Ha Giang (VNA) – A business delegation of Yantai city in the Chinese province of Shandong had a working session with officials of Vietnam’s northernmost province of Ha Giang on July 15 to explore investment opportunities there.

Chairman of the Ha Giang provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Son briefed his guests about local socio-economic development and potential, noting that the mountainous province has a 277km borderline with China and boasts numerous advantages for developing agriculture, forestry, processing and cross-border trade.

He pledged the best possible conditions, including favourable mechanisms and policies, for Yantai businesses to invest in Ha Giang.

Son said he hopes Yantai firms will invest in such projects as cattle farming in Dong Van stone plateau, building a border trade fair centre near Thanh Thuy International Border Gate, and developing eco-tourism in Bac Quang district. He also suggested Chinese companies apply science and technology in farming rare medicinal orchid species in Hoang Su Phi district.

Song Quanfa, Chairman of the Yantai small- and medium-sized enterprises union, highly valued the province’s efforts to improve the local investment climate.

In the near future, the Yantai union will make a fact-finding survey to prepare for building an alcohol production factory, an expressway from Ha Giang’s Thanh Thuy border gate to nearby Tuyen Quang province, and a mineral spring tourism site in Vi Xuyen district, he added.-VNA
