The revised planning tasks must be updated to implement unanimously.

Regarding land, the locality must review and re-statistic the land fund, calculate and advise the Provincial People's Committee to exploit and use it effectively. Regarding tourism products, in order to achieve the level of international tourist resorts, district leaders need to have an overview and learn from similar tourist attractions in the production plan to advise the Provincial People's Committee to attract and call for investment. Con Dao is oriented to the development of high-end tourism, so it is necessary to pay attention to every small detail such as landscapes, roads, signs, bars, and shops... all must be methodically managed and standardized to create a beautiful aesthetic face for tourism. "Important projects being implemented in Con Dao such as garbage disposal, power supply, domestic water reservoirs are extremely urgent, departments, branches, and districts of Con Dao need to accompany, supervise and support immediately within their competence", the Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee requested.
