In the speech on the 30th anniversary of Binh Thuan's re-establishment, the province’s Party leader Duong Van An reviewed the journey of 30 years of Binh Thuan’s re-establishment. In December 1991, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (term 8th) decided to separate Thuan Hai province into the 2 provinces of Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan; the newly-separated provinces started operation on April 1st, 1992. Since the date of re-establishment, Binh Thuan had been included in one of the poor provinces of the South Central Coast region. Over 30 years, under the leadership of the Central Party Committee, the Government and the support of ministers, central branches, and localities, especially thanks to the solidarity of and endeavor of the people from all walks of life, Binh Thuan has so far earned many significant achievements in many areas.

The most vital achievement is the development of an irrigation system including 78 irrigation systems and hundreds of small-scale and large-scale works with a total capacity of over 400 million cubic meters. Thanks to such achievement, the local planting area has actively increased by 4 times as Binh Thuan is known as one of the sunniest and driest provinces in Vietnam. Remarkably, with the initiative of connecting irrigation networks, water has been brought to arid and deserted lands; thereby strongly reviving the potential and advantages of each land in the province.

With bravery, intelligence, and high determination, the province has gradually turned its difficulties into comparative advantages. The local authorities have boldly looked for a suitable direction that can effectively tap the province's huge potential and advantages. First and foremost, tourism is the earliest sector that had been efficiently exploited. If the local tourism sector was not included in the province’s economic structure in 1991, up to now, Binh Thuan tourism has grown tremendously with an average growth rate of 31.3% per year, contributing to the province's GRDP of over 9%, gradually becoming a spearhead economic sector of the province.

Originating from a purely agricultural province, Binh Thuan has accelerated its economic restructuring, and rapidly developed industry and services. Of which, the energy industry has had a breakthrough development, becoming the main driving force that can promote the province’s industrial development. The whole province currently has 48 operational power plants in the types of hydroelectricity, thermal power, solar power, and wind power, with a total capacity of 6,520 MW; the designed electricity output is about 31.6 billion kWh/year. In the coming time, LNG and offshore wind power plants will continue to be invested. It is believed that, in the not-too-distant future, Binh Thuan will become a major energy center of the country.

With the equitable development of economic sectors based on advantages and potentials, the province's economy saw quite quick development. The growth of the province's gross domestic product is always higher than the national average, creating a clear change in growth model innovation and improving production capacity and scale of the economy; the value of the province's gross domestic product in 2021 is 22 times higher than in 1992. The province's domestic budget revenue from 77 billion VND (in 1992) increased to 8,064 billion VND (in 2021), an increase of 105 times and ranks 8th out of 14 provinces, cities in the North Central and South Central Coast regions

Binh Thuan’s face has undergone a comprehensive renovation. Up to now, the province has 14 urban centers, 69 out of 93 communes, and 3 districts meeting new-style rural standards. The material and spiritual life of the people is increasing day by day. Notably, Per capita income from 1.35 million VND in 1992 to 48.92 million VND in 2021 (36.2 times, an average increase of 13.24%/year), ranked 18th in the country and ranked 2nd in the North Central and South Central Coast regions. The political system from the province to the grassroots is constantly and strongly consolidated. The work of building the Party and government is always concerned by Party committees at all levels.

At the celebration, Secretary An called upon the whole political system, departments, agencies, cadres, and people to continue promoting the revolutionary tradition and solidarity spirit to build the homeland of Binh Thuan more and more cultured, civilized, and equitable.
