Vinh Long (VNA) - The Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long is planning to make changes to its socio-economic master plan to reflect changes on the ground.

Truong Dang Vinh Phuc, Director of the provincial Department of Planning and Investment, told a conference last week that the changes would focus on industry, industrial complex infrastructure, rural agriculture, culture-tourism, transport infrastructure, urban housing development, and trade services.

The province’s main sectors are agriculture, food processing, energy, manufacture and repair of agricultural machinery and vehicles, wood processing, garment and textiles, and footwear.

Le Quang Trung, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said this year Vinh Long plans to improve its growth models by enhancing labour productivity and competitiveness. 

It plans to enhance cooperation with other localities in the delta to develop its services and tourism sectors, he said. 

The province would continue to restructure agriculture by building new rural areas and focus on building value chains for and promoting its major agricultural products.

Last year, the province’s agricultural output had been worth 10.59 trillion VND, according to the provincial People’s Committee.-VNA
