The re-establishment of Thua Thien-Hue opened up a
new period in the province’s history of building and development, he said.
Since then, the local economy has developed towards
green and sustainable growth and undergone restructuring based on the local
potentials and advantages in culture, heritage, education, health and
tourism. The service sector now made up 55.7 percent of the total gross
regional domestic product (GRDP). Tourism thrived to gradually become a
spearhead of the economy.
The province posted an average economic growth 7.2
percent per year in the 1989-2018 period, which resulted in the economy’s
size expanded seven times. Meanwhile, GDP per capita in 2018 increased by
81.6 times compared to 1990.
Last year, the province channeled into the State
budget VND7.8 trillion (USD336.6 million).
Chairwoman Ngan praised the achievements that Thua
Thien-Hue has gained over the past 30 years.
On behalf of the Party, State, and Politburo, the
top legislator presented the first-class Independence Order of the President
to the Thua Thien-Hue provincial Party Committee, authorities and people in
recognition of their significant contributions to the cause of national
building and defence.
