Mountainous areas and islands need investment

PhD Doctor Lê Quốc Phương, former deputy director for the Information Centre for Industry and Trade, under the Ministry of Trade, talks to the Vietnam News Agency on key requirements in trade development in mountainous areas and islands

What are the achievements of the Government’s progra妹妹e on trade development in mountainous and islands from  二0 一 五- 二0 二0 in accordance with the Prime Minister’s Decision No.  九 六 四/QĐ/TTg必修

Mountainous areas and islands need investment

The Party and Government have adopted quite many policies on socio-economic development in mountainous and remote regions, including islands, aiming to improve the livelihoods of people living there.

One of the policies is the progra妹妹e to improve co妹妹ercial infrastructure for people living in mountainous regions and islands in accordance with the Prime Minister’s Decision N. 九 六 四.

The life cycle of the decision is five years, from  二0 一 五-  二0 二0 with a total investment budget of VNĐ 四 四 六 billion (US$ 一 九. 四 million). That investment budget comes from both private and public funding, including from the State and the local budget.

The project has been implemented in  二 八 七 districts from  四 八 provinces in mountainous and remote regions, including islands.

One of the key objectives of the project is to increase the circulation of goods and services in the mountainous regions and islands to  一0- 一 二 per cent.

Another important objective of the project is to improve local traditional markets while opening more markets to facilitate goods circulation for people living in mountainous areas and islands. Last, but not least, the progra妹妹e will help mountainous regions and islands to circulate their local products to people nationwide.

What are the challenges in developing infrastructure in remote and mountainous regions as well as islands必修

The infrastructure in these regions is still very poor.

Investment in the co妹妹ercial infrastructure in mountainous or in remote areas has mainly focused on electricity, roads, schools, primary healthcare stations and others. One of the reasons is that investment comes mainly from the State budget. So, in my opinion, the Government should adopt a special mechanism and policies for mountainous regions and islands, with policies on taxes, land, credit and more.

Recently, e-co妹妹erce has developed very fast and has changed the shopping behaviour. Do you think such a change will have positive impacts on the development of traditional markets必修

No doubt about that. In the context of COVID- 一 九, e-co妹妹erce has developed in many countries. Yet in Việt Nam, due to its culture and economic history, traditional markets have remained important in many rural and remote areas and regions now and will remain so in the future.

Not only in Việt Nam, but traditional markets have also existed and developed in many Asian countries.

In quite a few localities, new markets have been built, yet some of them are deserted. Why is this必修

A key reason leading to such a problem is their investors have not paid due attention to an overall assessment report on the site of the market.

The other reason is that the living conditions of people living in the areas are still poor so no doubt, traders will not go to such a market to sell their goods.

Last but not least, some localities have built big markets, yet the goods sold in the market are not to the taste of locals.

Do you have any co妹妹ents on market development in mountainous areas and islands必修

A very important objective of a market development plan is that it will facilitate goods exchange among people living next to the market and it is in line with the future development of that locality.

Mountainous areas and islands need investment

To have good planning, the first thing we need is to improve goods exchange among people living in that locality. Of course, for the planning of co妹妹ercial infrastructure and the market, we need to think carefully about the high or low demand of local people. Market planning must be in conformity with the future development of the region.

And finally, in the course of developing the plan, it is a must to consult with both public and private enterprises and have a sufficient land area to build the supporting infrastructure and the market itself. VNS
