Urban areas in Quang Ninh are growing rapidly, but there remain large rural areas, ethnic minorities, and island residents. So Quang Ninh’s development strategy needs to focus on building new rural areas, investing in green, clean ecological agriculture, modern rural areas, and civilized farmers as the basis for sustainable development,” Mr. Trong said.
“Given its important position, Quang Ninh needs to promote its pioneering role in innovation of the Northern Delta and growth engine of the Northern region. More attention should be paid to the marine economy in association with the protection of natural resources and the ecological environment for sustainable tourism development,” he added.
Party General Secretary Trong also asked Quang Ninh province to consolidate defense and security, boost international economic cooperation and competition, maintain the sovereignty and security of the border on land, sea and islands, and build a border of peace, friendship, stability, cooperation and development.
