Alongside economic development, progress has also been made in administrative reform and business environment improvement, with the timely rollout of solutions to remove obstacles for businesses, Ho Quang Buu, Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee said on July 31.
Quang Nam is located in the south-central coastal region of Vietnam. It shares borders with Da Nang city and Thua Thien-Hue province to the north, and Quang Ngai province to the south. The province faces the Bien Dong Sea (South China Sea) to the east, and borders Kon Tum province and Laos to the west.
The province comprises 15 districts, one township, and two cities, with 241 communes, wards, and towns. With a total natural area of 10,406 square kilometers, the locality is home to a population of nearly 1.7 million belonging to 34 ethnic groups.
The locality has a coastline of 125 kilometers and a well-developed transportation network, including National Highway 1A, the Da Nang - Quang Ngai Expressway, seven other national highways, and the North-South Railway passing through its territory.
There are three seaports, including the Ky Ha deep-water port, Chu Lai Airport, and several waterways. The province is home to an open economic zone and numerous industrial zones that attract a large number of laborers.
It boasts two UNESCO World Heritage Sites (Hoi An Ancient Town and My Son Sanctuary), along with rich historical traditions and diverse culture, helping lure millions of domestic and foreign tourists.
According to a report presented at a meeting between the provincial steering committee for human rights and representatives from 22 centrally-run press agencies, last year, Quang Nam’s economy posted high growth, even exceeding the set targets.
Its economic growth rate reached 11.2%, higher than that of 2021 (5.04%), making Quang Nam rank 11th out of the 63 provinces and cities nationwide in this regard. The economic scale was valued at over VND116 trillion ($4.8 billion), representing a 1.18-fold increase (VND17.5 trillion) compared to 2019.
Its state budget collection exceeded VND32.14 trillion (surpassing the estimate by 35% and up over 40% year-on-year).
Apart from economic development, efforts have been made in streamlining administrative procedures and improving the investment and business environment, with the timely deployment of solutions to untangle knots for businesses.
Attention has been paid to ensuring social welfare and stabilising people’s lives, the report said.

The borderline between Quang Nam (Vietnam) and Sekong (Laos) has a length of 157,488 kilometers with 60 border markers and seven landmarks along the Truong Son mountain range.
Its Nam Giang and Tay Giang districts border Dak Chung and Ka Lum of Laos with 14 border communes. The combined population of Nam Giang and Tay Giang exceeds 46,000 belonging to four ethnic minority groups (with the Co Tu making up the majority, about 72.9% of the population). The population density is low, and most of local residents engage in farming.
Quang Nam successfully hosted numerous cultural and tourism events, along with international conferences and workshops, contributing to promoting local culture and people to international friends, notably activities within the National Tourism Year 2022.
In the first months of this year, amidst common challenges facing the national economy, the provincial authorities have proactively and drastically directed the implementation of various solutions to cope with such unfavorable factors, while seeking markets, raising productivity, improving the investment environment, and maintaining national security.
As many as 8,400 businesses are operating in the province. In the first five months of this year, the locality counted 513 new businesses, with a total registered capital of nearly VND3.136 trillion.
Buu stressed that the province has paid due attention to the human rights work, especially the implementation of policies on socio-economic development, ethnic and religious affairs and social welfare, thus ensuring people's living standards and human rights.
The provincial steering committee for human rights has worked as an advisor to the provincial Party Committee and the People's Committee to better ensure human rights.
The committee has also disseminated the Party's policies and guidelines, and the State’s laws, and created conditions for people from all walks of life to access reliable sources of information and exercise their rights to supervision.

Measures have been taken to prevent distortions of “democracy” and “human rights,” the report said.
Last year, the province organized a training course on human rights for leaders and key officials from departments, committees, agencies, and localities, who were equipped with knowledge and theory on human rights protection, contributing to enhancing the effectiveness of human rights activities.
At the meeting, representatives from the provincial Party Committee and People's Committee expressed their hope that after their field trip, the journalists will gain an insight into the land and people of Quang Nam.
Speaking at the meeting, Major General Nguyen Van Ky, Deputy Chief of the standing office of the Government's Steering Committee for Human Rights, lauded Quang Nam for its all-round achievements.
He also suggested the locality intensify the dissemination of the results of the implementation of policies on social welfare and livelihoods in ethnic minority-inhabited areas.
Economic development should go in tandem with ensuring public order and security, especially for ethnic minority groups, and the preservation and promotion of traditional culture, he continued.
The officer noted that the field trip aims to promote socio-economic and tourism potential and strengths, and culture and traditions of ethnic groups in Quang Nam, and human rights outcomes and models there./.
