National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung has asked Dak Lak province to coordinate with other Central Highlands localities to make the region a destination for domestic and foreign investors.

NA Chairman Hung made the request on Oct. 15 at his working session with Dak Lak authorities to inspect the implementation of the Party and State’s policies for ethnic minority people and prepare for the upcoming second session of the 13th NA.

The NA leader also asked Dak Lak to have a good planning and policy to turn the Central Highlands into the country’s strong economic region and lay a firm foundation for ensuring security and defence.

Hung said at the upcoming session, the NA will focus on socio-economic development issues relating to policies to improve living conditions for ethnic people in the Central Highlands.

The NA leader said he will ask NA agencies to consider a resolution on policies for ethnic minority towards the target of bridging the gap among the rich and the poor, increasing the quality of human resources and bringing into play potentials of this important region.

Secretary of the Dak Lak Provincial Party’s Committee Nie Thuat told the NA leader that the province had only two districts with the poverty rate of more than 25 percent by the end of 2010 under the standard set for the 2006-2010 period.

On the same day, Hung met with voters in Dung A and Dung B villages in Ea Khal commune, E A H’Leo district./.
