Ha Giang (VNA) – The northern mountainous province of Ha Giang rolls out the red carpet for foreign investors, including those from Japan, to seek investment opportunities, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Son has said.

Ha Giang signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Japan-Vietnam support industry assistance joint stock company in June 2016 after the Japanese firm made several fact-finding tours in the fields of healthcare, tourism, vocational training, and agriculture.

The Japanese company has supported the province to build a rehabilitation hospital and a centre for training human resources in the health sector. 

It also helped the Ha Giang vocational college carry out a training programme in automobile technology and veterinary.

The two sides have implemented cooperation programmes to develop hi-tech agriculture and tourism.

President of the company Murooka Katsunori said in the third quarter of 2017, his firm is stepping up coordination with the province to start the construction of the Japan-Vietnam joint venture rehabilitation hospital.

In addition to completing the cherry park project in Quan Ba district, the two sides have launched a centre of testing and piloting plant varieties in association with processing products for exports to Japan.

The company will promote the strengths of Ha Giang in Japan and dispatch business organisations to explore the local investment environment, Murooka Katsunori said.

According to Son, local authorities have granted investment license and business registration certificate for the company. 

The provincial People’s Committee pledged to direct relevant agencies to promptly address difficulties for businesses to ensure the progress of investment projects, he said.

He expressed his belief that with the effective bilateral cooperation, the Japan-Vietnam rehabilitation hospital in Vi Xuyen district and the cherry park in Quan Ba district will open up huge opportunities to serve Japanese tourists to the northernmost province.-VNA
