By 2030, the gross regional domestic product (GRDP) per capita of the Central Highlands will reach VND 130 million (around USD 5,000), with the annual growth rate of 7-7.5 percent from 2021 through 2030.
Such is one of the goals set forth in Government Resolution 152/NQ-CP, on the Action Program to implement the Political Bureau’s Resolution 23-NQ/TW, providing orientations for socio-economic development and national defense and security maintenance in the Central Highlands through 2030, with a vision toward 2045.

Specifically, by 2030, it is targeted that the agro-forestry-fishery sector will account for 29.5 percent of the Central Highlands’ GRDP, industry and construction, 27 percent, and services, 38 percent.
At the same time, the Action Program also sets the goal that the region will have 25-30 percent of its labor force vocationally trained by 2030.
Besides, the rate of poor households by the multidimensional poverty standard will see an annual decline of 1-1.5 percent; while that of poor ethnic minority households will fall by over 3 percent year on year.
In the education sector, educational institutions meeting national standards will account for 60 percent for early childhood education institutions and upper secondary schools, 65 percent for primary schools, and 75 percent for lower secondary schools.
The local healthcare sector will have 32 patient beds and 11 medical doctors per 10,000 people with the health insurance coverage of 90 percent.
Regarding environmental issues, it is expected that the forest coverage rate in the region will reach 47 percent by 2030, and the entire local population will have access to hygienic and clean water.
In addition, all hazardous wastes from production, business, service and medical activities will be collected and treated, while all operating industrial parks will have centralized wastewater treatment systems up to environmental standards.
In order to achieve the above targets, the Prime Minister requests relevant agencies to intensify the dissemination of information so as to create a consensus in the formulation and implementation of the Action Program and other programs and plans under Resolution 23-NQ/TW.
Other tasks include promoting regional economic, cultural, social and human resource development in a sustainable manner; developing important transport infrastructure facilities and unique tourism; improving interregional connection institutions and policies; firmly maintaining national defense and security, and stepping up external relation work; and facilitating the building of the Party and political system.-
