BINH DINH (VNS) — National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung asked the coastal province of Binh Dinh to support fishermen in creating wealth from a sea-based economy.

The Chairman had a working session with the provincial authorities after attending the 7th session of the provincial People's Council yesterday, as part of his trip to the central coastal provinces.

As one of the five localities in the central key economic zone, Binh Dinh needs to drastically streamline administrative procedures to facilitate investors' operations, the Chairman stressed.

It also needs to address the widening gap between the rich and the poor, inadequate transport infrastructure and a lack of high-quality human resources, and to call for local residents' active participation in building new-style rural areas, he said.

In 2013, Binh Dinh's GDP was estimated to grow at 8.56 per cent, though its poor population accounted for 9.78 per cent of the total number of inhabitants.

For 2014, however, the province has set a target GPD growth rate of 8.6 - 9 per cent and to reduce the population living below the poverty line to 7.94 per cent.

During his trip, Chairman Hung visited Nhon Loc Commune, An Nhon District, and listened to discussions about building new-style rural areas.

He also presented gifts to families that lost members in the recent floods in Phu Phong town, Tay Son District. — VNS
