Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has told authorities of central Khanh Hoa province to endeavour to turn the locality into a development centre in the south central coastal region.

To realise the goal, the Deputy PM asked the province to closely work with central ministries and sectors to take solutions for smoothly implementing policies and mechanisms toward a sustainable development in the future, said a statement issued by the Government Office on July 31 regarding his recent working session with provincial leading officials.

During the session, Dam praised efforts and socio-economic achievements made by Khanh Hoa in recent time, while suggesting the province call for more social involvement in health care with focus on the building of hospitals and health care services for people.

The provincial People’s Committee needs to enhance its management on tourism and personnel training for the sector, helping improve service quality and promote Vietnam’s image, he said.-VNA
