Quang Ninh (VNA) – The People’s Council of Quang Ninh province organised its 21st session on December 7, setting a target of attaining an annual growth of about 10 percent in its gross regional domestic product (GRDP) in the 2021 – 2025 period.

At this meeting, the provincial People's Council discussed and issued a resolution on the province’s 5-year socio-economic development plan for 2021 - 2025 with comprehensive solutions.

Accordingly, the province strives to continue promoting the implementation of three strategic breakthroughs, with priority given to key transport projects and projects with high connectivity, economic zones, industrial parks, and seaport infrastructure to form international service and transport infrastructure connection hubs.

It also set to complete Van Don - Mong Cai expressway, Ha Long - Cam Pha coastal road, Cua Luc 1 and 3 bridges in 2021, and the western route of the high-speed riverside road by 2025.
The council also focused on assessing the implementation of socio-economic development tasks in 2020. Amid the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to the right and timely policies of the provincial Party Committee and the drastic direction of the provincial People's Committee, the province has successfully implemented the "dual goals" of COVID-19 control and socio-economic development, achieving an economic growth rate of over 10 percent in 2020.

In 2021, Quang Ninh aims to maintain its GRDP growth rate at more than 10 percent and total state budget revenue of over 51 trillion VND.

The province strives to maintain its position in the top group in the country in terms of the provincial competitiveness index (PCI), the Public Administration Reform Index (PAR Index), the Satisfaction Index of Public Administrative Services (SIPAS) and the provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI)./.
