Central province of Nghe An has set a target of attracting at least 75 investment projects with a total registered capital of more than 12 trillion VND (564 million USD) in 2014.

To meet the goal, the provincial authorities will focus on improving investment environment and creating favourable conditions for investors.

In addition, the province will also apply a number of measures to raise its provincial competitiveness index (PCI), simplify administrative procedures for investors while supporting them in land clearance and human resources.

In 2013, Nghe An granted investment licences to 72 projects with total registered reaching to nearly 12.9 trillion VND.

These projects, including five foreign invested ones, employed about 12,000 local labourers.-VNA
