Hanoi (VNA) – The Mekong Delta is set to become a sustainable, dynamic and highly efficient agricultural economic hub of the country, the region and the world by 2030.

It is part of the regional master plan for 2021-2030 with a vision to 2050 mentioned in Resolution No.5/NQ- HĐĐPVĐBSCL recently issued by the Mekong Delta Coordinating Council.

The approval of the master plan is expected to make it easier for regional localities to devise their own planning in a way that ensures they are connective, synchronous and systemic together.

Accordingly, the region will comprise agriculture centres, economic corridors and locomotive urban areas with diverse services and industries using modern technology and adapting to climate change. It will develop maritime economy and strengthen inter-regional, domestic and global connectivity, improve the quality of workforce, create a sustainable living environment in tandem with restoring natural resources and important ecological systems, and preserve unique and special cultural identity of ethnic groups.

Further priority will be given to developing key infrastructure of national, regional and inter-provincial significance in the fields of transportation, energy, clean water supply, agriculture centres, education-training, health care, irrigation, disaster prevention and control, and climate change response.
