At the meeting, the provincial Party Committee reviewed its socio-economic development for the first six months of the year and its implementation of Politburo Resolution 49 entitled "Strategy on Judiciary Reform."

The province’s tourism sector attracted 1.263 visitors, an increase of nearly 15 percent over the same period last year, Huynh Van Ti, Secretary of Binh Thuan Party Committee said.

The province has also nearly fulfilled targets for its temporary and dilapidated house elimination plan, said Ti.
