ĐẮK NÔNG — The Central Highlands province of Đắk Nông has suggested speeding up the construction of the Nhân Cơ Aluminum Plant to ensure its completion in 2016 as scheduled.
At a working session with Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyễn Chí Dũng in Đắk Nông on Thursday, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Lê Diễn called for more attention from ministries and centrally-run agencies to the building of irrigation facilities in the locality to cope with climate change.
Along with road, railway and airport projects from 2016-2021, the official proposed the Government allocate capital for its migration projects, saying Đắk Nông hosts 51,000 unplanned migrants who have not been helped to settle in, affecting the locality’s security.
According to Diễn, the province will focus on creating economic breakthroughs in the next five years, targeting a bauxite-aluminum-spongy iron complex, high-tech agriculture, and tourism.
At the same time, Đắk Nông will pour more funds into infrastructure construction to serve local development, gearing towards an annual growth rate of 9 percent and per capita income of VNĐ52 million (US$2,340), he noted.
Minister Dũng urged the province to mobilise other resources, apart from the State budget, especially those from businesses to spur growth.
Đắk Nông should improve its investment climate and regional connectivity, he suggested.
The minister promised to propose the Prime Minister maintain mid-and long-term capital for the province, and create the best possible conditions for projects in the locality. — VNS
