Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung urged the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum yesterday to use its natural resources to reduce poverty.


Meeting with provincial leaders yesterday to assess socio-economic development work in 2013 and plans for 2014, Dung stressed that the poverty level — nearly 20 per cent — remained high. He instructed the leaders to focus on growing crops that could generate higher revenue, such as rubber, coffee, corn and local specialities, and increasing the use of technology in production.


He also emphasised the necessity of concrete policies to attract businesses to invest in rural areas.


Ha Ban, provincial party committee secretary, said Kon Tum managed economic growth of 12.4 per cent in 2013 and progress was made in healthcare, education and new rural areas.


In 2014, he said, the province hoped to raise its GDP to 13 per cent, focus on higher-added value products such as rubber and coffee, increase investment in livestock breeding and improve management of land, minerals and natural resources.


In addition, the province would continue maintaining border security and fostering cooperation with bordering provinces in Cambodia and Laos.
