The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang has so far this year attracted 13 foreign-invested projects with a combined investment capital of 2.8 billion USD.

Over half of the new projects, or seven, with a total investment of 1.72 billion USD came to the island district of Phu Quoc. Four of them are underway, including tourist sites of BerJaya Long Beach, Veranda, Cataco and Miramar.

Kien Giang’s Planning and Investment Department Director Dang Cong Huan said that almost all projects’ investors have enough financial abilities and can quickly carry out their projects.

However, he added, some projects are still lagging behind in site clearance as well as in detailed land zoning, resulting in the delay of their implementation as scheduled. No projects are subjected to be revoked their licences, he added./.
