New resolution to map out vision for Red River delta development
Ngoc Mai 16:33, 2022/07/13
Hanoi, as a hub of the Red River delta, should become a modern and smart city when the region is set to take a pioneering role in science, technology, and innovation.

The Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission will propose the Politburo to issuing a new resolution on the development of the Red River delta by 2030, with a vision to 2045.

Head of the Economic Commission Tran Tuan Anh addresses a conference on July 12.

According to the Head of the PCV's Economic Commission Tran Tuan Anh, over the years, the Red River delta, comprising 11 provinces/cities (Hanoi, Haiphong, Quang Ninh, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, Bac Ninh, Vinh Phuc, Thai Binh, Nam Dinh, Ninh Binh, and Ha Nam) has become one of the two major economic engines of Vietnam.

However, he noted, there remain problems that need to be addressed, including the low productivity and lack of incentives to turn innovation and technologies into the main driving forces for growth.

Sharing Tuan Anh’s view, Vice Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyen Thi Ha noted the entire region is still lacking long-term solutions for breakthroughs in sustainable development.

Ha pointed out the inconsistency in developing industrial sectors among provinces/cities, let alone the low added value and competitiveness.

“Shortage of high-quality workforce, low coverage of social insurance, large income gap and high poverty rate in certain provinces/cities are also major issues,” Ha said.

At the conference, experts called for close cooperation among provinces/cities in socio-economic development, along with a shift of focus to innovation and science/technology.

Vice Minister of Science and Technology Nguyen Hoang Giang said the Red river delta would need an ecosystem for innovation with the participation of different parties, including the authorities, businesses, and universities.

Head of the Economic Commission Tran Tuan Anh expected the Red river delta to stay ahead in the development of science, technology, innovation, digital economy, and society.

“More resources are required to foster the development of innovation centers and the formation of training centers for high-quality workforces,” he said.

“Hanoi as the core of the region should become a modern and smart city,” Tuan Anh added.
