NDO/VNA - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc attended a ceremony on July 2 in Quang Ngai to mark the 30th anniversary of the central province’s re-establishment.

Addressing the event, PM Phuc lauded Quang Ngai for the socio-economic development, rising from a war-torn locality to a dynamically developing one, especially after the Dung Quat Economic Zone becomes operational.

He said that Quang Ngai can become an industrial hub of the central region and the whole country, suggesting the province focus on developing support industry, high technology and human resources.

Quang Ngai should prioritise the attraction of investment in major areas such as manufacturing-processing, tourism and agriculture for sustainable development, while speeding up the planned projects and mobilising community’s resources to boost rural development.

After 30 years of re-formation, Quang Ngai has seen achievements in socio-economic development, with economic structure shifting towards a higher ratio of industry and service and lower contribution of agriculture.

The province’s economic output in 2019 is estimated to reach nearly VND55 trillion (US$2.36 billion).

On the occasion, PM Phuc presented the first-class Independence Order to the Party organisation, government and people of Quang Ngai.
