The Chairman of the People's Committee of Quang Ngai Province highlighted the goal that by 2030, Quang Ngai strives to become a relatively well-developed province in the country, with a per capita income at least matching the national average.

It serves as a vital tool for Quang Ngai Province to chart the course, coordinate, and manage all economic and social development activities, along with territorial spatial development within the province in the upcoming period.

This plan has identified the spatial and developmental vision through a structure consisting of two growth-driving centers, three urban centers, four strategic economic corridors, and six dynamic economic spatial zones.

Quang Ngai takes great pride in being the epicenter of Sa Huynh culture, one of Vietnam's three ancient cultures dating back 2,500-3,000 years. The region is also renowned for being a sacred land with exceptional individuals, revolutionary traditions, the homeland of the Hoang Sa naval fleet, and the birthplace of the heroes of the Ba To uprising, along with numerous patriotic figures, revolutionaries, and adept leaders of the nation.
