issues.

To make such co-operation effective, national regulations must be implemented that would be suitable for the whole country.

Public Security Minister General Tran Dai Quang, representing the Central Highlands, hoped that increased links between the three regions would boost business production, agriculture, industry, trade and services. — VNS
