NDO – Yen Bai should promote its advantages in forestry development and indigenous crops to create a stable income for local people.

National Assembly (NA) Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien made the suggestion during a working session with the mountainous northern province’s leaders on March 6.

Pointing out a number of local shortcomings in terms of infrastructure and human resource quality, the NA leader suggested that Yen Bai renovates its economic thinking to adapt to the new conditions and promote training for high quality human resources.

He noted that Yen Bai’s agricultural sector should develop in the direction of producing high quality goods, while the industry needs to focus on small industrial and handicraft clusters, together with promoting auxiliary and hi-tech industries. As a locality with various cultural areas, it is necessary for Yen Bai to attach greater importance to the development of tourism, he added.

NA Vice Chairman Hien also urged the local authorities to upgrade its transportation facilities and complete the necessary procedures for the construction of a route connecting Yen Bai’s Tram Tau district with Bac Yen district in the neighbouring Son La province, in order to open trade and economic development opportunities for Yen Bai.

At the meeting, the Yen Bai leaders informed the NA working mission on the province’s two-year implementation of its socio-economic development plan and the post-disaster recovery following the deadly floods in 2017.

Yen Bai proposed that the NA reviews and removes any obstacles and inadequacies in allocating investment resources for Yen Bai. They also asked the NA to allow for the adjustment of the administrative boundaries of Nghia Lo town and upgrade Son Thinh commune in Van Chan district into a town.

During his working visit to the province, NA Vice Chairman Hien and his delegation presented a gift to a former leader in Tram Tau and paid a visit to teachers and students in Tram Tau district’s ethnic boarding school.
