Authorities of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue are urged to concentrate on building Hue city into a festival city to help turn their province into a centrally-run city in the 2010-2015 period as planned.
Truong Tan Sang, a Politburo member and Permanent member of the Party Central Committee Secretariat, was speaking at the provincial Party Committee’s 14 th congress for the 2010-2015 term in Hue city on Sept. 6.
In its political report presented at the congress, the provincial Party Committee affirmed that the locality’s annual average GDP growth rate of 12 percent was a prominent achievement in the 2005-2010 period.
As the province continues with its structural economic shift, the tourism industry has become its spearhead economic sector and its per capita income is now over 1,150 USD, the Party Committee reported.
With properly-invested infrastructure, urban areas in the locality have been developing as planned and the people’s living conditions have been improved remarkably, the committee said.
However, Sang pointed out that Thua Thien-Hue has failed to tap its potentials and strength to make its economy grow in a sustainable manner.
As defined for the 2010-2015 period, to become a centrally-run city the locality needs to focus on promoting its urban development and completing and modernising its infrastructure system, Sang said.
The province should boost industrialisation, modernisation and the shift in economic structure and constantly raise the quality, effectiveness and competitiveness of its products and businesses in order to attain speedy and sustainable growth, Sang noted.
He urged Thua Thien-Hue to capitalize on its advantages to develop three centres, based on culture and tourism, education and training, and healthcare.
Sang asked the province to combine its economic development tasks with promoting cultural development, ensuring social welfare, reducing poverty, growing sustainably and protecting the environment.
