Ha Nam (VNA) – Ha Nam province will create favourable conditions to attract more Japanese businesses to invest in local projects, said Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Truong Quoc Huy.

During his working session with a business delegation from Japan’s Nagahama city on November 5, Huy affirmed that Ha Nam always considers Japan an important partner in cooperation and investment attraction.

Enterprises investing in Ha Nam will be supported in terms of electricity, water, worker recruitment and security, he said.

The province has earmarked Dong Van III Industrial Park, which has a favourable location and well-built infrastructure, for Japanese investors, the official said.

Huy told his guests that Ha Nam highly evaluated Japanese companies’ investment capacity and cooperation, adding that Japanese firms have always observed their investment commitments to the province, had good working environments and ensured stable incomes for local workers.

Ha Nam is now home to 226 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects with combined registered capital of 2.5 billion USD, including more than 70 Japanese-invested projects worth over 800 million USD focusing on manufacturing, automobile, motorbike and electronic equipment production.

Mayor of Nagahama Fujii Yuji, head of the delegation, said two firms from Nagahama have been investing effectively in Ha Nam thanks to support from the local authorities. Many other companies of Nagahama also want to study investment opportunities in the province, he added.

Yuji called on the provincial authorities to continue assisting the two Nagahama businesses and create favourable conditions for other enterprises to learn about the local investment environment as well as helping them recruit highly-skilled workers.-VNA
