The Government chief hailed efforts of the local government and residents, especially in modernizing the countryside and creating job opportunities for local people.

Van Don island district holds important status, both in terms of economics and national defense, and offered great potential for helping develop the Northeast region and the country as a whole in term of economics, trade, service and tourism.

The Government and relevant State agencies are actively conducting surveys and assessments to complete a plan to develop Van Don into a special economic zone, which would soon be submitted to the National Assembly for approval.

PM Dung called upon the local authorities to continue making efforts to strengthen staff capacity, effectively reduce poverty and improve the living standards of the local people./.
