Addressing an online meeting held alongside the Dak Nong provincial leaders on Thursday, the Prime Minister noted that the province holds an important strategic position in the Central Highlands region and possesses plenty of untapped potential in terms of its own development.

He said, “Dak Nong should develop its industries of its strength, such as mining and farm produce processing, especially in relation to hi-tech agriculture. During talks with the New Zealand Prime Minister yesterday, we touched upon the possibility of increasing the export of avocado and kiwi, of which avocado is a specialty of Vietnam in general and the Central Highlands region in particular. This is a great chance for us to expand the consumption market for this kind of fruit.”

The Prime Minister requested that Dak Nong better manage its land, protect local forests, and increase forest coverage, in addition to caring about social security, poverty reduction, education, training, as well as striving to improve the quality of human resources, considering this a sustainable way out of poverty.
