HƯNG YÊN — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc asked the northern province of Hưng Yên to continue creating a better investment environment and developing industrial, service and urban zones during his Tết (Lunar New Year) visit to the province on Saturday.
Secretary of the Hưng Yên provincial Party Committee Đỗ Tiến Sỹ reported to the PM the locality’s prominent achievements over the years, including the establishment of 10,000 businesses and the attraction of over 1,800 investment projects. The province has set up big industrial zones, like Hòa Phát and Thăng Long II.
Phúc said he hoped the province would continue to make full use of its potential, develop agriculture and services, provide the best environment to attract investment, bring into full play the role of businesses, and rally all available resources for its long-term, stable, and sustainable growth.
The province should make breakthroughs in developing urban areas, trade and services, especially when it hosts the road connecting the Hà Nội-Hải Phòng and Cầu Giẽ-Ninh Bình expressways, he said.
He agreed with the locality’s proposal to add the Lý Thường Kiệt service and urban industrial zone covering nearly 3,000 ha to its industrial zone planning from now to 2025 and 2030, expecting it would create a springboard for the province in socio-economic growth, increasing budget, generating jobs, and addressing social security issues.
On the day, Phúc offered incense at the commemorative house for Hoàng Thị Loan, mother of late President Hồ Chí Minh, in Hồng Tiến Commune, Khoái Châu District, and laid a wreath at the statue of late Party General Secretary Nguyễn Văn Linh.
He presented gifts to Vietnamese Heroic Mother Nguyễn Thị Nhơn in Xuân Trúc Commune, Ân Thi District, and 10 families who benefit from social policies. — VNS
