Soc Trang (VNA) – Firms from the Republic of Korea (RoK) have worked with authorities from the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang to seek cooperation opportunities in construction and health care.

At a working session on June 22 with the DAE HIEN construction group and Gumi GangDong hospital and other businesses, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ngo Hung said Soc Trang is calling for investment in important health projects such as the ear, nose, and throat hospital and the nursing and rehabilitation hospital.

He noted that all communes and towns in Soc Trang have medical stations. The province has three public hospitals and one private hospital with nearly 1,000 beds. 

Soc Trang also appeals for foreign investment in building public service facilities like supermarkets, trade centres and markets.

The Korean firms expressed their wish to cooperate with the Mekong Delta province and said they are willing to provide equipment for construction, health care, industry, wind power, and environmental pollution treatment.

Hung welcomed the cooperation from the Korean businesses and revealed that his province needs investment in 72 projects on infrastructure, trade centres and wind power. - VNA
