Ha Nam (VNA) – A delegation from the Vietnam-Republic of Korea Association for Society, Economy, and Culture (COVESECA) visited the Red River Delta province of Ha Nam on July 4 to study the locality’s investment climate.

COVESECA Managing Director Min Byongsook said that members of the association were looking to seek cooperative opportunities with Ha Nam province in the fields of healthcare, education, and industry.

In particular, they hope to join hands with relevant sides to establish a nurse training school and Korean language training centre, as well as invest in land for golf courses and other services.

Receiving the delegation, Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Pham Sy Loi briefed the guests on the province’s potential, its strengths in economic development, and its mechanisms in place to attract investments.

Its advantageous geographical location, comprehensive infrastructure, and preferential policies have all contributed to making Ha Nam province a magnet for both domestic and foreign investors, he noted, adding that the locality has zoned off areas to develop healthcare services, high-quality education, and high-tech agriculture.

Currently, the province is home to over 250 foreign-invested projects, half of which are backed by Korean enterprises.

Loi said that Ha Nam province stands ready to support COVESECA members in either collaborating with the Ha Nam Medical College to open a nursing training school, or offers to assist in setting up a separate facility for this purpose.

Welcoming the RoK side’s initiative to form a Korean language training centre, he recommended the association work with Ha Nam’s vocational school where the Korean language is already being taught under agreements with RoK firms in the locality.

The province also welcomes investors to develop golf courses so that it can become a golf hub for the Red River Delta region.

After the meeting, the RoK delegation made a fact-finding tour to some industrial parks in the province. -VNA
