Ha Nam (VNA) – The northern province of Ha Nam has called on Japanese businesses to invest in modernising local agriculture, according to Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Xuan Dong.

The official told representatives of nearly 40 Japanese enterprises, which are scoping out Ha Nam’s agricultural investment climate on July 7, that the province regards developing the farming sector as one of the key economic tasks in a bid to raise the income of local farmers.

Six Japanese businesses have registered to invest in the local farming sector, he said, listing an array of incentives for foreign investors in the province regarding land lease and infrastructure construction like transport, electricity and irrigation.

Joko Akira, Director of Kokorozashi Network company, praised Ha Nam’s good investment environment as well as the locality’s support for Japanese small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

He said the businesses joining this field trip are mostly SMEs specialising in the spheres of transportation and farm produce processing, noting his hope that the province will create more optimal conditions for these Japanese firms.-VNA
