Rome (VNA) – Vinh Phuc province welcomes all Italian investors, particularly those from the Tuscany region, as its strengths in wooden furniture, footwear and apparels production are similar to that of Tuscany.

Chairman of the Vinh Phuc provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Tri was speaking at a recent workshop on investment opportunities in the locality held in Florence, North Italy.

He said his locality has set to go industrialised and become an industrial, services and tourism centre of the region and the nation.

Vinh Phuc is, therefore, working to attract ODA and assistance from non-governmental organisations, and encourage investors to engage in the development of industrial zones, information technology, machinery manufacturing and assembly, electronics, bio-technology and supporting industries.

The province will create the most favourable conditions for investors, as it considers them its trustful and long-term partners, he said.

Vinh Phuc and Tuscany - one of the six main economic regions of Italy- hold much cooperation potential in their strengths of garment and textiles, footwear, and chemical and could go into new fields, such as medical equipment and technologies, culture, tourism and farm produce processing, he added.

Stefano Ciuoffo, Minister of Economic Development of Tuscany Region, stated that the workshop offered a good chance for both sides to discuss business opportunities and promote potential partnerships.

He spoke of potential, prestige and dynamism of Vinh Phuc in attracting foreign investment, while pledging to act to connect Italian and Vinh Phuc enterprises.

Earlier, the Vinh Phuc official had a meeting with Tuscany leaders, during which they agreed that the two sides’ relations should be promoted further through the signing of cooperation agreements.

A Tuscany business delegation will attend the Vietnam Export 2016 and make a fact-finding tour of Vinh Phuc in November.-VNA
