On April 27, the meeting on appraising the planning of Hau Giang province 2021-2030 took place under the chair of Deputy Minister of planning and Investment Tran Quoc Phuong, vice chairman of the provincial planning appraisal council.

Phuong said that Hau Giang had a very favourable natural position, adjacent to the Hau River, with a dense system of rivers and canals, great potential for water transport andeco-tourism.

Hau Giang has fertile and flat land, at the end of the flood zone, not directly affected by tides, with a mild and stable climate and little impact from natural disasters.

In addition, it is located near the two main development axes of the Mekong Delta region (Ho Chi Minh City - Can Tho - Ca Mau axis, and the southern Hau river axis), being the main waterway and maritime transport channel of delta.

In 2011-2020, the province's GRDP reached 5.83 per cent per year.

"Outcomes in recent years have not been commensurate with the province's advantages and potential, with economic growth not sustainable, the labour structure shifting slowly, low productivity, and weak competitiveness in the economy," said Phuong.

According to Nghiem Xuan Thanh, member of Hau Giang Party Committee, Hau Giang is a late-starting province, so it needs a breakthrough.

"Hau Giang province clearly understands the position and importance of planning. So, the province's planning for 2021-2030, converges in the spirit of innovation - breakthrough - determination - aspiration," said Thanh.

In the draft Hau Giang provincial planning 2021-2030, Hau Giang has sets a goal to become a province with a controlled industrial production by 2030, and not being an 'economic-difficulties' province.

The province will balance budget revenues and expenditures, not be too dependent on central support. The face of rural areas and household income will be improved significantly, striving to be in the group of four provinces and cities with the highest per capita income in the Mekong Delta.

The province strives to reach 7-7.5 per cent per year of economic growth in 2021-2025, and 10-12 per cent per year in 2026-2030.

To realise its goals, Hau Giang provincial planning to create breakthroughs in development, covering spatial strategy, economic strategy, and management strategy.
