A workshop to introduce adjustments to Hue city’s master plan took place in Hanoi on November 19, in a bid to call for investment and turn the central province of Thua Thien-Hue into a centrally-governed city in the future.

Project Director Ohn Yeong-te said the master plan, funded with non-refundable aid from the Korea International Cooperation Agency, is divided into three stages.

During 2011-2015, several key sectors that have potential to draw short-term investment will be chosen to drive durable economic growth.

Between 2016 and 2020, industries, services and sectors linked with planned development will come under the radar.

From 2021-2030, the province will make the most of hi-tech sectors to create high added value.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Cao vowed all possible resources to overhaul administrative procedures and create a legal environment that is conducive to future production and training.

The province will improve a system of urban infrastructure in transport, culture, tourism, healthcare, education and science-technology, raising its reputation as a major hub of the region and the whole country, he said.

To this end, Thua Thien-Hue will ensure the progress of key tourism projects like Chan May – Lang Co economic zone, Phu Bai and Phong Dien industrial parks, he added.

Sweeping changes will also be seen in general education and vocational training, with attention paid to rural areas and the workforce in the tourism sector, industrial zones and local hospitals.-VNA
