NINH BINH (VNS)— Ninh Binh Province should focus on its strengths in tourism, agriculture and industry to boost future development.

Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong made this recommendation at his working session with local leaders yesterday as part of his visit to the northern province.

He urged the province to take advantage of its position in the south of the Red River Delta - with a number of famous cultural and historical sites and natural landscapes, such as Phat Diem Stone Church, Trang An Eco-resort, Bai Dinh Pagoda and Cuc Phuong National Park, to develop tourism and related services.

In addition, the province needs to pay due attention to agriculture, industry, clean technology and its maritime economy, he said.

In the years ahead, Ninh Binh should focus on administrative reforms, mechanisms, and perfecting policies, as well as infrastructure development and human resource training, he pointed out.

He further urged the province to improve the building of the Party and the political system, in terms of ideology, organisation, personnel and inspections.

The General Secretary also praised the encouraging results Ninh Binh has earned. From a poor agricultural province, Ninh Binh has become an economic success in the Red River Delta, he said.

According to the province's report, Ninh Binh posted an average annual GDP growth of over 12 per cent in the 2011-13 period. Additionally, the material and spiritual lives of the local residents were much improved, while the rate of poor households dropped to 5.56 per cent last year.

It was also named among the top 10 localities nationwide in new-style rural building, with three communes fulfilling all 19 criteria.
