HUNG YEN (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong paid a working visit to northern Hung Yen Province yesterday, examining the province's efforts to realise socio-economic goals and develop a new rural area model.
In the morning, Trong worked with authorities and locals in My Hao District's Nhan Hoa Commune, which was chosen to pilot the new rural area model in the province.
For the last three years, the commune made many achievements in building a new rural area model and changing its economic structure to boost the role of industrial production, trade and services.
In the first 10 months of this year, the commune's production value was VND238.5 billion (US$11.3 million), 15 per cent higher than that of the same period last year. Average yearly personal income was VND24.7 million ($1,170).
My Hao District sees yearly growth of 15.84 per cent and export value of $30 million in recent years. For the first half of the year, export value was $18.5 million.
Trong said that the district in particular and the province in general had the capacity to make further achievements. He asked them to review their socio-economic plans closely to ensure that economic development went in line with environmental protection, social security and better social welfare.
He also emphasised the need to fight against corruption, avoid waste and improve the role and performance of Party committees at all levels, both to gain people's trust and lay a foundation for long-term sustainable development.
On the same day, Trong and Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan attended the Festival for Great Unity Among the Entire People in the province's Yen My Town to celebrate the 83rd anniversary of the Viet Nam Unified National Front. — VNS
