THAI BINH (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday advised the Red River Delta province of Thai Binh to focus on developing a high-quality agriculture sector, ensuring that production is linked to processing and sales.

The province should also tap its potentials in marine economy and aquaculture, he said in a meeting with provincial authorities.

Trong expressed his pleasure at achievements recorded by the province over the past three years, including an annual average GDP growth rate of 9.1 percent and per capita income of VND26 million (US$1,238), up 61 percent over 2010. The province earned $975 million from last year, 2.2 times more than in 2010.

The province has strengthened its agricultural sector, boosted development of new-style rural areas and developed large-scale farms with high economic efficiency, generating a food output of nearly 1.1 million tonnes.

Alongside the economic advances, the province should fight harder against the degradation of political thought and virtue, uphold the role of the Party members and forge closer relationships with the people, Trong said.

For their part, provincial officials proposed the building of a coastal economic zone and a highway. They also wanted a transport route linking provinces in the region to be upgraded.

The Party leader visited Thuy Van Commune in Thai Thuy District to see first hand a new-style rural area being developed in the province.

He offered incense at a memorial to Nguyen Duc Canh, a leader of the revolution and the trade union movement. — VNS
