Since the beginning of this year, the provincial
Party Committee has drastically instructed the implementation of the tasks of
COVID-19 prevention and control and socio-economic development.
Thanks to synchronous, suitable solutions, Hoa
Binh has brought the pandemic under control, maintained pandemic-free zones,
and gradually restore socio-economic activities in the new context.
In the first ninth months of this year, the
province’s gross regional domestic product (GRDP) grew some 8.3 percent, with
agro-forestry-fishery accounting for 18.49 percent; industry-construction,
45.39 percent; services, 31.07 percent; and product tax, 5.05 percent.
Agricultural production has remained stable,
with marked progress seen in many fields. Meanwhile, the building of new-style
rural areas and the implementation of the One Commune, One Product (OCOP) have
reaped pragmatic results.
Hoa Binh’s industrial production index expanded
10 percent year-on-year. Its export revenue stood at about 807.8 million USD,
up 10.5 percent.
The locality has also made strides in
administrative reform, site clearance and disbursement (70 percent).
The Party Committee, however, pointed out many
limitations and shortcomings that need to be handled.
To complete targets and tasks set for 2021, it
asked departments, agencies and localities to seriously roll out the action
programme implementing the resolution adopted at the 13th National Party
Congress, and the resolution of the 17th provincial Party Congress, and tasks
Synchronous solutions are needed to speed up
State budget collection in 2021, and better perform the land clearance work,
the committee said.
It also ordered mobilising resources for the
early construction of an inter-regional route, the Hoa Lac-Hoa Binh expressway,
and the first phase of the Hoa Binh-Moc Chau expressway.
Apart from accelerating disbursement to complete
the 2021 plan, drastic solutions should be taken to further reform
administrative procedures, improve the local investment climate, and raise the
provincial competitiveness index.
The committee also stressed the need to
effectively utilise investments, especially in transport infrastructure,
industrial parks and clusters and tourism infrastructure.
It urged further reviewing planning at
industrial parks and clusters, and special heed to COVID-19 prevention and
control, towards safe adaptation to the pandemic as instructed by the
Government, natural disaster response, and measures to ensure political
stability, and social order and safety.
