Quang Ninh should be the leading locality in implementing Government’s resolution on measures to improve the investment environment, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has said.

Speaking at a meeting on the reform of investment promotion and improvement of competitiveness held in the provincial People’s Committee on June 28, Hai also said that in the time to come, Quang Ninh should focus its investment on building a modern infrastructure to make the fullest use of its potential and advantages.

Special attention must be paid to the transport system, including the road linking Ha Long city with the Hanoi-Hai Phong highway, the Ha Long-Van Don-Mong Cai highway, and the Van Don international airport, he said.

Secretary of the Quang Ninh Party Committee Pham Minh Chinh affirmed that the province will always go along and closely cooperate with, and be ready to support and facilitate investors.

Atsusuke Kawada, chief representative of the Japan External Trade Organisation, spoke highly of Quang Ninh’s potential as well as chances of investment in the province in the time to come, and stressed the importance of the building of trust among the investors.

To do this, local authorities should fully realise what they have promised with enterprises and announce concrete indices on the quality of the trade promotion activities, he added.-VNA
