The southern province of Binh Duong will draw more practical policies to help enterprises, including those from Taiwan (China), maintain and develop production activities, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Van Nam has said.

At an August 14 meeting with representatives from 11 Taiwanese businesses operating in the Song Than 2 Industrial Park, Nam said that the local authorities will make all it can to provide the best assistance to the firms.

The Taiwanese enterprises, which faced many difficulties in recovering their production and business after incidents sparking from workers’ rallies protesting against China ’s illegal actions in Vietnam ’s waters three months ago, have received aid from the Government and local authorities over the past time.

They said that the most difficulty they are facing now is the clearance of damaged workshops and warehouses due to insurance companies’ delay in evaluating losses.

The firms proposed that local authorities take measures to accelerate the evaluation and compensation progress as two of them are still yet to normalise their operation.

Chen Bai Xiu from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Ho Chi Minh City said that Taiwanese investors still want to continue doing business in Binh Duong, suggesting the province speed up assistance to them.

Local leaders promised to urge insurance companies to hasten compensation for enterprises suffering losses, while considering giving support to those that did not buy insurance as well as applying new investment policies for them.-VNA
