A highlight of the visit was a field trip to Ma Da stream in Dong Phu district, where he spoke with local authorities about a plan to build roads to connect Binh Phuoc with neighboring Dong Nai province, and other provinces in the southern region.
The roads will also be connected to major traffic routes in the region, as well as to the Cai Mep-Thi Vai port in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, and the Long Thanh International Airport in Dong Nai province.
The construction of new traffic infrastructure would be pivotal to the socio-economic development of Binh Phuoc, the PM said during the field trip.
He asked local authorities to conduct thorough research and come up with the “shortest, most effective” construction plans, which require the least land clearance and leave as few consequences to the locality as possible.
The PM also visited the CPV Food Complex and attended the launching ceremony of the Hayat Kimya Vietnam factory, both located in Becamex Binh Phuoc Industrial Park. The former is the largest chicken processing complex in Southeast Asia, and the latter is a USD 25 million diaper production factory invested by Turkey.
Speaking at the ceremony, PM Chinh said the Turkish corporation’s commitment to expanding its business in Vietnam showed that the country was an attractive destination for international investment.
He stressed that Binh Phuoc had all it needed to develop, especially in the industrial sector, but had not lived up to its potential. That’s why good development of infrastructure, human resources, public administration, planning, management, and environmental protection was essential to helping it grow.__(VNS/VLLF)
