DAK NONG (VNS)— Dak Nong Province has to make the best use of its potential and strengths while accelerating scientific and technological application for higher and sustainable economic development.

The advice was given by President Truong Tan Sang at a ceremony to mark the Central Highlands province's 10th anniversary in Gia Nghia on Tuesday.

Apart from speeding up economic restructuring, especially in agriculture, Sang also asked Dak Nong to improve conditions for mining activities and mineral processing projects with proper regards to environmental protection and socio-economic effectiveness.

Drawing the provincial leaders' attention to education and training, healthcare, culture, social affairs and poverty reduction, he urged them to place more importance on national defence and security, and the fight against crime and social evils.

He also underlined the need for the province to concentrate on building the political system and implementing the 11th Party Congress Resolution, and to roll out a concrete plan and mobilise resources to tackle issues relating to rapid migration.

Along with the significant achievements Dak Nong made during the past decade, more efforts should be exerted to address unsustainable economic development, low productivity, slow economic restructuring, wasteful use of natural resources and a high rate of poor households, Sang said.

The province was also asked to co-ordinate with ministries to accelerate the implementation of forestry projects and handle deforestation, which is widespread across the locality.

During his stay in Dak Nong, the leader visited farmers in Duc Minh commune who have contributed significantly to production and business.

He also presented gifts to M'Nong ethnic people in the province, and met with officers and soldiers of the Dak Nong border guard, asking them to contribute more to local economic development and poverty reduction as part of their duties. — VNS
