Dear compatriots, comrades, officers, and soldiers!
The Year of the Cat 2023 had many difficulties and challenges. However, with the solidarity, joint efforts, and consensus of the entire Party, government, and people, Binh Duong province has gained important and comprehensive achievements in many fields.
Significantly, the province's gross regional domestic product (GRDP) increased by nearly 6%, which is higher than the national average and the highest in the Southern Key Economic Quadrangle. According to the most recent announcement by the General Statistics Office, Binh Duong continues to be the locality with the highest per capita income in the country.
Total social development investment capital reached nearly 165,000 billion VND, an increase of 11%, export and import surplus reached over 8.7 billion USD, and total budget revenue was nearly 70,000 billion VND, reaching 106% of the estimate assigned by the Prime Minister. With the efforts and consensus of the political system and the people, the province's public investment work in 2023 had bright spots with a high disbursement rate. Many key inter-regional projects had been started or completed in preparation for construction investment. Besides, Binh Duong continues to be a reliable destination for foreign investors with capital of 1.5 billion USD and more than 4.1 billion USD from the domestic business community.
Binh Duong has also effectively implemented the tasks of Project 06 of the Prime Minister. It is one of the leading localities in successfully piloting pilot models, bringing practical benefits to people and businesses. In particular, Binh Duong Innovation Region has been honored by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) as the Top 1 community with typical smart development strategies in 2023.
In the context of economic difficulties, the province has effectively implemented social security policies, ensuring the well-being of its citizens both materially and spiritually. The province organized many important economic and political events and meaningful activities on the occasion of celebrating major holidays of the country and the province. Moreover, national defense - security, social order, and safety have been maintained.
These meaningful results will be an important motivation, contributing to strengthening trust, and creating favorable conditions and opportunities for Binh Duong to grow richer and stronger.
Dear compatriots, comrades, and the business community of the province!
Economic growth and achievements in the socio-economic development of Binh Duong are significant because they are the result of the persistent, diligent, and creative efforts of people, businesses, and the entire government system. They are the hard work and dedication of entrepreneurs, the sincere support of the people and workers for the province's development policies and guidelines, and the spirit of solidarity and working together to overcome difficulties in recent times.
On behalf of the Binh Duong Provincial Leaders, I would like to sincerely thank all the people, officers, soldiers, and business community for upholding the spirit of patriotism and solidarity that led to success in 2023.
2024 is a year of significance in successfully implementing the tasks of the Resolution of the 11th Provincial Party Congress and the 5-year socio-economic development plan for the period 2021 - 2026. Besides the basic advantages, the economy is forecast to still have many challenges due to the world's economic and geopolitical situation. The PPC is determined to carry out key tasks effectively and efficiently according to the Resolutions of the Government, the Provincial Party Committee, and the Provincial People's Council right from the beginning of the year. In particular, the province continues to make good use of opportunities, focus on socio-economic development in a stable and sustainable direction, pay attention to investing in key projects, effectively solve difficulties of business, promote administrative reform and digital transformation, improve transparency and competitiveness, create a favorable environment to attract investment, develop production and business; and improve people's lives. The province will also ensure national defense and security and maintain political stability, social order, and safety. In addition, it continues to improve the effectiveness of foreign affairs activities and expand international economic integration.
In this sacred moment, with the will and determination to develop our province more prosperous, on behalf of the provincial leadership, once again, I would like to wish all compatriots, comrades, every family, and every citizen in Binh Duong good health, happiness and success in the new year!
Happy New Year - New determination - New spirit - New victory!
