Bac Ninh (VNA) – Northern Bac Ninh province and Thailand’s King Prajadhipok’s Institute (KPI) exchanged experience in socio-economic development during a meeting in the province on March 15.

Welcoming the visiting delegation, Permanent Vice Chairman of the province Nguyen Tien Nhuong said the meeting is a good opportunity for the two sides to learn the experience of socio-economic development from each other and increase mutual understanding that would pave the way for further cooperation.

At the meeting, the provincial authority shared experience in the locality’s urban development between 1997 and 2016 with a vision towards 2050 and its process for economic transition.

The two sides discussed ways to address key challenges in shifting from agricultural to industrial economies, conserving traditional culture during the modernisation process, and developing hi-tech industry while protecting the environment.

The Thai delegation also learned firsthand about the province’s investment incentives in order to consider future investment opportunities here.

On the occasion, they visited the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park in Tu Son, Bac Ninh.

The KPI is an independent, academic organisation that works under the supervision of Thailand’s National Assembly.-VNA
