Hau Giang (VNA) – The Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang has introduced investment opportunities in agriculture and renewable energy to firms from the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s Jeollanam province.

At a working session on August 22 with a delegation from the Jeollanam Business Association, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Tuan said his locality is calling for investment in agricultural production, farm produce processing and clean energies such as solar and wind power.

Hau Giang will create the optimal conditions for RoK firms, particularly those from Jeollanam, to invest in the province.

However, he also noted that investors must observe regulations on environmental protection.

Oh Jang Seon, President of the Jeollanam Business Association, said Korean enterprises are interested in Vietnam’s market, adding that many members of the association operate in the fields that Hau Giang is calling for investment.

He expressed his hope that investment promotion events will be organised after the working session, and Hau Giang will help the RoK firms connect with local farmers and promote their products.

The association currently has 50 members, and another 50 plan to join. Most of them operate in agriculture, industry, food, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural products processing.

The delegation will visit several agricultural cooperatives and industrial parks in the province.-VNA
