HCM CITY — The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Vĩnh Long is planning to make changes to its socio-economic master plan to reflect changes on the ground.
Trương Đặng Vĩnh Phúc, director of the province Department of Planning and Investment, told a conference on Friday that the changes would focus on industry, industrial complex infrastructure, rural agriculture, culture-tourism, transport infrastructure, urban housing development, and trade services.
The province’s main sectors are agriculture, food processing, energy, manufacture and repair of agricultural machinery and vehicles, wood processing, garment and textiles, and footwear.
Lê Quang Trung, vice chairman of the province People’s Committee, said this year Vĩnh Long plans to improve its growth models by enhancing labour productivity and competitiveness.
It plans to enhance co-operation with other localities in the delta to develop its services and tourism sectors, he said.
It would continue to restructure agriculture by building new rural areas and focus on building value chains for and promoting its major agricultural products.
Last year, the province’s agricultural output had been worth VNĐ10.59 trillion, according to the People’s Committee. — VNS
