“Ca Mau province always considers the success of businesses as our success," Hai said.

The province is now home to nearly 3,900 businesses with total registered capital of over 44 trillion VND (1.9 billion USD).

In the future, Ca Mau will implement some major measures to create the best conditions for businesses including reviewing planning of industrial zones and clusters to attract large-scale projects and accelerating administrative reforms, the chairman said.

This year, it will also facilitate the operation of the local business association to help firms address their difficulties and connect them with State agencies.

Hai added the association’s operation is a must to not only assess the satisfaction of enterprises with State agencies but also to improve provincial competitiveness.

A new Investment Promotion and Business Support Centre has been established in the province to attract investment.

Aside from providing consultancy and support for investment, business development and start-ups, the centre will also promote investment, trade and tourism.

According to Quach Van An, director of the centre, local authorities are making every effort to attract investment projects in the Nam Can Economic Zone in Nam Can district and Khanh An Industrial Park in U Minh district./.
