(VOVworld) – Nguyen Thien Nhan, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, has asked Binh Thuan’s authorities to review its socio-economic development models.
|VFF President Nguyen Thien Nhan speaks at the working session with Binh Thuan leaders.
At a working session with Binh Thuan leaders on Friday, Nhan welcomed the suggestion of calling on organisations, businesses, and people to reserve and use water economically. He urged the locale to summarise the models to work out more effective measures and work with the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations to conduct research into water storage and recycling systems.
Nhan added that Binh Thuan had made the right decision in choosing dragon fruit as its key variety but it needed more corporate measures for developing the product.
A marine ecosystem, associated historical relic sites and famous tourist attractions, are among Binh Thuan’s advantages, he pointed out, asking the province to build a strategy for tourism development and policies to attract and train human resources working in the field.
