Can Tho (VNA) - Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on June 21 asked the Mekong Delta – Vietnam’s biggest food basket – to make most of the Party and State’s policies dedicated to the region for its further development and a better life of its people. The PM made the request while chairing a conference to announce a master plan and investment promotion programme for the region in the 2021-2030 period, with the theme "Mekong Delta: New thinking - New vision - New opportunities - New values”. He said that the conference and related events are of significance, containing the Party, State and people’s expectations and confidence in promoting the region’s socio-economic development, and contributing to concretising the 13th National Party Congress’s Resolution as well as the Party, State and Government’s major policies on the regional development in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2045. In the immediate future, regional localities should focus on well implementing the COVID-19 prevention and control to facilitate socio-economic development, bettering the regional planning, and considering it a key task in the coming time. They also emphasised the role and position of Can Tho as the centre of the Mekong Delta in regional development linkage; and proposed orientations to promote development links between the region with Ho Chi Minh City and the southern key economic region.
