Ha Nam (VNA) - Ha Nam authorities will always accompany and create all favourable conditions for foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises to invest and expand production in the province, said a provincial leader.

Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Nguyen Dinh Khang made the statement at a meeting on January 16 with representatives of more than 200 FDI businesses operating in Ha Nam province.

Khang highly evaluated the FDI enterprises’ contributions to the province’s socio-economic development in the recent past, especially in restructuring the provincial economy and raising its industrial production value.

The FDI firms have also contributed greatly to the supporting, processing and manufacturing industries in Ha Nam, generating a large number of jobs for local workers, making remarkable contributions to the provincial budget and actively joining social activities, he said.

The official expressed his hope that the enterprises would always unite together, assist each other, fairly compete and strictly carry out their commitments to the province, particularly those related to environmental protection, progress and effectiveness of investment.

At the meeting, representatives of the participating businesses suggested the provincial authorities to assist them in building dormitories for workers, training personnel and ensuring traffic safety, power and clean water supply.

In 2018, Ha Nam recorded gross regional domestic product (GRDP) growth of 11.5 percent while its budget collection reached 7.9 trillion VND (400 million USD), a year-on-year rise of 26 percent.

The province attracted 126 projects last year, including 46 FDI projects with combined registered capital of 445 million USD, ranking in the top 10 provinces and cities in terms of FDI attraction.-VNA
