Long An (VNA) – The Mekong Delta province of Long An has devised key tasks to attract investment and improve the provincial competitiveness index (PCI), said Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Duoc.

Accordingly, the province has been working to improve land access and the issuance of land use right certificate, while taking drastic measures to remove obstacles in land clearance and resident relocation.

To enhance information transparency, Long An will try to make prompt public announcement related to local projects, policy and legal documents.

Aiming to ensure a fair competition environment, the province will work to provide all businesses with better access to information, land and capital, and streamline administrative procedures, among others. Local authorities have inspected agencies that provide public services for companies in a bid to make them deliver better performance.

The implementation of the one-stop mechanism and e-governance as well as the organisation of regular dialogues between provincial leaders and businessmen are also prioritised.

In 2015, Long An’ PCI reached 60.86 points, ranked 9 th nationwide. The index was 0.51 points lower than that of 2014, leading to the province dropping two places in its ranking. However, Long An remained the second best performer in the Mekong Delta behind Dong Thap.-VNA
