Comprehensive and sustainable agricultural growth, based on restructuring for improved productivity and value of goods production, is another priority. In addition, Bac Lieu is tackling poverty and developing craft villages.

Business climate improvement is also key to the local development. The province is supporting business establishment and cooperatives’ operations, forming a startup ecosystem, and financially helping enterprises recruit and train unskilled labours.
