A joint effort by foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises, local businesses, and the authorities of central Da Nang city is working towards an ideal investment climate in the locality.

On December 5, the municipal authorities met with local entrepreneurs to jointly seek ways for bettering investment climate and FDI attraction.

Over the past years, FDI enterprises have significantly helped change the city’s appearance and business environment, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Van Huu Chien said at the event.

He added that these enterprises have also joined in accelerating the city’s economic shifting, market and service development.

By November this year, the city had 279 FDI projects capitalising at over 3.31 billion USD. Most of them have been operating stably, creating jobs for more than 38,000 local people.

The municipal authorities have constantly gathered businesses’ feedback on investment climate to make necessary improvements while paying due attention to developing a complete infrastructure for them.

A club of FDI enterprises, established in the city in 2012, has joined hands with the authorities in these efforts.

Da Nang is making every effort to become a harmonious, friendly and peaceful metropolis by 2020.

The city is striving for a civilised society, rich cultural life and a knowledge-based economy, and an economic hub of the central region.-VNA
