Nghe An and Ha Tinh share a lot of cultural similarities and revolutionary tradition, he said, adding that the two localities should develop connectivity to optimise resources to serve development. In addition, more attention should also be paid to the management and use of water resources, economic development, the settlement of social issues, and in coping with major challenges like climate change.
