Ha Tinh and Ha Nam provinces introduced their business opportunities and investment incentives at a conference in Seoul on September 30 with the hope to attract investors from the Republic of Korea (RoK).

Addressing the opening ceremony, Chairman of the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Park Young-man said this is a good chance for RoK investors to study investment opportunities in Vietnam in general and in the two provinces in particular.

Vietnamese Ambassador to RoK Tran Trong Toan said the investment-trade promotion conference took place at a good time when Vietnam-RoK cooperation ties are growing in both width and depth, especially after RoK President Park Geun-hye’s Vietnam visit in early September.

The ambassador highlighted the peaceful environment and socio-political stability in Vietnam , as well as the country’s active international integration.

He said the two provinces, Ha Nam in the Red River Delta and Ha Tinh in the central region, both have potential for investors, as they have large workforces and good infrastructure from power and water supply to transport.

During the workshop, officials from the provinces pledged to continue improving administrative procedures, infrastructure and the quality of human resources in order to create a fair, stable, transparent and convenient business environment for RoK investors.

Several RoK firms operating effectively in Ha Tinh and Ha Nam shared their reasons why they chose these provinces as investment and business destinations.-VNA
