A road in the central province of Quang Ngai was named after late Prime Minister Vo Van Kiet in commemoration of his great service to the inception of the Dung Quat economic zone, and especially the Dung Quat Oil Refinery.

The naming was announced by authorities of central Quang Ngai province on February 22 at a ceremony attended by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.
The Vo Van Kiet road is 23.6 km long linking national highway 1A with the Dung Quat port which forms part of the Dung Quat Oil Refinery.
At the ceremony, the provincial authorities also announced the detailed planning of the Van Tuong Urban Complex.
Covering a land area of 3,828 ha in Binh Son district, the Van Tuong Urban Complex is expected to become one of the urban-industry-service centers for the central region’s key economic area.
It is established to serve as the financial, trade and tourism centre for the Quang Ngai province in particular and the entire central region as a whole.
According to the planning, the complex will include a nature reserve, residential quarters for local people and experts working in the Dung Quat Economic Zone.
On this occasion, the Bank for Industry and Trade of Vietnam donated VND6 billion to Quang Ngai to aid the locality’s construction of four kindergartens and 200 houses for families of those who rendered services to the nation and disadvantaged people.
The Him Lam Joint Stock Company and the Lien Viet Bank sent VND3 billion to the provincial fund for the poor to partly assist those disadvantaged people.
The same day, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung made incense offering to late Prime Minister Pham Van Dong at his memorial house at Duc Tan commune, Mo Duc District in Quang Ngai.
