NINH THUAN (VNS) — The south-central coastal province of Ninh Thuan must pay special attention to maintaining political security and social order and safety as well as safeguarding national sovereignty over the sea and islands, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said.
Speaking at a meeting with top Ninh Thuan officials on Saturday during his working tour of the province, the Party leader instructed the provincial Party committee to continue renovating its way of thinking, strengthen internal solidarity and make full use of support from the central Government.
"Ninh Thuan needs to examine the potential strengths of its leadership as well as the difficulties they face in order to work out development strategies and plans for the future," he said, adding that the provincial Party committee had a long list of tasks for the coming tenure.
He asked the province to complete all the goals set by the 12th congress of its Party committee and select areas where visible changes would be made, such as transport infrastructure, irrigation, wind power and the marine economy.
The leader took note of the province's proposals on the issuance of mechanisms and policies related to the implementation of a planned nuclear power plant project and the supply of additional capital to accelerate the completion of a coastal road system. — VNS
