HÀ NỘI — The southern province of Vĩnh Long on Tuesday unveiled a construction master plan covering the period from 2018 to 2030 and with a vision to 2050.
The Deputy Director of the provincial Construction Department, Trần Hoài Hiệp, said the plan aimed to establish Vĩnh Long as a centre of service, industry, and hi-tech agriculture through equitable and sustainable development.
Hiệp said the projects under the master plan would be built in accordance with the projects of the adjusted construction plan for the Cửu Long Mekong Delta, which is expected to become an important road and railway transport hub for the delta and a logistical centre in the urban economic region between Cửu Long Delta, HCM City, and Phnom Penh.
Vĩnh Long is set to become a hub for paddies and orchards and a centre of hi-tech agriculture, supporting other hi-tech industries in the delta. It is also expected to be a vocational training and biological science research centre as well as a trade and tourism destination.
The province’s economic growth rate is predicted to reach 7 per cent by 2030, with an average Gross Regional Domestic Product per capita of US$4,000. — VNS
