Kien Giang (VNA) - The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang plans to spend 17 billion VND (around 734,000 USD) on organizing investment, trade and tourism promotion activities both at home and abroad in 2019.

According to the provincial Tourism, Commerce and Investment Promotion Centre, the local authorities will hold conferences to call for more investment into Kien Giang and arrange dialogues with enterprises to seek feedback about the investment environment.

Local enterprises, especially those operating in the fields of agriculture, food processing and tourism, are encouraged to join trade and tourism fairs in and outside the province, as well as those abroad, thus introducing and seeking markets for their products.

Delegations representing local firms will be helped to participate in exhibitions and fairs, conferences and forums in Asia and Europe, to seek ways to expand tourism markets and further promote trade and investment.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Le Thi Minh Phung stressed the province is working to enhance connections with both domestic investors and foreign partners, while focusing on speeding up administrative reform, thus creating an attractive and transparent investment environment towards attracting more investment.

Attention has been paid to fostering relations with foreign trade and investment organisations, foreign consulate generals in Vietnam, and overseas Vietnamese communities, thus luring investment in the fields of hi-tech and organic agriculture, agro-aquaculture-forestry processing, food production, supporting industry, development of industrial parks, urban and  tourism areas, waste treatment and renewable energy.

The local authorities also pay heed to expanding tourism promotion activities in both traditional and potential markets and developing more road, water and air-way tourism routes.-VNA
