The Southwest Region Steering Committee on July 17 hosted a conference adopting mechanisms and policies to develop Phu Quoc island into a tourism area of international standard.
Participants discussed mechanisms and policies related to organizational structure, human resources and services, planning work, infrastructure development and investment capital.
Deputy head of the committee, Bui Ngoc Suong said the development of Phu Quoc island was still far from matching its full potential, and required incentive policies to accelerate the development process.
In his speech, Deputy Prime Minister, Nguyen Van Ninh who is also head of the committee, underlined the need to devise a long-term vision for planning work and infrastructure facilities, to fully tap the Island’s potential and to carefully consider implementing a project to establish Phu Quoc city.
In future, the Government’s Party Organisation will report to the Politburo on a master plan to develop Phu Quoc island.
