Quang Ngai (VNA) – The central province of Quang Ngai is expected to witness remarkable strides in 2017 and the following years to pace up with the neighbouring localities.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc expressed his wish while visiting local authorities and people on January 30 on the occasion of the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet).

He said Quang Ngai, which is home to the country’s only oil refinery - Dung Quat and numerous historical relic sites, has a lot of advantages to grow stronger. 

The island district of Ly Son, in particular, is receiving a strong wave of investment to become a spotlight in the central region, he added.

He suggested increasing connectivity with proximities such as Quang Nam, Da Nang, and Binh Dinh to spur the regional economic growth, while focusing on the development of tourism services.

The PM also directed Quang Ngai to put forth more incentives to attract investment in large-scale projects, especially in industrial parks and economic zones, but still ensuring environmental protection.-VNA
