The south-central coastal province of Ninh Thuan must pay special attention to maintaining political security and social order and safety in close association with safeguarding the national sovereignty over the sea and islands, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has said.

Speaking at a meeting with Ninh Thuan key officials on July 5 during his working tour of the province, the Party leader further said the provincial Party committee needs to continue renovating its way of thinking, focusing on the strengthening of the internal solidarity, making the full use of support from the central Government, and attaching importance to the human factor in its leadership.

“Ninh Thuan needs to draw lessons in its leadership, correctly assess the reality to see its potential, strength, difficulties and limitations so as to work out development strategies and plans for the time to come,” he said, adding that the tasks for the provincial Party committee for the coming tenure remain heavy.

The province was also asked to complete all the goals set by the 12 th congress of its Party committee, and to review and select major problems to be settled so as to create visible changes, especially key projects on transport infrastructure, irrigation, wind power, and marine economy.

The leader took note of the province’s proposals on the issuance of exclusive mechanisms and policies in the implementation of the nuclear power plant project, and on the supply of additional capital to accelerate the completion of the coastal road system in the province.-VNA
