Ha Nam (VNA) - The northern province of Ha Nam has so far this year attracted 25 investment projects, raising the total number of valid investment projects to 281, according to Head of the Ha Nam province Industrial Park (IP) Management Board Tran Xuan Duong.

They include 14 domestic and 11 foreign investment projects, with total newly-registered capital of nearly 1.98 trillion VND (87.12 million USD), and added capital of 144 million USD.

The province aims to lure between seven and ten additional projects in the rest of the year.

To lure more investment to IPs, the province has urged investors to accelerate land clearance and complete their facilities, activities which the provincial IP management board will assist them in performing.

The locality also helps investors complete administrative procedures quickly and recruit employees, while strengthening their management of environment, human resources and food safety.

The management board also reviews delayed and ineffective projects while holding events with trade promotion agencies, such as the Investment Promotion Centre – North Vietnam, the Japan External Trade Organization, and Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency to lure more investors to local IPs.

By 2020, Ha Nam plans to develop eight concentrated IPs. Six of them are under construction, namely Dong Van I, Dong Van II, Chau Son, Hoa Mac, Dong Van III, and Dong Van IV, on a total area of nearly 1,212 hectares.-VNA
