Ha Nam (VNA) - The northern province of Ha Nam urged industrial park investors to develop their technical infrastructure in order to attract more investors.

Director of the provincial Industrial Zones Authority Tran Xuan Duong said the province prioritises advanced technology and environmentally friendly projects with minimal energy consumption.

The province will bolster information and delegation exchanges regularly with representatives from investment promotion organisations such as the Foreign Investment Agency, the Investment Promotion Centre-North Vietnam, JETRO-Japan and KOTRA- the Republic of Korea, he added.

The authorities will keep a close watch of project implementation in order to timely address any arising problems while administrative procedure reform will also be strengthened in a bid to create the best possible conditions for investors.

In 2015, industrial parks in the province attracted 39 projects, 28 of which were invested by foreign investors with a combined registered investment of 391 million USD.

To date, local industrial parks are home to 230 active investment projects. Of this figure, 131 were FDI. They have a total registered investment capital of 1.3 billion USD.

Meanwhile, 99 domestic direct investment projects have a total registered capital of nearly 10 trillion VND (455 million USD).

Currently, the province has eight industrial parks that cover an area of 2,000 ha. The industrial park Dong Van III, which is under construction and geared towards the supporting industry, will apply its own mechanisms and policies. The locality has approved the plans of 18 industrial clusters, spreading an area of nearly 500 ha.-VNA
