Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong made the statement while chairing a meeting in Hanoi, on May 25.

At the meeting, the Politburo gave opinions to a report reviewing the implementation of Resolution No. 26-NQ/TW, issued on July 30, 2013, during its 11th tenure on orientations and tasks of developing Nghe An by 2020.

The Politburo agreed to issue a new resolution by 2030, with a vision towards 2045, that targets rapid and sustainable development for the province.

Speaking at the meeting, the Party leader stressed the need to include more specific, result-oriented measures in the document, to create tangible changes in the locality - the homeland of late President Ho Chi Minh.

He also emphasised that apart from drastic actions taken by the province itself, centrally-run agencies should also take responsibility for the cause of development.

Heard at the meeting, over the past 10 years, Nghe An has been gearing towards the status of the centre of finance, trade, tourism, education-training, science-technology, high-tech industry, health care and sports, of the north-central region.

Last year, it ranked 10th nationwide in terms of economic scale, with its per capita gross regional domestic product (GRDP) reaching 51.4 million VND (2,189 USD), more than double the figure recorded in 2013.

However, the province has still faced a range of difficulties and its economic development has yet to match its potential and advantages, the Politburo pointed out, noting that the efficiency of the local maritime economy has remained modest, while socio-economic infrastructure has failed to satisfy development demands.
