Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has instructed the northern port city of Hai Phong to create breakthroughs to match its position and role in the Red River Delta and Vietnam as a whole.
He made the request while visiting key projects in the city on May 13.
He said that developing socio-economic infrastructure, especially roads, seaports, industrial parks, and non-tariff zones, is one of three strategic breakthroughs targeted by the Party and State, which have issued many resolutions, directives, mechanisms, and policies to promote their development.
The Politburo issued a resolution on the development of the Red River Delta and another on Hai Phong city by 2030 with a vision to 2045, to firmly bolster the Hanoi - Hai Phong - Quang Ninh development triangle.
Among Red River Delta localities, Hai Phong has received the largest investment from the State but its contribution to the country remains modest. It therefore needs to create breakthroughs to deserve such levels of investment, Prime Minister Chinh said.
