NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has advised the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong to capitalise on its strengths in agriculture and tourism for its future overall development.

The PM attended an investment promotion conference in Dak Nong on January 14 during his working visit to the locality.

The conference brought together nearly 1,000 ministry and sector insiders, provincial officials, and delegates representing local and foreign enterprises.

PM Phuc said Dak Nong should increase the growing of avocado, pepper, coffee, passion fruit, and macca trees given its 650,000 ha of fertile land. Investors need to work together with local people to promote the development of hi-tech and organic agriculture to raise the added value of products.

For tourism, the province should tap tangible and intangible heritages of over 40 ethnic groups residing there and mild weather, he said.

The province should speed up administrative reform and train professional staffers to assist investors, he said, suggesting the locality using advantages in the business environment to make up for disadvantages in infrastructure.

The leader reminded the local authorities of developing trade, improving the quality of human resources, especially the public workforce helping them to have better management, and promoting the growth of private businesses.

At the conference, Dak Nong’s authorities handed over investment certificates worth nearly VND2.7 trillion, and signed investment commitments with big economic groups with pledged investment capital nearing VND48 trillion.
