PM wants Dung Quat to become national petrochemical, energy hub

Prime Minsiter Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Thursday discussed with leaders of Quang Ngai province measures to boost key socio-economic projects, including the Dung Quat oil refinery.

He said Quang Ngai is still a poor province and needs to work harder toward stronger development. "Quang Ngai must make the Dung Quat economic zone a national hub for petrochemical and energy. There are many projects that need to be boosted and integrated into the national energy plan," Mr. Phuc said.

Prime Minister Phuc urged Quang Ngai province to boost transport infrastructure, particularly its airport and key roads, including the Da Nang-Dung Quat expressway and coastal roads.
